Code is Temporary

Nick Bradbury:

Your code isn’t important: what matters are the ideas your code brings to life. Shitty code that makes a point is better than perfect code that proves nothing.

I agree that ideas brought to life by code are more important than the code itself. However, shitty code that makes a point is just aiming low. Developers should always strive to do their code right. Code done right allows ideas to scale and makes them robust.
