It’s not endocrinology, after all!

One discussion that usually crops up between my colleagues at work is about accidental and essential complexity of software development. Practitioners within the field seem to agree that most software systems in existence currently are flawed in some way or the other. Many many people are working hard to make better software systems (for some arbitrary meaning of ‘better’), but more often than not fail in their lofty goals.

But as the quest for the software development silver bullet intensifies, more and more people are getting used to software systems in their daily lives – flawed software systems built by hard working programmers. I don’t really know how, but many of these users leave with an impression that building a software system is an easy task! A funny anecdote related to this phenomena was posted at TheDailyWTF recently (The title for this blog post is taken from that story) – recommended.
