"A good software developer writes good code. Better software developer deletes bad code."

Me, after using Generic types in some source code and deleting 250 lines effectively.

    Would that mean a great/champion developer would not write code at all?

    @theKarlisK no code means no bugs

    @cafecortado Of course then there are the managers that think 'no code' languages are perfect, despite all that configuration being a form of code as well~

    @cafecortado Amen, it is important to write as less code as possible. Fewer tests, fewer bugs.

    Until you end up with an orphaned special case that isn't representable in the terms of any of your generics, so you start adding hooks to everything.

    One parameter I follow to judge quality of code is bugs to loc.
    meaning 4/1000 is good. 2/1 is really bad.
    But negative loc? is da best.

    @theKarlisK best developer doesn’t writes shit code but doesn’t accept it.
