You are a programmer. That means you are under tremendous pressure to go fast. There are deadlines to meet. There are bugs to fix before the big demo. There are production schedules to keep. And your job depends on how fast you go and how reliably you keep your schedules. And that means you have to cut corners, compromise, and be quick and dirty.
You heard me. Baloney! There's no such thing as quick and dirty in software. Dirty means slow. Dirty means death.
