About Code Nuts

"Code Nuts" doesn't teach you how to code. There are lots of way better places for that. "Code Nuts" explores how you feel about doing something you love among people you hate.

Isn't it cool to talk about building stuff? Algorithms, data structures, platforms, languages, and "magic"? Sure we makers struggle and make mistakes. That's part of the charm.

People mistakes, on the other hand, are never fun or useful. Until you need fresh material for comic jokes.

It's hard to find something that makes us laugh. And think. And cry. Eddiots does all three. We laugh at the punchline. We think about the content. And we cry when we realize that Eddie will just keep on doing it.

About Eddiots

This is a work of fiction inspired by real events I witnessed, endured, or instigated.

Every character and company is a composite of real people and places from my work life. I just changed the names to protect the incompetent.

Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, or businesses, active or bankrupt, is either coincidental or unavoidable because these eddiots are everywhere!

Thanks to all you bossholes, players, liars, fakers, slackers, posers, jerks, cheaters, and producers of endless technical debt. I used to hate you but now I love you because I need no imagination. I just share forward the suffering you shared with me.

About Eddie Ottic

Eddie Ottic has written 2 million lines of code for 94 firms in 50 years. There's a good chance something you own was built with his software.

He loves coding but hates going to work. Everywhere he's ever been had sufficient tech. None had sufficient management but plenty of bossholes.

When he says this, he's "not a team player". But when his comics say the same thing, others listen, laugh, and learn the inside truths no one else teaches. That's why he built eddiots.

He's a fair writer, a lousy artist, and a lazy developer. But combining them makes the magic vector art about his long I.T. incarceration. Read it, learn something, and most of all, have fun!
