I was surprised and flattered today when my tech lead casually mentioned that I'm "the only developer he knows that writes bug-free code."
I find the concept of zero-defect code quite interesting and suggested that if it is true that I write defect-free code, perhaps I plan to do so from the get go. I stuttered on about hanging up "DO GOOD WORK" signs around the office and how I think it is possible to write defect-free code if you try.
I don't consider myself a slow coder and I believe strongly that quality doesn't cost money; I am, however, calculated and organised. I also take the time to step through my code and review it a few days or weeks after writing it.
