Programmer Anarchy

I came across this refreshing ‘Post Agile Process’ video which revitalizes my earlier email on Test is Dead.

Here are some key takeaways for me out of this talk:

  • No need for testing infrastructure.
    (This is a culture shift and a revolutionary way to solve a lot of problems existing in the software world)

  • Break software into smaller more independent pieces.

  • Experimentation drives Innovation. (Move fast break things)

  • 2 key qualities for surviving in the ‘Modern Developer’ role:
    • Self-Leaner
    • Likes to Deliver (“Perfect” is the enemy of “Good Enough”)

  • At times, think of Software development as Manufacturing rather than Engineering.
    (Being a geek, it was a bit mind boggling for me to hear this first but I get the point)

What are your thoughts ?
