Dr. Mark Koh zitiert ein arabisches Sprichwort:

"Technik entwickelt sich immer vom Primitiven über das Komplizierte zum Einfachen."

Steve Jobs
"To design something really well, you have to get it. You have to really grok what it's all about. It takes a passionate commitment to really thoroughly understand something, chew it up, not just quickly swallow it. Most people don't take the time to do that."

Michail Kalaschnikov
"Alles Komplizierte ist unnötig. Alles Notwendige ist einfach."

KentBeck auf, zum Thema TestgetriebeneEntwicklung
"What do you drive your development with? Specs? Speculation? Anyone ever notice that the root of those two words is the same?"

"Written communication is nice across space-time. And it can be a nice addition to a conversation. That's why G*d invented bar napkins"

"Pragmatism always rules. But ideals need to guide pragmatism."

"Everything you reveal breaks some kind of encapsulation; but if you reveal nothing you can't get anything done."

(nicht im Originalwortlaut) ... it's impossible to design something foolproof because fools are much too clever ...

Passend dazu (Quelle unbekannt): "Entwickle etwas, das selbst ein Narr benutzen kann, und es wird auch nur ein Narr benutzen wollen ..."

"There are two ways of constructing a software design; one way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first method is far more difficult."

David Diamond. "For a Friend Assigned to a Maintenance Group" in Datamation, June 1976, pg 134.
The fellow who designed it
is working far away;
The spec's not been updated
For many a livelong day.
The guy who implemented it is
Promoted up the line;
And some of the enhancements
Didn't match to the design
They haven't kept the flowcharts,
The manual's a mess,
And most of what you need to know,
You'll simply have to guess.

WalterBright, C++ compiler architect
"We like it when people always want more! Otherwise, we'd be out of the upgrade business. Sometimes, people ask me what I will do when the compiler is done. Done? No software program that is selling is ever done!"

"When in doubt, use brute force!"

Aus einem Foliensatz zum Kurs "Systems Engineering Management", Washington State University
"A good solution somehow looks nice."

Paul Graham, Python Paradox
"if a company chooses to write its software in a comparatively esoteric language, they'll be able to hire better programmers, because they'll attract only those who cared enough to learn it."

Frederick P. Brooks, Jr.
"All programmers are optimists."
