They are reasonably easy to reproduce and can be debugged using standard methods (code coverage). - A Discipline of Programming by Dijkstra. - Paradigms of Artificial Intelligence Programming by Norvig. This captures the essence of pairing as far as I'm concerned – it is a discipline of “programming out loud”. Their desks are often littered with stacks of paper and other debris. Still, if the only problems were deterministic access violations, I could live with them (I'm a very disciplined programmer). Experienced programmers will tell you that ignoring warnings is a bad practice. One way to get rid of warnings from your code is to pay attention to the warnings and fix the code. If DH were an accepted discipline, the recognition of programming activities or contributions to databases as scholarly accomplishment would not be such a big deal. It's important to remember that all programming languages require a discipline that most of us don't have. It is well known that programmers generally abhor organization and discipline. Many complex models attempt to deal with the deadlock problem—with backoff-and-retry protocols, for example—but they require strict discipline by programmers, and some introduce their own problems (e.g., livelock). As a result Alistair sees Crystal as requiring less discipline than extreme programming, trading off less efficiency for a greater habitability and reduced chances of failure. Programming languages are intolerant of error in grammar or syntax. - Smalltalk 80: The Language and Its Implementation by Adele Goldberg.
