YAGNI and Feature hunger meme

When a colleague sees a functionality but YAGNI.

I recently tried to stop some colleagues from adding a feature that the client didn’t request.

This feature was also adding a certain amount of complexity through a number of different classes.

When common sense didn’t work I tried to use YAGNI to get my point across.

I couldn’t convince them but it helped me seem like I knew what I was talking about and I wasn’t just being lazy.

This meme is part of the “YAGNI” episode from the Clean Code course.
