For the last couple months I’ve had a strange fascination with the TV show Holmes
on Homes. By no means am I construction-literate. When I want something
built with wood, I buy it. The fascination is not about the construction, or
even his manly good looks (FYI: I meant it in the friendly-way, not the friendly-way),
but the premise of the show.
Mike Holmes is about doing a job right. It doesn’t matter what the job is; it HAS to
be done right. Period. No if’s, and’s, or but’s. We need more people
This applies to Information Technology as well. Take the Security
Development Lifecycle for example:
Do it right first: securing new code helps keep down compatibility and roll-out costs.
Why aren’t more people making it right?
