Subject: programmers are managers of complexity

As the model needs to be able to do more and harder things, the objects and the rules will start to:

Increase in number
Remember more data
Gain more and more corner cases

This gradual accretion of nuance and behavior is called “complexity.”


Ultimately, a programmer’s job is less to actually write code, and more to manage complexity.
