The reason that we have so much bad code is we have too many computer scientists

A good scientist is a person with original ideas. A good engineer is a person who makes a design that works with as few original ideas as possible. There are no prima donnas in engineering.

Freeman Dyson

Programming isn’t science; there are no points for difficulty or being original just for the sake of it.
