Sponsor: Do you build complex software systems? See how NServiceBus makes it easier to design, build, and manage software systems that use message queues to achieve loose coupling. Get started for free.Came across a great blog post titled “Stop Blaming the System!” by Jurgen Appelo. This really relates to my Status Quo post. Stop blaming the system or using excuses like “that’s the way it is”. Processes and systems were put in place by people to solve a specific problem. Companies, processes, practices, and requirements all evolve and change. When you recognize a constant pain point try and find a solution. Just don’t let it go by as “that’s just the way it is”. Take responsibility.
