Is 'Brogramming' Killing Requirements Engineering?

jdoss Why should we care? (432 comments)

Let a "brogramming"-managed team release product into the marketplace and see what happens. When it fails, we will yawn and continue doing what we've been doing.

My hatred was already maxed out for the null/empty-string screwup.

It has been so long since I've been bitten by that particular "feature", I forgot about it entirely. Now that I remember: DAMN THEM. GOD DAMN THEM.

Not really a fair comparison since the Dune books were always rooted in our history and present and far enough in the distance to allow Herbert room to explore. Furthermore, there were few truly made-up words in the novels. Most of the words had solid roots in our current lexicon (maybe not English but they exist) and mangled enough to where it is somewhat believable as language and culture would evolve 10,000 years into the future. Even totally foreign concepts had simple terms attached to them and with a few exceptions to be sure... but there was very little pure BS to be had in those novels.
