The best programmers typically use the fewest lines of code?

To answer this question, we have to start off with the definition of ‘Good code’.

Good code:

  • Is clear, efficient, easy to maintain, and easy to read
  • Follows a clear, logical sequence of operations, and relies on no invisible or external machinery
  • Carefully checks to ensure that inputs follow documented specification
  • Handles external error cases gracefully
  • Scales well under load
  • Is well-documented, and the documentation accurately reflects the code and is maintained with it
  • Is well-tested, with clear links between tests and the specific actions of the code being tested

You’ll note that none of these things incorporate concision as a first-order requirement.  All other things being equal, tight code is preferable, but this list should be achieved first.

Good programmers write their programs with a good architecture. Bad programmers write complex architecture hard to understand and maintain. And as a result – end up writing far more code, to fit in with the complex architecture of the program.

There – the aim is not to reduce the lines of good code as such. But to make it easier to read and more maintainable, and easier to write. Which often has the result of reducing the total lines of code.

As an example from my own code – just an example of a way that my code has improved – some time back I found a way to write a single line of code which

  • Adds a user variable (e.g. check state or the value of a parameter in the user interface) to the .ini file so that it is persistent when the user exits the program and starts it up again
  • Displays that value to the user
  • Adds that value to global undo for the program
  • Records that variable as associated with a particular window or windows – so the user can save all the values for any individual window in the program
  • Associates its id with tool tip extra help – which I can then edit within the program – several pages if necessary of extra help telling the user how to use that control and what it does.
  • Doing this with just one line of code immediately eliminated many potential bugs that I’d had before. Now they can never arise again with new code. This replaced what previously were many lines of codes that had to be entered in many parts of the program each time I added a new user visible variable to it.

 

Nothing as effective as actually trying it out to find out if the architecture works. Of course – your mileage may vary. And I’m a sole developer so can just do that at any time if I want to. Do it very rarely, perhaps every few years – but there’ve been a few times I’ve changed the architecture and been so glad I did it – such as for instance that one line method of adding user variables to the program – one of the best programming decisions I made I think :).

But back to examples to show that this process of reducing the lines of code can be taken too far. There are competitions to make surprisingly tiny programs to achieve a particular task, with the size usually measured usually in terms of the total characters in the program, but they often have surprisingly few lines of code as well.

Often deliberately obfuscated as part of the competition, but the very act of making it as short as possible (e.g. using single letter variable names wherever possible and using the C capability to redefine things with shorter names e.g. single characters for standard functions etc) makes it hard to follow what it does.

In my experience, GOOD CODE is about being conventional for readability and maintenance. This means the best code is the shortest it can be without sacrificing clarity. This approach allows the most flexibility.

  • When you need to adjust it, it’s the easiest.
  • When you need to read about the algorithm, it’s the simplest to recognize and look up.
  • When you need to debug it, it has the smallest hiding spaces for bugs.
  • When you need to break it apart and refactor it, it is already concentrated as much as it could be instead of sprawling.

Therefore, the best programmers do not typically use the fewest lines of code. Instead, they write the code in a fashion appropriate for its intended use.

  • High-speed of execution. In certain cases this will be the shortest source code, but it will be arrived at by carefully choosing which intrinsic functions to use, order of comparisons, and many other things you wish an optimizer could take care of correctly for you. The examples I’ve seen were painful to maintain and debug.
  • High speed of development. For example, prototype code to demonstrate a concept or refine an algorithm. This code tends to be concise, ‘happy case’ code. It’s also usually modular in ways the developer expects to extend or experiment with.
  • Commercial production. If the programmer is producing code which is expected to be long-lived, and which must be robust to corner cases, it’s typically written to be clear, maintainable, and bullet-proof. Code I wrote for research in five lines might require 200 lines to write in a manner appropriate to ship in Windows.

5 Ways To Force Users To Leave Your Website
(and never come back)

You might think I’m trying to be extremely sarcastic, but you could be the one who falls inclined to those scenarios without you even acknowledging it.

Let me share with you some best practices to exclude new users from your website’s next visits.

key to succeed
1. Hide The Content Well

Users seek content. However, you don’t need to maximize your content exposure. You’re capable of hiding your contents not only from your visitors but also from the search engine. How so? Just place your main content, main topic tabs, most important information, etc. out of reach.
visible-content-defined

Selling cat food? Hide “Cats” away.

So both User & Googlebot misunderstand what your website is all about.

 

Some other ways to isolate your contents are disabling zooming and filling up the page with fixed-positioned elements. Try adding a big online chat window or newsletter subscription ad to cover the menu or sidebar.

 

2. Be UI Mobile-Unhandy

Are the CTA and link buttons large enough?

Are complex UI elements such as carousels implemented properly on any device?

Do you enable text selection on your web pages?

Is navigation easy to be found wherever possible, like these?

niceUI

Examples of good UI/UX

Say NO to every question in the above checklist and you’ll gain an unhandy UI to your needs.

 

3. Prevent Users From Saying Hi

If you allow users to browse through your pages and do nothing more, then don’t use any instant messaging plugin or live chat box on your website. I’ll bet the poor user is clueless in getting in touch with you.

There are plenty of premium live chat and instant messaging plugins, including Facebook Messenger for WordPress, Messenger for PHP, even with BOT, which works perfectly. But you don’t need it anyway.

Stay away from IM. Why do we have to be seen and to be heard?

 

4. Don’t Make Phone Numbers Tappable

Another good thing to do is to display your phone number as text so that the users have to go all the way from select, copy, go to Calls screen, and paste it. By this way, you can make the users know “Nothing worth having comes easy.”

Also for phone numbers, international numbers need the country code. Some websites targeting only a specific geographical area find it OK to leave merely the phone number. Besides, some other websites assume that the users are the one who should know where the website owner locates.

Well, just in case that’s not what you’re headed for, here is your span tag and Javascript to apply:

Phone: <span class="phone-number">123456789</span>

Using jQuery and the isMobile detection library, we’ll replace the element with a phone-number class and a link:

if(isMobile.phone) {
  $('.phone-number').each(function() {
    $(this).replaceWith(
      $('<a href="tel:' + this.innerHTML + '">' + this.innerHTML + '</a>')
    );
  });
}

It looks like this on smartphones:

Phone: <a href="tel:123456789" class="phone-number">123456789</a>

5. Let Go Of Your Visitors

To make sure nothing can entice your visitors to leave any contact details or any traces, avoid using contact forms of all kinds.

Although Contact Form 7 Database can help save your user and their queries to database, or Contact form 7 Multi step help decrease your form abandonment form, just do not ever try using it.

Ignore these useful Contact Form 7 add-ons no matter it’s Database for Contact form 7 or Multi-Step for Contact form 7.

 

Wrap-up

Now that you master all those 5 tips, you can rest assured that the website is shown to the visitors exactly as below:
