Why we have code issues today
"Just a string of numbers" explains why coding today has become so bloated and full of security loopholes and performance issues. For many coders today, I believe it's not about doing it right and doing it the best way. It's quantity over quality. Let's just get it out there and fix it later if we have to.
Because of the advances in coding languages, a lot (not all) of the younger coders don't have a solid foundation of what really goes on behind the scenes; just like many people today don't have a solid foundation of how a computer works. It just does. The love and passion for IT has turned to a desire for high pay and job security.
