Hello hello
Another beautiful Monday! I hope you all had a lovely weekend.

If you start writing an application that somehow ends up being 10,000 or 100,000 lines of code, your earlier mistakes might come back to haunt you. An easy way to help reduce the chances of that is to learn from the mistakes of others!
