What about some (programming) jokes for a smooth beginning of a new year? Let's start with an old one:
How many software developers does it take to change a lightbulb? 10 to discuss the requirements, 10 more to do the analysis, 10 more to do the design, and one to write the code, 12 years later.
Well, that's definitely a "waterfall-model" one! Do you know some XP-jokes? I don't think there are any, as Agility (with the capital A!) is much to cool nowadays to be joked about ;-)! So, as not to let you think I'm a hopeless oldtimer, here is some more modern one, actually a cartoon* :
Well, a discussion could begin about Java, its low-level interfaces, its megatons of frameworks, etc... but not this time.
And here's another one, this time more higher-order and functional (Haskell, if I'm right)**:
Isn't it cute?
And, at last, hava a look at a day in programmers life: http://www.muza.pl/7001.html?cc=0.6113369317218645&mode=image&img=0#gallery. It's really hard sometimes!!!
PS: If you know some XP or Agile jokes, please let me know!
