Quotation of the Week
‘A program is like a poem: you cannot write a poem without writing it. Yet people talk about programming as if it were a production process and measure “programmer productivity” in terms of “number of lines of code produced”. In so doing they book that number on the wrong side of the ledger. We should always refer to “the number of lines of code spent”.’
– E. W. Dijkstra
