How to Fail at Software Development

    Hello,

    The book "How to Fail at Software Develoopment" is about all the
    strange and funny things people do in the name of developing software.
    I worked in software development for over 20 years and found silly
    things that were being done in the name of software development were
    being repeated again and again. As a matter of fact, most things that
    cause software projects to fail are forever being repeated. And you
    can spot the symptoms if you know what to look for.

    Most people running software projects don't have much software
    experience, so their inventions are usually not new. They rediscover
    the same mistakes over and over again. It turned out to be a book of
    very funny scenarios--some I lived through, and some were lived
    through by others.

    Those who don't know the history of software failure are doomed to
    repeat it. You can find the book on Amazon or wherever.
