2016, May 31    

I’ve finally made up my mind, I will definitely launch a subpage on this blog with all the quotes I think are worth to know. But before it happens, here’s the second part of the ones I like most:

"No matter how slow you are writing clean code, you will always be slower if you make a mess."
Uncle Bob Martin
"Make it work first before you make it work fast."
Bruce Whiteside
“Copy and paste is a design error.”
David Parnas
"90% of the functionality delivered now is better than 100% delivered never."
Kernighan & Plauger
"It seems that perfection is attained, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing more to take away."
Antoine de Saint Exupéry
"Measuring programming progress by lines of code is like measuring aircraft building progress by weight."
Bill Gates
"A complex system that works is invariably found to have evolved from a simple system that worked."
John Gall
