We all know what duct tape programming is. I am one of them. I am no way close to Jamie but ya, I will make sure that the cart keeps running and crosses the finish line in time, whatever it takes. All the programming practices, patterns, Agile, waterfall, yada yada, are thrown out of the window when we have to make something complicated in a very very very, did I mention very, short deadline.
All the best programming practice gurus… no hard feelings, Peace.
