General Development I like this one: "By definition, a program is an entity that is run by the computer. It talks directly to the CPU and the OS. Code that does not talk directly to the CPU and the OS, but is instead run by some other program that does talk directly to the CPU and the OS, is not a program; it's a script." Here's the other eleven.

"What does that even mean?


It means the guy who said that can't code to save his life.
"

Notice he was also the guy that came up with "If you have to use the scroll bar to see all of your class, your class is too big." I hope I never have to work with that guy's code.

UPDATE: Oh dear god... that guy used to be on Microsoft's C# team.

I can agree with that, if you are using a 30" monitor and a smallish font.

TBH I think it is a trite way of saying

"Make sure you aren't putting any unnecessary shit in there."

I see a lot of massive classes where some things could have been broken down better via inheritance.

I would hope that's not controversial.

Ah but don't you know? OOP is evil incarnate.
