Quote of the Day

"Out of clutter find simplicity;
From discord find harmony;
In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity."

Albert Einstein

Note: I was teaching requirements engineering today, and I spent more time than usual talking about viewpoints, task descriptions, personas, the need for the analyst to invent requirements and so on.
For some reason, while walking to the hotel those words of wisdom came back to my mind. Indeed, those principles apply equally well to analysis, design, or coding, and in a sense, they are at the core of quality software development.
The pursuit of simplicity and harmony is a recurring theme in Einstein's writings, some of which I've quoted before .
