#184225 - Thinking about designs
I was thinking about this he other day, working in consultancy you get to see a lot of different projects and you have to be able to see the problem from all kinds of angles, commercial, ease of manufacture, test-ability, cost and so on. I was thinking really this is an approach that most people would call real engineering and it contrasts with the current rise of the idea that you throw software at a problem until it breaks, I have seen people write c++ classes to handle the ADC on an 8 bit processor and you think erm....yeah.
I think this is why I don't like geeks who see software as a hammer and every problem as a nail.
