Writing Code Is Stupid

Ian Wij:

Why bother with objects and components at all? The purpose of objects is to provide encapsulation and implemention reuse. With code generation, we reuse the requirement or design and not the code. It doesn’t matter if code gets duplicated and spread about because a human won’t be maintaining it. Objects and components are a human artefact for versioning and managing work among developers. They exist to help us humans deal with software complexity. Let’s use computers to deal with software complexity instead.
