Essential ComplexityEssential complexity is the minimum complexity that will completely solve a problem. Code is often many times bigger than its essentially complexity.
Lines of CodeIt is often possible to improve code and make it faster by reworking convoluted solutions that are overly complex. Generally speaking, an advanced coder will solve the same problem with far less code than a mediocre coder. This may imply that measuring programmer productivity by lines of code is misguided. A highly productive week can result in less code as opposed to more.
