I stumbled across this today and it rings very true.
Importance of reuse
Code reuse has been a topic that seems to keep coming up in my work over and over again. Its probably because I keep seeing repeated code that doesn’t need to be repeated. Its important to realize that the best way to make code reusable is by repeating yourself first and then refactoring. Had I tried to do it the other way around I would have probably solved the wrong problem.
