Software Is Details – KEYNOTE SPEECH
“It’s just a detail.” Have you ever said that or been told that? Whether it’s about implementation or requirements, we often use the word detail to suggest that something is not important enough to worry about.
There are so many things to worry about in software development that we need to prioritize — too much detail, and not enough focus. The problem is that within software, the details matter because that’s what software is: lots of details brought together in combination. If we don’t focus on the details, we get debt, defects, and delays.
