Here I will explain what I mean by challenging assumptions, and how each one of us can change and innovate by taking issue with assumptions.
Each programming language has it’s prevalent case studies, or “Do And Do Not”s. When I worked on one of my first products, I came up with an efficient way to develop almost all the features. My ingenious idea could significantly save us developing time, resources like CPU and memory, and of course — money.
But my notion came against the “Do and Don’t”s our developing environment had.
I tried a lot to convince my strict bosses to go the other way. I collected data, built coalitions of influential co-workers, and we all tried to debunk the idea that these guidelines are the only way to develop our product. After a few months, I wrote an alternative “Do and Don’t”s article that has been released to all the engineering teams in our project. …
