Code Thought of the Day

Last week the guest on DotNetRocks was Steve McConnell, author of Code Complete. I had read about 2/3 of the first edition and liked it, so I wanted to get the new edition and read it. My team lead was nice enough to buy it for me and expense it, so I am reading it now. Here's a thought that is often so true. Many businesses Every business I've worked at since my foray into full-time software development could learn from this:

"In many projects, the only documentation available to programmers is the code itself. Requirements specifications and design documents can go out of date, but the source code is always up to date. Consequently, it's imperative that the source code be of the highest possible quality."

Alas, will the world ever learn? Surely some of you have been somewhere that doesn't have this problem :)
