Pensar primero

Joe Armstrong, en una lista de correo:

The turn round time for a program was three weeks

  • week 1 – write code on paper forms – send to computer center to be turned into punched cards
  • week 2 – review punched cards, if ok send to machine
  • week 3 – results

The compiler helpfully stopped at the first syntax error which got you back to week 1 – so if you had say ten errors in your program it would take 30 weeks to get it running.

This is a pretty good environment – teaches you not to make mistakes and to think first.

El mail entero vale la pena.
