Few words about complexity …

Firstly I want to start with quote (source):

The real skill is in solving a complicated solution simply, not complicating a simple problem

This simple sentence describes well, the most important skill in computer science I believe.

The another interesting things about the complexity, are Jens Coldewey Complexity Boosters:

  • distribution
  • explicit multithreading
  • paradigm chasms (such as object / relational)
  • multiplatform development
  • extreme performance requirements (such as more than 100 transactions per second).

Martin Fowler describes them well in following way:

” All of these carry a high cost. Certainly there are times when you have to do it, but never forget that each one carries a charge both in development and in on-going maintenance.”

Complexity best practices – nothing more nothing less.
