“will ever ship code that generates a single error” - I know you are lying here.

Hi Ørjan, thanks for the comment. Lets just hope you’re not that blunt in real life.


My response, and the section of the article that it’s discussing, is purely talking about compiler/lint/transcompiler etc. errors and warnings. There is no expectation of zero runtime issues (or more commonly referred to as bugs) and you’re right, pretty sure I’ve never shipped anything with zero unknown bugs.

Known bugs sometimes (if we’re lucky) but unknown, I completely agree, no chance.
