 Dave Thomas and Code Generation

CodeGeneration.net interviews Dave Thomas, of The Pragmatic Programmers, LLC.

"But this isn't really what I'd call code generation. I view code generation as a process of layering abstractions into my work. For this purpose, code generation is invaluable. The trick is to use in correctly. You need to be able to differentiate between the primary work product and the derived artifacts. The artifacts can smell to high heaven: that doesn't matter, because you'll never have to maintain them. The important thing is that the primary work product is clean."
