Livable Code

Rules for liveable code

  • Don’t make it worse
  • Value improvement over consistency
  • Inline everything
  • Talk more
    • Don’t ask for permission to clean up. (but be upfront)
    • Don’t ask for forgiveness either. It is part of your job. (but learn every time from your mistakes)
    • Do ask for advice. (but don’t always take it)
    • Do work together. because you get to live here together

The important part of software is not the code The important part of software is not the people either

The important part of software is the system (both code and people together)
