Interview with Steve McConnell

In this interview with Steve McConnell he shares some sobering thoughts on software development. I found item 3 of particular interest, there he talks about recurring problems in software development (for the last decades):
  • Code and fix practice
  • How much design up-front should be done
  • Trying to anticipate future functionality
  • Silver bullets to increase productivity (tooling e.g.)
  • Uninformed use of software development practices
