I'm just saying that if you have it in your head most code is going to be rewritten every 2 years, it's understandable if you don't bother making things easy to work on, and just hack it together.

An argument that "eh, most code is rewritten anyway, who cares" is what I'm reacting to, and have seen countless times myself.

But I don't want to say there is never a time someone will say, "this code is going away, don't spend too much time fixing it now" and it's really really good advise.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
