Software Development Trueisms

A co-worker sent these to me, and I thought they were hilarious and instead of spamming people I thought I would post about it.
  • Walking on water and developing software from a specification are easy if both are frozen.
  • Program complexity grows until it exceeds the capability of the programmer who must maintain it.
  • Users don’t know what they really want, but they will know when they see it…
  • The degree of normality in a database is inversely proportional to that of its DBA.
  • If you work on a program long enough, it will eventually send E-mail.
  • Technology is dominated by two types of people: those who understand what they do not manage, and those who manage what they do not understand.
  • If you want software made you have 3 options: You can have it done FAST, you can have it done RIGHT, You can have it done CHEAP. Pick 2.
