Recently, I was involved in trying to solve a blocking issue at work. It took us quite some time to figure out was what going on, and it ended up being one of those cases of "If it ain't broken, don't fix it". So, even though everybody knows about this line, I want to give it some extra attention.

While at the PHP UK Conference, O'Reilly had a stand. A new series of books caught my attention because they were not the standard "animal on white cover" book I had come to expect from O'Reilly. After looking at those books, I made my pick and went for Neal Ford's The Productive Programmer. A wise choice, as it soon turned out.

Just a small heads-up that a new post of mine has been published on the Ibuildings weblog, with refactoring as the topic.

Lazy developers. Sometimes it is a good thing, because else the developer might think things through too much (Java, anyone? ). But there are some problems that are so easily solved that a developer should not be lazy about it.
