The struggle for
         standards



Chris Heilmann, Coder’s Saturday, Montreal, March 2008
Most high-quality development
     is about standards.
If you hire a plumber, he’ll use
pipes, fittings and screws that
   are following an industry
            standard.
... if not, you have caught a
cowboy that will hurt your
    house and your wallet.
Plumbers and other handymen
 are people we can learn from.
Imagine plumbers would have to
   work like web developers.
“We want some plumbing done,
you know the sort other houses
           have.”
“Don’t make it too expensive
though, so it’d be nice if you can
re-use this rusty old leaky bit of
           pipe here.”
