You Never Should’ve Done It…

Filed Under Thought Stuff

Ran into this quote I had scribbled on a chunk of paper:

There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all. – Peter Drucker

Personally, I don’t see to many instances of premature optimization any more; however, I do see premature abstraction all the time. Let the situation pull you to a solution, don’t push your solution on the situation.

    Premature Abstraction. Nice Term ;). That original blog has always been one of my CodeSqueeze favs.

    I have slowly but surely weaned myself out of the “abstraction for abstraction’s sake” mode. Damn you Java fundamentals for preaching ‘Code to Interface’ like it was a commandment…
