Good code is just legacy code that doesn’t get in the way. Write code that's easy to delete.

Write code that is easy to delete, not easy to extend.

“Every line of code is written without reason, maintained out of weakness, and deleted by chance” Jean-Paul Sartre’s Programming in ANSI C. Every line of code written comes at a price: maintenance. To avoid paying for a lot of code, we build reusable software.
