  • Programs must not be regarded as code for computers, but as literature for humans.
  • Reducing size and complexity is the triumph.

Most places I worked use these criteria:
  • Programs must not be understandable by anyone else. Your job security depends on this.
  • We get paid by the number of lines of code we generate. Why use ADD YEAR-1 TO YEAR-2 GIVING YEAR-3 when you can create many sub-expressions first?
