P170 Measure Once, Cut Twice

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

“Measure Twice, Cut Once” is a reminder that careful planning yields
better gratification than going too quickly into operations that can’t
be undone. Sometimes, however, it’s better to Measure Once, Cut Twice.
It’s one of the secrets behind how carpenters hang square cabinets in
not-so-square kitchens. And it’s one of the secrets behind how
developers write applications that are easy to fix when they cause
performance problems in production use. The key is to know which details
you can plan for directly, and which details you simply can’t know and
therefore have to defend yourself against. In this session, Cary will
discuss some aspects of software development where flexible design is
more important than detailed planning, using woodworking analogies for
inspiration. He will describe some particular flexibilities that your
software needs, and he’ll describe how to create them.
