A programmer is not a PC repair person.

A programmer is not a PC repair man. Ritesh Kumar Gupta

One of the 9 truths that computer programmers know that most people don’t..

A programmer is one who deals with algorithms and design principles, not the one who repairs a computer. We may know how the internal workings of a computer work, how code fits together (or rather hacked together as I explained in Fact #1). But, that does not mean we know how to fix hardware. That does not mean we know how to fix that issue you’re having with chrome that makes it crash everytime you open it, or why your computer is always overheating and the battery dying. Computers programmers, at the least, know how to program computers, not fix them.Sawyer MacLeaod
