Chapter 9: Taste for Makers
How much does taste really matter in the software industry?
Do you evaluate your code in terms of taste (or "smell" or "style")?
Do you evaluate potential employees for their sense of taste? If so, how?
Do you work on e.g., open source software so as to scratch that itch that "There must be a better way"?
Graham ended with: "The recipe for great work is: very exacting taste, plus the ability to gratify it." Is there any great work being done in software?
