“It is unfortunately very typical that managers brag about their SDLC being agile this and agile that, while in fact it is... cowboy coding on the loose.” — Totally. I swear some project managers saw the bit about “we welcome late changes in requirements” and thought “Great! We don’t have to design anything! Just give the developers a one-sentence description and a timebox of half an hour to develop it!”

comment Why can't we capture the design of software more effectively?
I’ve no idea on the whys of this issue, but it’s the subject of Fred Brooks’ ‘The Design of Design’‌​. (Apologies if you’re already familiar.) He discusses examples from programming and architecture. He particularly notes that capturing rationales (for both the design, and rejected alternate designs) is really useful, and not well-served by current tools.

comment Techniques to increase logic at programming
“I afraid of code... if I dont finish it on time my boss will fire me etc.” — That’s not a great environment in which to enjoy, and therefore get better at, programming.

@Cape: I can imagine. Were they open to the public? Were you worried about “piracy”?
