In the first year of my professional IT job, I think to
protect the code from destructive changes.
Then I start to apply a "light" XP process on my work and
I embrace the change, at least in my mind, because the
project I worked was not XP-oriented.
Now my project are planned for change: the code I wrote
*should be reviewed* in the next future!
This vision improved my code: errors are less then
expected, even if now I take less care when writing the
"single" code line, and plan often releases.
The only think to do is to stake outs, for example via
class comment, where the code can be broken and when should
