So with out further ado:
A five point priority scale also works well.Luke Hohmann, Beyond Software Architecture . The phrase is part of a sidebar on "Bug Severities, Priorities, and Normalization".
I keep this book close to act as my conscience as a software professional; it contains all the advice and perspective I lose when I get excited and close to the raw code. Which is not to say it is perfect; this phrase is part of a chapter called the Difference between Marketecture and Tarchitecture :-)
If you would like to play along:
- grab the nearest book
- open to page 56
- Find the fifth sentence
- Post the text of the sentence in your yournel along with these instructions
- Do not dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.
Whew - it is a good thing this was about books; the closest thing I have unpacked is the Family Guy in geek friendly UMD format.
