Acronyms for the unwary…

Computing is full of acronyms…

The latest two I’ve come across are a little more amusing than most…

CRUD: It stands for Create, Read, Update, Delete and refers to the 4 actions a user performs with data stored in a database.

DRY: Don’t Repeat Yourself, in other words don’t do the same thing twice, don’t cut two bits of code when you can write it the once and use it in multiple places!

Of course the logical combination of writing efficient code for managing database records would mean that you’d be keeping your CRUD DRY! Boom, boom!

I’ll get my coat…

“I’ll be back” – T-101.
