Programming Progress

“Measuring programming progress by lines of code is like measuring aircraft building progress by weight.” – Bill Gates
I have that quote on my instant messenger. I found out Friday that someone had saw and used it. Its good that someone found it useful. It’s a very valid point to make that lines of code isn’t an accurate measure of programming progress nor complexity. As a place to start, people looking for better methods might like Feature-driven development with a meaningful estimating system like PERT, CPM, or other system.
