Tim Bray: Doing IT WrongThe community of developers whose work you see on the Web, whoprobably don’t know what ADO or UML or JPA even stand for,deploy better systems at less cost in less time at lower risk than wesee in the Enterprise.Obviously, the technology matters. This isn’t the place for details, butapparently the winning mix includes dynamic languages and Webframeworks and TDD and REST and Open Source and NoSQL atvarying levels of relative importance.More important is the culture: iterative development, continuousrefactoring, ubiquitous unit testing, starting small, gathering userexperience before it seems reasonable. All of which, to be fair, Isuppose had its roots in last decade’s Extreme and Agile movements.
