Why Computer Programming is Hard

I’ve been thinking a lot about why computer programming is hard.  Today I think I figured it out.

And the answer is invisibility.

Computer programming is full of invisible shit that messes up your programs.  Trailing white space.  Line feeds and carriage returns.  Even .files can be invisible.

How are you supposed to debug things you can’t even see them?  What other industry (other than maybe magic) has invisible objects?  I mean really?  Who’s idea was this???
