  7. 7. cheek.insert(tongue)
  8. 8. MANIFESTO#1 we believe in a fixed set of immutable ideals over tailoring our approach to each specific situation.
  9. 9. MANIFESTO#2 we believe in concentrating on and discussing only the things that interest us over the bigger problem.
  10. 10. MANIFESTO#3 we believe in our own opinion over the opinions and experiences of others.
  11. 11. MANIFESTO#4 we believe in arbitrary black-and-white mandates over real-world scenarios with complex issues and delicate resolutions.
  12. 12. MANIFESTO#5 we believe that when our approach is hard to follow then it only shows how much more important it is.
  13. 13. MANIFESTO#6 we believe in crafting an arbitrary set of commandments over the realisation that it’s just never that simple.
  14. 14. MANIFESTO#7 we believe in trying to establish a movement to promote our view over something that will be genuinely useful.
  15. 15. MANIFESTO#8 we believe that we are better developers than those who don’t agree with us because they don’t agree with us.
  16. 16. MANIFESTO that is, we believe we’re doing the right thing. And if you don’t, you’re wrong. And if you don’t do what we do, you’re doing it wrong.
