What is Code Disease?
A code disease is a pervasive property of a code base that harms or destroys basic ease of software development and maintenance. Often propagating problems up to the business execution and strategic levels, code diseases are costly and risk-inducing. As its strong name indicates, a code disease is very serious and potentially threatening, with its first victims the morale and sanity of the developers who live with it daily, and its final victims the customers who are punished for relying on your business’s affected systems.

Note that there was another thread here discussing an earlier version of the paper, but due to the heat generated by problems in the earlier version, as well as a defect in the synopsis, I decided to post in a new thread. The old thread is here - http://lambda-the-ultimate.org/node/4926
