Development, the microscopic view


Whether it's software or content, making a change can often be a much bigger deal than you'd think. I was reading The Best Software Writing I, selected and introduced by Joel Spolsky, and came across a delightful essay on that very topic.

It was from Eric Lippert's blog back in 2003, and fortunately it's available in his archives so I can share it with you without the struggle of "how much quoting is fair use for a review".

For your reading pleasure, "How many Microsoft employees does it take to change a lightbulb?".

    Thanks Jeanie, that’s a nice thing to say. Glad you liked the essay.  I’ve gotten a lot of good feedback on it.
