[...] a handful of literature-minded coders gathered at Stanford University to celebrate the inherent beauty of programming languages, both written and spoken. Rules of poetryCode poets find resonance between the constraints of programming and the traditional rules of poetry, where forms like the sonnet dictate strict rhyme schemes and syllable counts. Aimee Norton's "Apache Code Errors" arranged common error classifications like "303 see other," "302 found" and "409 conflict" to build a minimalist narrative. Julian Bliss, a 20-year-old computer engineering student from Santa Clara University, presented a code that appeared to spell out "hello, world" - a test phrase programmers often use when picking up a new coding language. Adding dramaInstead of simply reading the code, Dimri inserted some interpretation and drama - for instance saying the line virtues After the slam, contestants stuck around to wax poetic about the nature of code and poetry, debating whether higher-level languages were better for code poetry than clunkier ones like C, or whether punctuation - which is key in programming (tough luck, e e cummings) - should be spoken aloud.

Not long ago, healthy redbay trees were easy to find in coastal Georgia. Related to the avocado, these evergreens grew 45 feet tall, with black berries that fed songbirds and aromatic leaves that lent their flavor to traditional gumbo.
