Seven Deadly Sins

Filed under: Uncategorized — charliealfred @ 4:13 pm

Most of us are familiar with Dante’s “Seven Deadly Sins” – lust, gluttony, sloth, greed, envy, pride, and wrath.  And many of us remember the vivid depiction of these sins in the movie Seven.

Imagine if Dante were alive today.  What might he have to say about the state of software product development?  Few would doubt that this activity has its own special collection of aberrant and deviant behaviors.  Perhaps the sins of software product development aren’t as intentional as the original set, but they sure can impete and frustrate the best efforts of those of us who work in this space.

So, the article is devoted to exploring the Seven Deadly Sins of Product Development.  It was fun to write.  I hope it is enjoyable and informational to read.
