i check the generation. it gets checked once. if you're checking generated code more than cursorily after that you're duplicating effort, and in this case that's a huge time waster.

i've been coding for about 32 years, professionally i did for about 20. In that time I've generated a lot of code.

In fact, I don't think I've ever worked on a 3-tier app I didn't have control over that didn't use at least 15% of the middleware code being generated, if not more. At companies like Acrosonic it was a lot more, because we didn't have very many devs, and we had a lot of diverse clients with diverse needs.

If you want to build "vertical applications" for small businesses for example, generated code is your way to do so profitably.

And if you want to architect enterprise apps, generated code is often going to be a part of it, at least if you're dealing with anything redundant.


Edit: I should add that this is going to probably be an intractable philosophical difference between you and I, and I am okay to agree to disagree.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
