in thread Programming *is* much more than "just writing code".

Well, green field projects usually enter maintenance(ish) mode fairly quickly, usually somewhere between three and six months in.

This isn't a bad thing, but rather a fact of life and so should be embraced and dealt with.

If they don't take on a more maintenance kind of style, it is because of a lack of one or more of:

  • Short iterations (shorter than a month)
  • Proper testing (and the resulting lack of code quality feedback)
  • Deployment, or at least decent show-and-tell sessions with the stakeholders (and the resulting lack of design and requirements quality feedback)


  • Comment on Re^2: Programming *is* much more than "just writing code".
