Behind the code How to have fun & create useless stuff

After hours stuff

Why is that?

When was the last time you created something useless?

Keep it simple ”Simplicity should be a key goal in design and unnecessary complexity should be avoided”

Elegant stealing ”Good artists copy, great artists steal”

Failing forward ”Having success rarely teaches you anything”

Quantity grows quality ”Whatever you're seeking, it will never come as expected”

It should be fun Keep it simple Elegant stealing Failing forward Quantity grows quality

Thank you @gwenvanhee
