So what exactly is code poetry?…
“It can be a piece of text that can be read as code and run as program, but also read as poetry. It can mean a human language poetry that has mathematical elements and codes in it, or even code that aims for elegant expression within severe constraints, like a haiku or a sonnet, or code that generates automatic poetry. Poems that are readable to humans and readable to computers perform a kind of cyborg double coding.” First Stanford code poetry slam reveals the literary side of computer code
Coding can be beautiful. As I start I read other people’s code on Github, I appreciate it even more. At certain times, it turns into a form of art. The way each developer works around their constraints and just amazing.
I did not know of code poetry but now that I know…maybe I can try to write one too.
