Put a business strategist at the IT helm of a manufacturer where the ERP system is going south or the wireless WAN in Shanghai keeps crashing and you'll see a lot of frustration. Heads-down technology work isn't a strength of the business strategist CIO, nor usually is it what he wants to do with his time. For that you need a function head CIO.
But don't call on a CIO who likes to roll up his sleeves and get down and dirty with code when the enterprise needs to convince a business unit to give up the shadow IT project it's running for the greater good. Instead, call on a transformational CIO experienced in leading change and making it stick.
查词典,
down-and-dirty:1、竞争激烈的;肆无忌惮的;2、无掩饰的;直接的
放在此处似乎都解释不通。难道颜色部分的意思是“着手编写代码”的意思?

想进一步探讨一下:
get down and dirty with code 从字面意思来分析是,因为/由于(with)code而变脏(get dirty),那么down的意思从何体现?
翻译时,总觉得词典也无能为力。因为许多词典对down and dirty的解释是其他意思。

down and dirty 并不是真的表示弄脏手

有点“亲自下去做本应由下属做的事情”的意思。

来自习语:get hands dirty

就像JL说的,亲自实际动手操作。因为老外周末喜欢在车库里亲自动手鼓捣汽车或其他机器,弄得满手油污。

down含有“本应不该由你这种有身份的人做却去做”的含义,
