Philosophy

How we think about things, in the words of people that are smarter than we are.

Making new things

I like to find (a) simple solutions (b) to overlooked problems (c) that actually need to be solved, and (d) deliver them as informally as possible, (e) starting with a very crude version 1, then (f) iterating rapidly.

 — Paul Graham

Minimum effective dose

Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

 — Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Keep it simple, stupid

Any fool can write code that a computer can understand. Good programmers write code that humans can understand.
— Martin Fowler

Welcome change

Welcome changing requirements, even late in development. Agile processes harness change for the customer’s competitive advantage.

 — The Agile Manifesto

Teambuilding

Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done.
  — The Agile Manifesto
