Discussion on: 6 ways minimalism can help you write clean code

I love the 3-rd point. A while ago we had to deliver to a client a minimal part of the product, which was rewritten from 0. The first thing, that our architect told us, was "Don't try to guess what will be the next requirement. Just cover the current ones". Working in a software company can be a dynamic job and no one knows what will be the next big thing, that the client would have interest in.

Thanks for stopping by, Shymi!

Completely agree. It's hard enough to complete the required work on time, it'll be even harder if we keep adding requirements ourselves! 😅
Sometimes we think that the extra-work will be appreciated by the client, but it usually leads to incomplete features that give the impression of instability.
