compiling code, computer programmer, computer programmers, computer programming, errors, Java, software development, warnings
There have been times when, working on other people’s code, one of the first things that pops up is that their code generates thousands of warnings. I’m not exaggerating the number; there have been at least two times I can recall where someone’s code set generated that many warnings. And both times, the code set wasn’t all that large (only tens of thousands of lines).
Which leads us to Rule #3: Don’t ignore warnings!
