Things I never, ever, want to hear. Ever.
- In theory,… No, I don’t want to know what you think the code does, I want to know that it actually does—especially if you’re the one that wrote the code. If you haven’t verified, validated by actually testing stuff in a systematic manner, you have failed. Have you validated the functions with stringent unit testing? No? then get out of my face and go write code to test your code. Validate your hypotheses. Always.
