Impressive thoughts in this presentation by Adam Bosworth. Worth pondering if and how Intelligent Reaction can be implemented in more traditional desktop application.
…Sketchup models on Google Earth.
Give it some thought. This is a major announcement.
This book is neither about extreme programming per se, nor about C# or .NET.
Instead, it provides a unique opportunity to look over the shoulders of a great Ron Jeffries to watch him create an (albeit simple) application, learn from the mistakes he makes, learn how he tackles problems, learn about how to improve the design of a software – and learn a few words of wisdom along the way.
Excellent read. Highly recommended.
Interesting thoughts on Avoiding “Blank Page Syndrome”.
The first question our users asked when confronted with a non-blank document was:
“How do I remove this stuff?”
So the jury is still out on that one. Labelling the “default” sample content as “Example” plus describing that this is only default sample content and will go away requires the users to read (quite a lot) & understand what’s written.
Judging from my experience, this spells trouble.
