Fefe on today's programming

Felix von Leitner (Fefe) in his latest article1 at Heise wrote a very good statement straight out from the bottom of my heart:

Programming is in reality more an optimisation problem (what is the least effort I have to invest to get the customer to buy this) than engineering design. Even worse: If you find a developer who does everything correctly, then he is not competitive on the market against all the short-term approaches of the botchers of the competition.
