On Duct Tape Programmers

To: Duct tape programmers

Enjoy, your skin-of-your teeth deliveries, your fingers-crossed deployments, your days lost fire fighting the same issues over and over again. Have fun, wading through incomprehensible spaghetti code, and cut 'n' pasting your "one off" solutions all the shop. Smile sweetly as you work late into the night figuring out the latest screw up.

By all means, cling onto you outdated methods like its still 1988. But please, allow me to work the way I want to work. And, do me a favour, stay outta my codebase.
