I’ve added a new site to my aggregator this morning, suggested to me by my partner Darin. It is Hacknot, subtitled “links, articles and news for disciplined developers”. I’ll admit that I took a little bit of joy at seeing this article, “Extreme Deprogramming”, which compares XP to a cult. I’m not sure that does much for us, but it was funny. Most of the things I’ve added to the aggrator lately are kind of like this, development and/or business process related, with an eye towards stepping up the game. It’s not about being “l33t” with my “h@x0r sk!llz”, it’s about being a disclipined and thorough grownup professional developer. This site is good reading with an eye towards that goal.
