What happens when artists started to write code?

I think this will be great.

We programmers and
engineers are left brained. we extensively use our left side brain in creating forms and designs and controls and codes. Our left brain just love the details and step-by-step actions and formula like patterns and analysis of details.

Clicks are Expensive
Engineers like to click, the more clicks the better, they like too many buttons they like huge menus and large set of options and long toolbars they like to include every single detail they know. Because they think that the more I include the better people will say I am a great programmer. They just see everything is important.

I like to imagine this. You write an application, and give it to a user to test a particular task. Each task is equal to 10 points. Each time the user clicks you lose a point. See how many points left, if you went to the minus you should reengineer your interface.

I worked hard on that. Must include it

How many clicks you need to do in order to achieve a single task?

On the other hand musicians and artists think smoothly eliminating all the details in their way aiming to achieve a single goal with the power of creativity.

When musicians play they just think of that moment how to deliver a clear sound directly. When artists paints they think how to emerge a story from the painting.

It would be great if we have right-brained programmer.
