Big Macs vs. The Naked Chef - Joel on Software

by night.kame

The trouble is that the "training" doesn't really produce consistent results, so Youthful Programmer starts creating rules and procedures that are meant to make more consistent results. Over the years, the rule book grows and grows. Soon it's a six-volume manual called The Methodology.

After a few dozen years, Youthful Programmer is now a Huge Incompetent IT Consultant with a capital-M-methodology and a lot of people who blindly obey the Methodology, even when it doesn't seem to be working, because they have no bloody idea whatsoever what else to do, and they're not really talented programmers -- they're just well-meaning Poli Sci majors who attended the six-week course.

Joel Spolsky écrivait cela il y a plus de dix ans. Aujourd'hui, les méthodologies ne sont plus sur la programmation. De la même manière qu'UML2 est passé au niveau meta-meta, les Méthodologies sont désormais à propos des méthodologies. Le pire étant que les déçu de l'Agile qui s'est Méthodologisée sont aussi en train de reconstruire une nouvelle méthodologie, para-Agile.
