Just to be clear, I didn’t actually attend QCon New York
this year. But after the experience of attending QCon San Francisco in
2010, I never forget the many great quotes you’ll find on Twitter. This
time was no different.
As you can expect from somebody like Michael Feathers
, he made some great quotes in his talk on Patterns of Software Change
- “Architecture - the part of the system that you can not replace without having a different system”
- "Over-engineering = weighting a possible future too highly in design."
- “Code Turbulance”, a name for frequently changed code
- “Anytime you manage by the numbers, instead of actually (God forbid) looking at the code a way will be found to game the numbers”, in a discussion on the uselessness of using only code metrics for judging the quality of your code base.
Looking forward to QCon San Francisco in November…
