I found the Slate Star Codex review (recommended by this article) more readable.

I think there are fascinating comparisons to be made to legacy code and the full rewrite.






Especially when the thing that is being rewritten and refactored is not the software but the human processes that the software is meant to facilitate.

How many managers choose to enforce, say, an Agile methodology on their team, not because they are any good at Agile but because existing tools like JIRA support that workflow and it's easier to just go along with it?


I think that's a separate interesting application of the principles involved, but interesting as well to be sure.
