The Mythical Man Month: Book Review

The Mythical Man Month by Fred Brooks Junior

Pretty much since I started working at ThoughtWorks 2 1/2 years ago I’ve been told that this is a book I have to read and I’ve finally got around to doing so.

Maybe it’s not that surprising but my overriding thought about the book is that just about every mistake that we make in software development today is covered in this book!

In other words…Domain Driven Design! Reading this part of the book very much reminded me of Phil Will’s QCon presentation where he spoke of the way that the business and software development teams at the Guardian were able to collaborate to drive the design of the domain model for their new website.

I’d certainly recommend this book.
