Grab yourself an alibi - PHPDay 2013

Download to read offline

A software development team may face many problems, many problems each week, each day, hour by hour. Developers blame on managers. Managers blame on coders. Both blame on UX designers. UX designers blame on customers. Customers blame on account managers. Account managers on agile coaches. Agile coaches on DBAs. DBAs on human resources and all of them blame on final users.

OK, enough of that: best players are those who don’t wait for things to be perfect in order to succeed. Those who can cope with the absence of perfection are those who can truly make things better.

  8. 8. “The Greeks were so committed to ideas as supernatural forces that they created an entire group of goddesses (not one but nine) to represent creative power; the opening lines of both The Iliad and The Odyssey begin with calls to them.These nine goddesses, or muses, were the recipients of prayers from writers, engineers, and musicians. Even the great minds of the time, like Socrates and Plato, built shrines and visited temples dedicated to their particular muse (or muses, for those who hedged their bets). Right now, under our very secular noses, we honor these beliefs in our language, as the etymology of words like museum ("place of the muses") and music ("art of the muses") come from the Greek heritage of ideas as superhuman forces.” -- S. Berkun,The Myths of Innovation
