In 2016, I coined the term code potent to refer to writing intentional and performant code. It’s not about the language or the platform – it’s about creating responsive, well-mannered software. Another way to say it would be creating fast code that plays well with others. In case you didn’t catch it, the term code potent is used as a verb-adverb combination – like work hard or sing loud. Yes, I’m a geek.
