At first I wanted to write about about craftmanship and paying attention to detail in software development. This resulted in approximately zero blog entries in a year and a half, so I will try a different angle which I am currently calling harmony in IT development.

Perhaps you know how work can be rewarding when you manage to strike a good balance between cost, quality, and speed (or whichever N properties you choose to pick from). Or when a design decision turns out to help you produce Beautiful Code. That’s what I’d rather explore because it seems to be extremely important to have this sensation of relief and accomplishment.

To put in a backwards way, I’d prefer not to pollute my mind with all sorts of strange procedures, hacks, smelly code, obscure commands, and whatnot. Perhaps I’ll complain a bit about things that annoy me from time to time. Let’s see.
