The software engineering rule of 3

Erik Bernhardsson

Here’s a dumb extremely accurate rule I’m postulating* for software engineering projects: you need at least 3 examples before you solve the right problem. Engineers often focus way too much on reducing duplicated code. This is what I’ve noticed: Don’t factor out shared code between two classes. Wait until you have at least three. The two first attempts to solve a problem will fail because you misunderstood the problem. The third time it will work.

The Product Dev Conundrum: To Build or Buy in a Digital World?

Speaker: Mark Ridley, Owner and Founder, Ridley Industries

Any PM or technical leader who’s led the charge of building a digital product knows that product engineering is one of the most expensive elements of business. In most cases, actually building software should be the last avenue that companies explore to deliver great products, as software engineering, data science and product development are complex, uncertain and hard to manage.

Software Engineers and Automation

Erik Bernhardsson

What about software engineers? I just ran into another one of these arguments: Software Engineers will be obsolete by 2060. Think about how much around us is currently powered by software and how much could be powered by software. The opportunity to apply software is probably 100x larger than what’s currently being used. So why aren’t we using software 100x more? Because software engineers are expensive.

How to become a Software Engineer in India?

The Crazy Programmer

Engineer. From a wide range of engineering degrees that the numerous colleges in India offer, computer science (CS) engineering is the most common branch of engineering, whereas Software engineering (SE) is sometimes considered a sub-branch to it. While CS offers the knowledge about the hardware, SE pertains deeper into the development of software so that it works in its intended way. How to become a Software Engineer in India?

Shifting Left in Software Engineering

Dzone - DevOps

Shift-left practice in the software engineering field is intended to find and prevent defects early in the software delivery process. Shift left testing means testing earlier in the software development process. Waterfall, a traditional software development model is based on requirement engineering takes place on the left side of the project planning while delivery and testing requirements are on the right side.

Functional programming is the libertarianism of software engineering

Erik Bernhardsson

This is a pretty dumb post, in which I argue that functional programming has a lot of the bad parts of libertarianism and a lot of the good parts: Both ideologies strive to eliminate [the] state. (ok, ok, dumb dad joke). Both ideologies are driven by a set of dogmatic axioms rather than a practical goal: Libertarianism wants to reduce the government because any involvement distorts free markets.

Software Engineering

The Programmer's Paradox

The standard definition for engineering from Wikipedia is: Engineering is the application of mathematics, empirical evidence and scientific, economic, social, and practical knowledge in order to invent, design, build, maintain, research, and improve structures, machines, tools, systems, components, materials, and processes. The tricky part about engineering good software is acquiring enough deep knowledge. At some point software engineering will become mandated.
