Booch on Software-Eng

Stas Kubasek on Learning New Technologies

I don’t skate where the puck is, I always skate where the puck is going to be
–Wayne Gretzky
the best hockey player.

How about that? That’s a great quote!On a similar note, here is my approach on learning new technologies:

I don’t learn technologies that are popular today, I learn technologies that are going to be popular and widely used in the future.
–Stas Kubasek

What does that mean? That means I always want to stay ahead of the game. I think that’s a pretty good strategy for the future. Strategy to be successful. We’ll see. :-)

Kreitzberg and Shneiderman on Programming vs Cryptography

Programming can be fun, so can cryptography; however, they should not be combined.

Programs do not acquire bugs as people acquire germs, by hanging around other buggy programs. Programmers must insert them.

Fairley on Tragedy of Software Eng

The tragedy of software engineering is not that we don’t know how to plan and conduct software projects, but that we know how and just don’t do it.
