Coding: Less Code Is Better Code

Rich Skrenta (he of Open Directory Project fame) has blogged how code is our enemy. The following phrases in particular: “The more code you have, the more places there are for bugs to hide….The longer it takes a new employee to make sense of your system. If you have to refactor there’s more stuff to move around.”

These sound so true to me and I agree with Jeff that Smaller Code Is Better, but I’d prefer smaller, segmented re-usable code with comments over a large bloated undocumented mess any day!
