I heard these words today. “Best Code is No Code At All” and I could not agree more.
I had more thoughts to share about best code being no code at all, but I came across this article written on codinghorror.com and could not agree more with the entire post.
My favourite parts of the post:
As a software developer, you are your own worst enemy. The sooner you realize that, the better off you’ll be.
Every new line of code you willingly bring into the world is code that has to be debugged, code that has to be read and understood, code that has to be supported.
If you love writing code— really, truly *love to write code*— you’ll love it enough to write as little of it as possible.
Food for thought for all the future projects and tasks I work on.
