I was asked to help a fellow in-house developer a couple of days ago. He was tasked with a pretty big job. He is not a full-time coder so he told me how he’d do it. He came up with 8000 lines of very repetitive code he plan to write. I simply had 2 hours and said ‘let’s begin here…’ and off I went teaching him about variables, loops, objects and all his code melted to about 35 lines of code that worked perfectly. Just wanted to share a rare moment of success.
