Bad Programmer Destroys Wealth

After code review, I understood why people say bad programmers destroy wealth. Their productivity is less than 0, which means they are creating bugs and drag the team to fix it. I consistently saw really bad and buggy code here and there, by one programmer who is not at our company. But the code there is guaranteed to be bad, and buggy. Interestingly, bad programmers are very productive if you measure by lines of code they created. So identify them! Early!

    一个低效率的程序员确实不会创造任何价值,同时还在消耗团队其他人的付出,Bug和不易读的代码,等等,都会让其他的人受到伤害

    True. Well, what is more annoying is that they may affect other programmers too. Worst of all, the project might be delayed because of bugs.
