Definitely agreed. I believe the point that this mnemonic attempts to get across is not "don't make it right/fast", but rather to shift ones priority focus to getting a working solution first. Then, by all means, make certain that the program is correct, and then please, oh please, make sure it does not run in exponential time.

Very well said. The quoted version alone just makes me think of all the code where people stopped after the "make it work" phase. 😂😭
