in general, thoughts

Occam’s razor

 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!!!
