Faster and More Predictable


While the above description of work flowing through approval gates sounds intolerably slow, now we realize it is unrealistically fast since we didn’t count the delay caused by rejecting a bad change. Now the organization, frustrated with the unpredictable trickle of finished work, will demand that the development group provide them with reliable estimates that can be passed on to customers and other stakeholders. When editors started providing color syntax highlighting, the improved awareness of grammar stopped the majority of grammatical errors in software. This provides a basic safety net to ensure that code works within its immediate domain, augmenting smart tools with application intelligence. But writing code that won’t fail during automated systems testing will likely require more knowledge than a single programmer can hold in their head at one time.
