Tech Video: Rich Hickey: Hammock-Driven Development

By Vasudev Ram

I had seen this Rich Hickey video some time ago, and thought it was very good. Came across it again today, so decided to blog about it. The shortest summary of it is that he recommends thinking more (not just blindly jumping into doing stuff - because "we have to ship next week").

But there's a lot more to it than just a hand-waving statement. He talks a lot about the issues involved, his own experiences, and gives specific steps.

I haven't embedded it below because embedding of the video is disabled; you have to watch it on YouTube via the link above.

Oh, almost forgot - there's another guy who likes hammocks too :)

I saw a comment in an HN thread (about Fred Brooks retiring - he was the author of The Mythical Man-Month), and it was related, so I commented again about the Rich Hickey video above, in different words:
