Here are some quotes that I have been keeping in mind for a long time. I've been glad for the 2 about documentation whenever I had to go back to a project I didn't think I'd see again, and the last one helps when I'm debugging.
"Document unto others as you would have them document unto you."
-- Kreitzberg & Schneiderman, The Elements of Fortran Style
"Always code as if the person who ends up maintaining your code will be a violent psychopath who knows where you live."
-- Martin Golding
"Computer system analysis is like child-rearing; you can do grievous damage, but you cannot ensure success."
-- Tom DeMarco
"If your project doesn't work, look for the part that you didn't think was important."
-- Arthur Bloch
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
