"It's very simple: you cannot be agile if your code sucks. It's as simple as that."
"Who here can write wonderful code? Raise your hand if your can. Two people? You're lying.
I'll tell you: I write code that sucks.
You don't want to look at the code I wrote. You'll say, 'Really? This is your code?' But you know what I'm really good at? I'm extremely good at finding fault with your
code. So I realized: why should I waste my time writing good code, when I can write some crappy code real quick, I can give it to him, and while he tells me how my code sucks, I can look at his
code and say how his code sucks, end of the day we all have good code."
