Best Coding Food


So, you have to get something out in the morning. Your client is pacing and texting you every 10 minutes. Long night ahead. Sure plenty of freshly ground coffee (and whatever else) at hand, but what about basic food things for an all-nighter? What do you prefer for an all-night session?

Trouble is, I really like beer, but it does not improve my coding skills, no matter how much I try the combination.... Other substances likewise...

Huh!!!
You wanna improve your coding skill with food??

Don't forget to tell me if you've found one. Then i'm not going to read the programming books anymore, i'd rather eat that thing the whole day.

After I had some beer, I program things wich work perfectly The major problem is the day after... when looking at the source, I don't understand anything I wrote that night... really, not kidding... fortunatly, I don't drink that much (anymore...)

I would chose ALL of those, but you set it to only one option

Curses. I say pizza and some pie, or if you can spare the time some pogos. Hmm. Yeh, that is my final exam meals I get 2 extra large pizzas and that is all my meals, along with about 50 pots of coffee, for 2 days before exams

I've discovered that Eating + Computing = Messiness. I prefer to concentrate on my code rather than what I'm nibbling on. If I need a break, I'll get up from the computer. Let it not be said that munching can't help you think, though: In general, I think better if I'm munching on something, especially if it's sweet or junkfoodish.

When I'm into the code I don't eat anything. Coffee, water and chain-smoking cigarettes, with manuels spread out everywhere. If I get stuck, I might eat some ice cream and talk to my husband about the problem. He hates computers, but he is familiar enough over the years that he can listen and make suggestions on how I fixed the problem in the past. Learned through osmosis, kinda like I did football.
