About Code Simplicity

There’s just too much complex stuff in the world. Complex stuff can’t be used, and it breaks too easily.

Complexity is stupid. Simplicity is smart.

Code Simplicity focuses on the idea of simplicity: simple things, simple thoughts, and simple ideas that can make the world of computing a better place.
