If you ever find yourself writing a LOT of complex code to solve a problem, you are probably heading in the wrong direction.

Every line of code you don't write is a line of code you don't have to test or maintain.

Writing code should be a weapon of last resort.

@urusan Every line of code you don't write is a line of code that probably won't work.

@trhr I'm not proposing that we don't write code, but rather that it be minimized.

I've deleted a lot more code than I've written over my career, resulting in better software.

@urusan I’m proud to say I’ve written zero lines of code toward my most recent project.
