  • The choice that is being described I believe is the choice between code that is easy to modify, and code that is transparent to someone who is new to the code base. For code to be easy to modify it must also be easy for the modifier to understand. However it need not be easy for an uninitiated programmer to figure out.

    As an example, my first experience of functional techniques lead to 20 minutes of head scratching until I finally found the section of code that did the work, and figured out how it worked.
