Software perfecto

“You can’t write Perfect software. Did that hurt? It shouldn’t. Accept it as an axiom of life. Embrace it. Celebrate it. Because perfect software doesn’t exist”

 — Andy Hunt, Dave Thomas

El precio de la fiabilidad es la búsqueda de la máxima simplicidad

There is nothing a mere scientist can say that will stand against the flood of a hundred million dollars. But there is one quality that cannot be purchased in this way — and that is reliability. The price of reliability is the pursuit of the utmost simplicity. It is a price which the very rich find most hard to pay.
