This week, I spoke at IteratePHX, a local tech conference, about specific tactics to build a DevOps culture. One of the tactics asking questions along a line of reasoning that I’m calling …. EXTREME Design!!! (Apologies, I might yell EXTREME a couple of more times because, well, it’s fun.)
I still can’t believe that’s not a term that already means something in the tech world, so I’m coining it, Extreme Design™ or XD for short.
What is Extreme Design? It’s designing your software with the notion that, one day, your software will will need to deal with situation that sounds extremely unlikely today.
