Being a programmer I’ve always been able to relate to Jonathan Coulton’s “Code Monkey” song. Thankfully as the years have passed the treatment I have received from others has steadily improved.
Anyway, I didn’t start this post to write about the experience of being a programmer, I’ll save that for another time. Instead I wanted to mention that I have really been enjoying the “Code Monkey Save World” comics written by Greg Pak and based on songs by Jonathan Coulton. I backed their Kickstarter project and am glad I did as I’ve really enjoyed everything so far. The comics are great and everything I hoped they would be and better. The CMSW Acoustic Album is excellent as well.
Note that some of his songs have swear words and/or adult content so they are not for everyone, but if you like humor and are not easily offended by life in general then you might want to give them a listen.
That’s all for now.
