I downloaded from this link 'cause I'll be travelling on public transport a bit later this month and I'll add it onto my tablet.
While I have the link handy,

No Promises, but the concept interests me, so . . .

Thanks Kerry, that sounds really interesting, too bad my English isn't good enough for me to be sure I understand everything correctly.

Thanks for sharing :-)
The conclusion is justified that the initialization of the development of critical subsystem optimizes the probability of success to the development of the technical behavior over a given period.

When reading these two observations, my first reaction was , well, duh !

In hindsight that ( my thought ) comment was a little sort sighted.


Quote
When we start off, our software systems are small and easy to maintain. But they all
grow, in time. The average software system becomes large enough that no human being
could hope to hold all of its code in their mind at once. This isnít good or bad, itís just
a fact. Effective software systems are, as a whole, inherently complex. The only hope
we have for working with these systems is to keep the individual pieces simple, so that
when we look at those pieces, we can comprehend them. Programming, in essence,
must become the act of reducing complexity to simplicity.

< . . . . >

A good programmer should do everything in his power to make what he
writes simple for other programmers to use and comprehend.



Perhaps the 'obvious' stuff needs to be concentrated on untill it becomes ingrained in everything we do . . . . and learnt like a nursery rhyme when we were kids.
