“If it’s stupid but it works, it isn’t stupid.”

I am stupid. But I work. Therefore I am not stupid?.... 🤔

In all reality though this describes every software stack I’ve ever configured and deployed.

"Most hackers actually don't care much about code quality. Thus, if they get something working which seems to solve a problem, they stick with it. If this kind of software development is applied to the same source code throughout its entire life-cycle, we're left with large amounts of code, a totally screwed code structure, and a flawed system design. This is because of a lack of conceptual clarity and integrity in the development process."
