What is the most important thing that ‘Good’ software has and ‘Bad’ software lacks?


1 reply

The most important thing in the good software is maintainability. A good software not only should be maintainable but should also rely on rapid development and iteration without losing reliability. Should also be easy to modify and extend and enabling fast delivery of features and updates. About its design, it should use clear structures, well-documented code, and should rely on automated testing for seamless updates and modifications while ensuring reliability and performance. Ultimately, it will empower teams to deliver value to users faster and more efficiently.

On the other side, bad software lacks all these attributes, leading to slower development, increased technical debt, and a higher probability of bugs.
