Writing code is art. It is creativity. It is being creator. It is being Yehudi Menuhin, standing in front of a hundred artists playing different instruments making different sounds, yet purposefully orchestrating them, fusing them, blending them all into sound that transforms to reach your ears as brilliant music. The greatness then lies not in their ability to play an instrument or yours of conducting a hundred artists but in making them achieve the effect of your audience losing a breath, a moment, indeed themselves.
The effect, the outcome, the result is the real creation. Not the method.
Not the process itself, but its performance.
