Programming System Complexity

September 17, 2012 — Leave a comment

Jacques Mattheij posted a great article today that orders the complexity of ‘programming’ tasks by least difficult (0) to most difficult (27).  Can see from this list that most people can really only get up to 4, professionals that deal with complex systems every day can typically get up to 8 or 9 and anything past 11 requires intimate knowledge of coding.

What I found particularly interesting in this post is that the author ranked ‘spreadsheets with simple formulas’ as being more difficult than ‘static websites, html & basic css’.  I guess that means all of us business folks really don’t have an excuse for not knowing how to make a basic website.  There are some really great resources available these days to learn the basics of web design from CodecademyTeamTreeHouse, and others.
