Things I've learned in my 20 years as a software engineer  ↦

This was written over a year ago, but since it took Justin Etheredge 20 years to acquire these 20 pithy (his word) pieces of wisdom, I don’t think it’ll be going stale anytime soon. My three favs, as a sampler:

  1. The best code is no code, or code you don’t have to maintain
  2. Every system eventually sucks, get over it
  3. Your data is the most important part of your system
