Q: What's the cleverest kind of code?
A: No code at all!
I was looking for this quote:
"Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place. Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it."
...and I found it on Chris Sell's blog.
But in the comments I found this even more profound point...
"Debugging is like farting - it's not so bad when it's your own code."
And that's truer than anything. Code is always noxious to human senses. It's not built for human consumption. You get used to your own. But even still -- it's noxious stuff. The less of it the better.Next → ← Previous
