Not So SoftWare: Because Software Development Can Be Hard

Hi everyone,

My name is Matt Newkirk. I’m a software engineer and I build tools, mostly in Java, Perl, or Bash. Those are reasonably easy to create, maintain, and deploy.

I also help other engineers with their technical designs, testability, and code reviews. Installing a Perl tool is easy: yum or rpm can help you with that. Instilling better design is harder, though arguably more important.

This blog will be about both: software development (and management) practices, and parachute tools to get you home safely when those practices fail.

I hope you enjoy these forthcoming posts and that you’ll share your software development path with me as well!
