You Are Not Ruthless Enough
25 Feb 2012
In the next release a new feature will be impossible to implement because class A has intimate, incestuous, biblical knowledge about class B. It seemed to work but the child of this relationship is going to cause you problems for the rest of its life even if you manage to separate the star-crossed classes and send them back to their families.
Here’s the thing: you are not ruthless enough.
Do it right the first time or you’ll have a “Giger-esque state-driven nightmare”.
