The Churn - Tom R

Uncle Bob (Robert C. Martin) has been in software since 1970, so you’d have to expect that he’s seen patterns, frameworks and languages come and go with some regularity.

Here, in a discussion where some parts will seem oddly familiar to all of us, he reminds us that we may be confusing movement with progress in the tech world, and that we should be careful about moving to new tools before we (dispassionately!) compare them to what’s come before.

Track of the Week - Charlie E

‘The years we shared’ by Runrig
