Deleting code

Sunday 22 December 2002

There’s only one thing that comes close to the pleasure of writing a new chunk of code that does useful things, and that’s deleting an old chunk of code that doesn’t.

I guess not everyone feels that way. I find I often have to push co-workers to go ahead and delete code we don’t need any more. I’ve dealt with it enough that I went ahead and wrote an article about it: Deleting code.
