Doing It Wrong

Tim Bray, Ongoing, Jan 05, 2010

I think Bray's criticisms of enterprise software development are accurate. And I think he highlights where the future lies: "the winning mix includes dynamic languages and Web frameworks and TDD and REST and Open Source and NoSQL at varying levels of relative importance... [and] the culture: iterative development, continuous refactoring, ubiquitous unit testing, starting small, gathering user experience before it seems reasonable."
