Discussion on: The Demise of Reuse

I feel the tweet by is misleading. It says "A rant about the false promises of reuse." I agree reuse can be hard, especially with different teams using and changing the same code. But in general reuse is a fantastic thing. Think of the opensource libraries you use. How much effort would it take to recreate something like log4j? Probably thousands of teams use this library yet they have no real issues.

The benefits of reuse often far outway the maintenance cost in my experience.
