How important is code quality vs. getting things done?

=>Ask an expert

· workplace

Everyone has an opinion, but it is not necessarily a valuable opinion.

Is your opinion the answer?
Would you casually express your opinion to your pilot on how best to land an airplane in which you are currently a passenger?
A pilot is a recognized expert in his field.
The pilot may consider your opinion as non-valuable.
But in our field of software development, are there any experts?
I think so: experts do exist in our industry.
But it can be hard to discern them.
Companies we work for cannot determine experts vs. non-experts.
What is the appropriate balance between code quality and getting things done?
My answer is this: find an expert, have them assess your situation, and do what they say.
