Philosophies

A handful of things that I seriously believe in. (Click to expand, if you're interested.)

  • Occam's razor is still sharp

    In problem solving, the simplest solution tends to be the correct one. Simple things are easier to understand and prove for correctness. I also assert that nearly all complicated things may be broken down into simple parts.

    Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place. Therefore, if you write code as cleverly as possible, you are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it.
