Software Engineering

Programming is easy, engineering large projects that can be maintained is hard.

Maintainable systems have loose coupling. A system is said to be loosely coupled if its components have limited dependence on one another. This is also referred to as "modularity."

Maintainable systems are testable. The modules in a testable system can be tested in isolation from one another.

In a typical project, the largest amount of time is spent in the maintenance phase.

Code is easier to write than to read, even by your future self.

So do "future people" a favor, design your projects with care.
