Another great Wardism
One of the best parts about working with Ward Cunningham when he and I were at patterns & practices is that I’d get to listen to him, and hear these gems of wisdom fairly often. Now that we’re both gone from p&p, I’m reduced to finding these quotes as they are relayed by others. Here is a quote from Ward that really captures the essence of what it means to write great Agile code:
Take all the time you need to make the code as high quality as it can be, but don’t take any time to add functionality that you don’t need at the moment.
