Application Development Sins

7. Pride

This week’s post concludes our list of the seven deadly application development sins and the last one is what I consider to be the most serious of them all: Pride. Just like all the other sins, pride can also be identified at the root of many problems and wrongdoings and it can definitely be found lurking around in the software development branch also.

Now, when it comes to this sin in particular there is no doubt that more or less we all have it in us so it’s just a question of how much it will affect us and the outcome of our work. Still, this is not the main reason why Pride is regarded as the most dangerous sin on the list. The real problem, and many fail to see this, is that this sin in particular is the incentive for all the other six.

Go through all of them from top to bottom and you will quickly understand that you’re actually reading various manifestations of pride. On the other hand, when it comes to software development in particular this sin usually leads to overconfidence and a “know-it-all” attitude which is the worst thing that can happen to a programmer or a development company in terms of advancements and continuous improvement.

Well, this pretty much sums up our list of application development sins so in conclusion I just want to add that since we are aware of these dangers, we make sure to stay clear of them and completely exclude them from our practices.
