Tim Berners-Lee: Simple things make firm foundations

2021-09-07 #web #modularity #timbernerslee

So we should always be looking to make a clean system with an interface ready to be used by a system which hasn’t yet been invented.

Clean interfaces give you invariants, which developers use as foundations of the next layer. Messy interfaces introduce complexity which we may later regret.
