A Brief History of Reality
Software Reality grew out of a satirical programmers' site called Bad Managers. Bad Managers was started about ten years ago by Matt Stephens (i.e. me), with humorous stories about programmers' bizarre experiences at cowboyish softcos. All good fun.
Six years later Bad Managers evolved into Software Reality, which (along with an array of guest authors) has been noted for highlighting the ugly reality of Extreme Programming, Enterprise JavaBeans, the Ruby programming language, and the Transport for London Oyster Card among other things.
I've written a bunch of books since then, and written opinion pieces for The Register, Application Development Trends and others. Late one night, I'm afraid I suddenly decided to turn this website into a blog. It's always been a blog at heart anyway: highly opinionated, inflammatory (but not in a rude way), spoken from the heart, and probably not as well researched as it should be.
You can still get onto the old SR website from the "Articles from Way Back" links in the sidebar, so the original pages and links are all still intact.
We support Agile Modeling!
Software Reality is agile at heart - we believe that it's possible for a project to be "agile" without kissing goodbye to up-front design and design modeling. That's why we see Agile Modeling as a good thing.
