Specialization is for Insects
I’ve become a regular reader of Oren Eini’s blog, “Ayende @ Rahien.” Although I don’t toil in the same developer space as Oren, I find that his introspective illustrations of methodology and technique yield little diamonds every day. His attention to testing is heart-warming.
Today, in a theme-titled post, there is this great observation:
I think it is more than that. We must stop Surprising the User (including the Developer special-case), for all of the same reasons. It seems to me that plugging-up the abstractions, and knowing how to have them fail appropriately when fail they must, is a perfect agenda for conquering the complexity that we have unleashed on the world in the name of mastering complexity.
There’s a lot more in Oren’s post and I recommend that you digest all of it (and then subscribe to his RSS feed).
