Coding and Chatting- How they affect each other.

Today I choose to write this article based on my experience in past few years. Social networking sites are popular and people like to spend most of their time meeting new people and talking to them. One of the main thing people like to do is chatting, one of the easiest way to communicate with new and old friends. But the thing I am interested is how it affects the software professionals who write code.

Chatting may refer to any kind of communication over the Internet that offers a real-time transmission of text messages from sender to receiver. Its a wonderful technology to communicate with people. Most of us use a lot of jargon and short form of words to make it happen. There is nothing wrong in it, but we generally get habituated with this short form of worlds (like Please -Pls etc).  This short form of words become annoying for a software professional when they write such words in software code. I personally have done the same mistake while writing log messages in professional code. As we are habituated with such words, they get a place in our logs messages/documentations. Also being familiar with such words, it become difficult to review such code errors.

The conclusion is we stop using social networks. I am joking- That cant be true. But we need to be extra careful while writing code and should omit those newly created words. Being a software professional we may avoid using short forms of words while chatting and make our mind familiar with the correct words.
