About removing code

I'm in the business of deleting code, not just writing it.

In a world cluttered with complex solutions, my approach revolves around eliminating what we call “accidental complexity.” It’s about keeping things straightforward.

When the underlying concepts are neatly modularized, the resulting code is not only simple and clear but also inherently concise, expressive, and precise. This philosophy transcends beyond just writing; it’s about refining and streamlining.

When you engage with my services, expect to witness your codebase shrinking rather than expanding. The result? Significantly less time spent on maintenance, debugging, or even integrating new features. It’s about creating a breathable, manageable codebase.

For a previous client, I took down a process that would involve person at half-time for two weeks long into a one-click button taking only an hour to run. The codebase also shrunk from 60,000 lines of code to less than 5,000.

This methodology doesn’t just apply to code; it mirrors an essential business philosophy. In an era where companies are inundated with complexities, the ability to distill processes and strategies into their simplest, most efficient forms is not just valuable – it’s essential.

Let’s simplify your digital world, one line of code at a time.
