hack or think

October 15, 2008

My friend tells me today:

“Szczepan, if I have a choice: to hack it in 5 minutes or to think hard about it for 3 hours… I hack”

I didn’t have to wonder too long what I would choose. Obviously it’s thinking about it for 3 hours.

Who is better developer then?


You need both in your team. Smarter people wrote that hundred times before me but hear it again. It’s the variety of characters and opinions what sparks creativity. You might think about it next time you set up a team.
