Psychopaths And Bozeltines

As I sat down to write my next post, I was staring at the blank page when this quote came to mind:

Always code as if the guy who ends up maintaining your code will be a violent psychopath who knows where you live. – Damian Conway


I really do try to take Damian’s message to heart. How about you? Do you buy into it? Do you buy into this instead:

Always code as if the maintainers of your code will be bozeltines who won’t have a freakin’ clue about what it does, how it works, or how to modify it – and so that they’ll be in awe of how much smarter you are than them.
