We need code. Lots of code.

Code Connectivity

Thought of the moment.

There are levels of interconnectedness…
Level 1 — basic — compiler knows they are the same. Command-click or F12 finds it…
Level 2 — intermediate — strings match. grep -r can find it…
Level 3 — majikal — you have to know something about some rules for construction…
Level 4 — arcane — you just have to know.

It’s nice to hover around Level 1 or Level 2.
If you’re in Level 3 or Level 4, maintenance is… challenging. But can be slightly mitigated if you can create a unit test or build step that, somehow, confirms that everything is lining up.

oh, i dont know. what do you think?
