No Broken Windows
Show Notes Chapter Markers

In this week's episodes, we're exploring one of my favorite software development mantras "no broken windows". 

We're going to review the broken windows theory as presented in the book The Pragmatic Programmer and examine how that theory can be applied to our projects to to improve the quality of our software projects over time.

We'll look at what the theory is, and isn't, when applied to a software project and discuss a couple of low-cost ways for you to start applying this thinking to your own work.
