Anyone can ship a product.
Anyone can put a product in a box or on an Appstore and call it a product.
This delivery model is personified to great extent in this clip from TommyBoy
So now we know how we can deliver a Sloppy product, with little care to production.
But the product, the code that follows these base rules’
- Is named correctly.
- Is Commented.
- Makes sense.
- Follows a logic flow.
- When asked what it does – a straight answer comes.
- Doesn’t leave behind garbage that makes its way to production.
- That no one is afraid to go into.
That is a product that is delivered with pride and the customer’s interests at heart.
Things get busy, you’ll get bogged down, but one sloppy delivery is all it takes to create a mountain of technical debt that you are always trying to dig out of.
