in thread Nobody Expects the Agile Imposition (Part VIII): Software Craftsmanship

Welcome to the future.

That's what they said about SSADM back in the '80s. I rejected that back then; and I was right. Who's heard of it now?

Different methodology; same goals. The reduction of the Art of Programming to a paint-by-numbers process with interchangeable machine parts. (Programmers)

If you can reduce your programmer rolls to lots of Lil'boxes all made out of Ticky-Tacky then they can be managed as numbers in a spreadsheet.

No stars; commoditised salaries; zero-hours contracts. An out-sourceable resource, purchased on a world-wide spot market at the cheapest price.

Management has been falling for the hype for decades; and each new generation of programmers are all too ready to sign up with relish.

It may be your tomorrow; but its not mine. I did my time. Good luck.
