This is the best article on code I have seen:

 

http://www.bloomberg.com/graphics/2015-paul-ford-what-is-code/

 

It's long (25,000+ words), a novella more than an essay. It's a platform-independent, historical-to-present, critical look at coding and I think every developer should read it.

 

I found it last week on Hacker News a site I recommend developers also check out to see what's going on in the wider world of programming.
