The Achilles’ heel of computer programming – Redo Reluctance!
February 10, 2010 / Written by Johan Lyreborn
Computer programming is a piece of art. The programmer is the artist. Each master piece in the shape of algorithms and data structures takes days, weeks, months, or years to accomplish. The difference between good and bad programmers is their ability to throw bad work in the bin and start all over again. Programmers that fall in love with their code and refuse to redo are doomed to be ranked as mediocre. Programmers that prefer to redo instead of fixing existing code are the winners and heroes. If you have something that does not really work? Remember; Redo will always win over keep!
