The code that does not have to be written

Do you know which code is best? It’s the one that does not have to be written at all!

As developers we often solve non-trivial problems. We have to analyze and understand each important aspect of a problem. Then we have to “convert” the result of such analysis into code. This code has to meet all the requirements. It has to be understandable. To achieve this, we talk about design and structure of the code and sometimes challenge it to make it better. And after a while we are there, with a clear picture in our heads. Now the funny part begins, now’s the time for coding!
