Description


“Byte Me” takes the reader through an entire day as seen through the logical mind of a computer programmer. To illustrate the thought processes involved, the book is written in easy-to-read computer code. It follows the programmer from the moment he awakens and has to decide whether or not to press the snooze button, through the tortuous hours of dealing with less than brilliant users, to the evening when he must decide how to spend his free time. Dave Feder was a computer programmer for 35 years and worked at many different kinds of businesses, dealing with many different kinds of people. From an IT perspective he had seen it all. But despite all those years in the field of data processing, Dave still felt passionate about his writing, and decided to return to his roots as an author. Dave received a Stanley H. Lang creative writing award when he graduated from Northeast High School in Philadelphia. While attending Boston University he was an assistant editor, reporter, and occasional columnist for the Daily Free Press campus newspaper. He graduated from BU in 1978 with a degree in journalism, and had a short career in writing before he joined the dark side and became a programmer. But then, near the end of 2016, he climbed the wall and was able to escape. Other books by Dave Feder include “The Book of Sucks: A Complete List of Vintage Whines,” “Random Thoughts Are Better Than No Thoughts At All,” “The Boston Blizzard of ’78,” “Quick Short Stories and Some Jokes for People on the Go,” “An Exclusive Interview with Beanie the Cat,” “Tortured Shrimp” and “25 Easy to Make, Easy to Eat Recipes.”
