Code Speed

Although it sounds good to say that developers need to slow down and get it right, the fact is they need to speed up and get it perfect.

A case in point is the no longer simple process of creating a build, or executable. The build process involves assembling all of the individual components of an application and compiling them into a single, working whole that can be reproduced and installed as a unit. With the advent of component-based development, this is no mean feat. The build may encompass dozens, if not hundreds, of discrete modules, libraries, and files. As a result, the build can take days ... if not weeks, or even months, to get it right.

In the time-box, rolling release world, builds are done no less than weekly. The only way for this to work, and work consistently, is for the code to be under tight management and control and for the build process to be strict and streamlined. Speed has a way of burning off fat, and sloppy coding practices cannot survive the friction of this new model.
