Procedural Spaghetti

It is tempting for programmers who don’t understand design patterns or all the features available for their language of choice to write all their code procedurally. Do this, then this, then this, for every operation, regardless of how much commonality they share. The only reason this works at any scale is because some more thoughtful programmer spent the time and effort to build a framework that creates scopes for your code to live and which keeps your spaghetti from getting all tangled. Please don’t let the convenience of working within a framework keep you from writing more maintainable code yourself.
