Iterative Hacking

tags
Book: The Effective Engineer
  • A form of hacking through fearless iteration

  • The idea is to first make it work, then maintainable, then optimize.

  • i.e. Focus on survivability first, then make it tinkerable, then tinker to optimize

  • Ex: Build something by getting a shabby product out first. Then refactor it. Then iron out the chinks.
