Complexity Simplified

So I've been taking a programming course, which is coming to an end in the form of an exam two days from now. Well technically there is another course's exam tomorrow... and yet another one a few days later. But that's not the point. And yes I've studied.
Anyway one of the takeaways that the programming professor emphasised on was learning to manage complexity. Sure there were loads of techniques we picked up on that was specific to programming. A heck of a journey through recursion, loops, nesting, and so on. Again, not the point. Those techniques were merely tools to tackle problems that we attempt to solve through coding.

In fact, they really can extend beyond the coding box into "real life".
