Go read Matt Kline's post on Shipping Culture, now

Reading time ~1 minute

Over on bitbashing.io, Matt Kline has an interesting blog post on how Shipping Culture is hurting us as an industry. Hop over there and read it now, because he addresses another case of the pendulum having swung too far. Your developers take a long time to get a new version out? I know, let's make them ship something half baked. Quality is overrated anyway. Especially when you don't have a reputation to lose as a maker of quality software.

If you only read one section of the post, read the part about Anti-Intellectual bandwagons. It summarizes one of my big annoyances with this industry, namely that we seem to dabble in collective amnesia combined with a side helping of AD... oh look, shiny!

That said, we are good at reinventing the octagonal wheel with a slight wobble around the axle.
