2010: Year of no more coding

Let us start the 2010 in the same way as every other IT year before…

This one is coated in a tick layer of academic paint, too. My comment: just add water and bake for 20 minutes, in the pre-heated oven”…and your application is ready. Voila!

Happy new 2010, with no more coding!
