The problem of the fourth player at poker
What is a chess player’s worst nightmare? It’s obvious, isn’t it? Not having anyone to play against. And that of three friends around the green poker table? Also simple. The fourth player is missing to start a nice evening with chips, cards and the inevitable glass of whiskey. And finally, what is the worst time for a programmer? Easy. Not having a project or a problem to solve.
Who hasn’t ever had that feeling of not having an idea to weigh up, a fault to solve or a goal to achieve? In short, nothing to sink your hands into or to devote your coding skills to. Because, after all, when it is not a matter of your job, then it is about a new challenge with yourself, undertaken to deepen the use of a programming language or experiment with code to force a machine to do what you want, perhaps even despite its hardware limitations…
