The Wisdom of Joe Armstrong

Joe Armstrong is probably one of the programmers I had the greatest respect for; he had a lot of good things to say. This is a collection of those things.

Five sins:

  1. Crap docs
  2. Crap website
  3. Crap dependencies
  4. Crap build instructions
  5. Group think

Seven distractions:

  1. Open-plan offices
  2. The latest stuff
  3. Social media
  4. Notifications
  5. Links - don't click them
  6. Ban scrum, etc...
  7. One thing at a time

TODO: port this list over to here.
