“Be curious. Read widely. Try new things. What people call intelligence just boils down to curiosity”. - Aaron Swartz
Codestinger is created with open mind and vision inspired from many opensource organizations, individuals and communities sharing free knowledge. At codestinger we firmly believe that we learn by sharing. This Site is developed with this vision to impart our experience and knowledge that we have gained over time with the community on the web.
Python is the core technology codestinger is built on too and is strong supporter of the Python community in general. Apart from the simplicity of the language itself, Python and its core principles The Zen of Python by Tim Peters have been the pillars which have inspired us to create codestinger. A language is just a tool, at codestinger we strongly consider Python as a weapon of our choice.
Not only we believe the idea of developing something that is simple yet powerful and beautiful in design should be applied to code and software but also to our life's. At codestinger we describe ourselves to be "Perfectionist" in things that we do and try to achieve that one way, one obvious way to achieve a task of which the implementation is easy to explain to the masses. We go through rigorous testing with different applications, methods of solving before finally coming to one obvious solution. Well nothing can be as perfect but with simplicity, discipline and working hard to build something beautiful one can be as close.
Inspired by :
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others”. – Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love
