sounds like you worked extra hard and your code will allow me to work faster. ( and I would expect it not to fail )


Your assessment of the phrases is correct, and IMHO the one quoted is the best to use.

@kurzer
Normally not only code needs to be delivered, but also documentation etc.

Therefore the following is more... [german] allumfassend [/german] :

"Deliverables exceed expectation"

My $0.02

As a native English speaker, may I throw a spanner in the works?

In my view, the word "code" should not be used. It's not the same as "form" or "design" yet it is the design and form that your customers are interested in. If the product was a car, you might be interested in it's shape, it's quality, it's performance, but you would be less interested in how the factory made it.

Quality - Reliability - Usability

Try something with those words in (or just those words?).

Okay, I'm reading this while drunk, and I think the native English phrase you're looking for would be:

"Programmed by a developer who dogfoods his work."

What the heck, I hear you ask? Well, it's an actual phrase for people who stand by their work:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eating_your_own_dog_food

https://www.urbandictionary.com/define. ... dogfood%29

For example, I dogfood my own products. :)
