comment What are the worst false economies in software development?
@MetalMikester, that's why I put a "when" clause; I'm talking about cases when free alternatives are better, and there are a lot of such cases.

comment What are the worst false economies in software development?
i.e. companies that stick with Java and C# and are too afraid to touch python or ruby because they're not "industry standard", which reminds me of: paulgraham.com/avg.html

comment What does it mean to write “good code”?
@rmx, Doing the job well is not an excuse for writing horrible code. Anyone can write spaghetti code that does the job, but not anyone can write code that does the job AND at the same time is clean and readable.

comment What does it mean to write “good code”?
"a good coder writes code that looks like it was easy and straightforward to do." << EXACTLY! I think this is because people usually think a good coder is someone who can write very "clever" hacks. If the code is clean and not overly "clever", it must be easy, right?

comment Is Object Oriented Programming a solution to complexity?
No, this is a common misconception about OOP. You're not supposed to model your program based on real life objects. There's no such thing as a BufferReader in real life.
