Programming fundamentals not to forget


A Programmer's KISS

A Programmer’s KISS

Read it in the comments section of this post: http://www.codinghorror.com/blog/2007/09/practicing-the-fundamentals-the-new-turing-omnibus.html

What would be the fundamentals that a good programmer might forget?

KISS. RTFM. PEBKAC. DRY. If it ain’t broken, don’t fix it. Cheap, fast, accurate; pick two. If your program is idiot-proof, they’ll find a better idiot. Any piece of software reflects the organizational structure that produced it.

The details of the acronyms used are as follows:

  1. KISS – Keep ISimple and Stupid
  2. RTFM – Read The F***ing Manual
  3. PEBKAC – Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair
  4. DRY – Don’t Repeat Yourself
