Now, now. Wassercrats is notorious for saying something perfectly sensible in the shortest possible terms. Unfortunately, in English, this means ambiguity. Let's add just a little for tolerances:

I wouldn't agonize over studying and mastering all those processes and methodologies. While they might be useful, they also might not, and they aren't a pre-requisite to writing good code.

I think that's a little closer to his original intent. People can get paralysis from worrying too much about coding in the nebulous Right Way just as easily as they get crap code from Slamming Out Code Without Thinking(R)*.

On the other hand, to quote D.A.R.Y.L., "All knowledge is learning and therefore, good." It's probably worth perusing some of those methodologies, just to see if someone happened to strike gold. Just don't count on it. :-)

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
