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.


With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority". I'm with torvalds on this
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice. Agile (and TDD) debunked
