Why Incremental Development is Useful

June 4, 2006 — Posted by Al Shalloway

Had an insight on why incremental programming is useful that I thought I'd share. We use a routine on our web-site to display our available courses and seminars. We have made it so one routine can give the information needed following the no redundancy rule.We were looking to add a new feature to this that would do a different kind of filtering than we currently do. My tendancy is to always do the minimum amount of functionality needed (Ya Ain't Gonna Need It). But I'll admit, my mind wondered - what happens when this is extended - that is, we need a more sophisticated rule?

Only Degrade Your Code Intentionally

I know this sounds like a funny thing to say - only make your code worse when you mean to. But think about the alternative - make your code worse without meaning to!

People and Process

June 2, 2006 — Posted by Al Shalloway

In making my starting entry on our Lean Software Development blog, I considered - "what should I blog about?" I figured, maybe a discussion about why I liked Lean so much might be appropriate.My beginnings with Lean actually go back to the 80s when I studied Edwards Deming. I found some of his ideas somewhat counter-intuitive then. However, the validity of his work had already been established in Japan. I have learned that when my models do not reflect reality, I have to change my models.
