    Miscellaneous

    Clean Code : Too much of Good Thing? - http://xprogramming.com/articles/too-much-of-a-good-thing/. This is my personal favorite. Ron Jeffries does a great job in discussing about clean code. I love the last para of this post which says

    “Bad code will slow you down if you write it for even a few days. If you write bad code long enough to get an actual product out, you will deliver that product more slowly, and with more bugs, than if you had gone clean.” 

    I have personally experienced this situation and would request every developer who is serious about their work and passionate about their skills to read the book on Clean Code by Bob Martin.
