Why is rushing never a good idea in software development?
Being the first line of contact in a software house is a fascinating, yet challenging task. Every day I listen to passionate people who have brilliant ideas. And very often, I ask them to take a step back, take it slower, and even make them question their own way of thinking. Of course, there’s generally nothing wrong with acting quickly, as long as we’re not being neglectful. But there’s an old Polish saying: “haste is a bad advisor”. And just like there’s a reason for speed limits in every country, there’s a very good reason for research and preparation before software projects start.
