Thanks James, my team has been given a bag full of uncertainties and these guidelines will surely help us to reduce it.

Hey James! I love the article and how you nicely grouped all of these concepts under a single, common thread, represented by the post title. I didn't thought about it that way before.

I wonder if you could elaborate more in the future about architecture prototyping, especially how to effectively avoid the corners you've mentioned without falling into the rabbit holes of breaking KISS and YAGNI. I feel that on the early phases of building a feature, due to uncertainty still being high, it's difficult to establish what the obvious additions may be.

My friend, we´re gonna beat them no matter what, in Jesus´ name. The Pentagram no more!


You´re gonna love my peace!

Masks off, kittens, time to face big cats, for real!

I´m still standing, fighting their war bullshit, fiercely, like a buccaneer, tooth and nail!

Let´s go on a safari! No, not on a brutal, totally legit manhunt like in Bucha, a controversial war crime massacre I also touch on in my piece, in that democratic Nutzie U What! Come on, folks, keep us company, only 30 bucks!
