One of the most consolidated misconceptions about programming, since the early days, is the idea that such activity is purely technical, completely exact in nature, like Math and Physics. Computation is exact, but programming is not. The first is a result of a machine operation, and the latter is still a human activity.

This talk presents a different perspective about programming as an art and a form of personal expression, showing the importance of curiosity and creativity for building excellent developers.
