Maybe some of you already heard about, maybe just use its concepts… Since this is a very good phrase to be used, I decided to publish it!
The principle is often expressed in Latin as the lex parsimoniae (“law of parsimony” or “law of succinctness”):
entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem
which translates to:
entities should not be multiplied beyond necessity.
This is often paraphrased as:
“All things being equal, the simplest solution tends to be the right one.”
Hopefully we all will remember it when developing nice websites and software!!!
