Hippocratic Oath of Software Professionals

From Emergent Design – The Evolutionary Nature of Professional Software Development

  • We need something like the Hippocratic Oath: First, do no harm. I do not expect my software to be perfect (ever), but I think it is reasonable to hold myself to the basic standard that every time I touch it, I will take care not to make it any worse.
  • We need to center ourselves on the notion that validating software (with those who will use it) is part of making the software.
  • We need to code in a style that allows us to follow this do no harm oath.

So, what is that style? … The book is about what in Scott’s view that style is.
