Mark Dain I think my biggest problem with programming right now is I don't know how to build stuff. Do I use a framework? How far does MVC go? Do I need to abstract this object? Should that use a class? Years ago it was so simple; just fucking build something. Nowadays it seems I'm so scared of not over-engineering... Perhaps I should pickup Java EE so I can get this out of my system

Nkrs There's just so much going on in programming these days that whatever you do there is a possibility that you're doing it wrong. My solution is to just throw everything in files as I go, and then refactor when I have something workable. Usually I end up writing programs that are just a bunch short functions that operate on lists or maps, which is also easy to test and understand once I come back to it months later.

🏒 Lucian Marin Read about design principles, they apply very well to programming.
