CARD wd1-05

Delete your code

All of it

Borrowed from the wonderful coderetreat, this is the ultimate disruptive card. Having built something, delete it, and build it again.

For small projects try making three or four passes at this card. Each time deleting all code and starting again.

Not just for code

This card works equally well for concepts, wireframes, sketches, prototypes and style guides - work them up, delete them, and work them up again. By following the path again you'll notice new things.
