How long is "new" new anyway


1 min read

Quick hint and a reminder for myself:

In programming, try not to prefix things with "new".

"New" usually doesn't stay new for very long :). It becomes especially problematic when you introduce the new stuff for the 2nd time. At that point, you have a choice of living with the OLD stuff prefixed with a "new" word and figuring out how to name the new new stuff or having to refactor a bunch of names just to avoid the confusion.

End of story. Bye, bye ๐Ÿ™ƒ
