KISS (Keep It Short and Simple)
Complex tasks usually has more simple solutions and even really sophisticated problem is nothing more than combination of simple tasks. I always try to optimise every task on the stage of formalization. I start to code only when the point of subject is exposed and all kinds of useless rituals can be avoided at all. You know, often a lot of acts during the working process are just manipulations imposed by putative patterns. Exactely this reason allows us to reduce a lot of programmatic code or even exclude millions of lines of it without any harm to program logic! From the start of our mutual work, I try to formalise all tasks ahead us in the simple and clear form and I am not tend to complicate already not so simple reality
KISS is an acronym for "Keep it simple, stupid" as a design principle noted by the U.S. Navy in 1960. The KISS principle states that most systems work best if they are kept simple rather than made complicated; therefore simplicity should be a key goal in design and unnecessary complexity should be avoided. The phrase has been associated with aircraft engineer Kelly Johnson (1910–1990). The term "KISS principle" was in popular use by 1970. Variations on the phrase include "Keep it Simple, Silly", "keep it short and simple", "keep it simple and straightforward" and "keep it small and simple"
