It’s true. I get email from people on development teams who appear to be in some kind of big fight over something, and they are hitting each other over the head with various quotes from me, instead of thinking for themselves, and now they want me to adjudicate, as if I know the first thing about their problems or their world. I haven’t yet written the article that says that if you can’t think for yourself, no amount of “methodology” is going to save you.

About the author.

In 2000 I co-founded Fog Creek Software, where we created lots of cool things like the FogBugz bug tracker, Trello, and Glitch. I also worked with Jeff Atwood to create Stack Overflow and served as CEO of Stack Overflow from 2010-2019. Today I serve as the chairman of the board for Stack Overflow, Glitch, and HASH.
