The Pragmatic Craftsman :: Simplicity from complexity : by Stanley Kubasek ::

A Simple Design

Simplicity always wins, in my opinion. The following two quotes from Programming Pearls (book I’m reading now) need no further comment: they nail it.

A designer knows he has arrived at perfection not when there is no longer anything to add, but wen there is no longer anything to take away.
–Antoine de Saint-Exupery
the French writer and aircraft designer (quoted in Programming Pearls)
More programmers should judge their work by this criterion. Simple programs are usally more reliable, secure, robust and efficient than their complex cousins, and easier to build and maintain.
–Jon Bentley
in Programming Pearls
