Talking about getting software engineers to change

 

Software engineers develop their personal practices when they first learn to write

programs. Since they are given little or no professional guidance on how to do the work,

most engineers start off with exceedingly poor personal practices. As they gain

experience, some engineers may change and improve their practices, but many do not. In

general, the highly varied ways in which individual software engineers work are rarely

based on a sound analysis of available methods and practices.
