in reply to Any interesting philosophy of programming articles to recommend?

Some items off the cuff:

Update: There is a new book out that should be very interesting reading: "Software Fundamentals. Collected Papers by David L. Parnas". A recommendation in the ACM journal compared it to "The Mythical Man Month" in terms of importance.

    Judging from the first two, I will enjoy Alistair Cockburn's papers. It will take me a while to get through that. :-)

    I should also note that on my home node there are quite a few random links. People who are looking through the various links in this thread might also like to follow some of them.

    And a random exercise for the brave that just came up in chatter. Keep a log of bugs you discover in your own code, with notes about what you think caused the bug. Review that log periodically. If you feel truly brave, have someone you respect review said log with you. Excellent, if painful, way to learn what you personally need work on.
