    18:45, Suspenders Bar and Restaurant

    Abstract

    The Unix approach has been summarized in many ways, but most simply its about a certain method in simplicity, portability and interoperability. Jamming a square peg into a round hole its not.

    The chapter entitled Basics of the Unix Philosophy in The Art of Unix Programming provides more comprehensive explanations.

    Take that approach and look at development projects with dozens of programmers in whatever language.

    How is the Unix method relevant? How do Unix principles aid in structuring and coordinating software development, even for, say, Java developers?

    William Baxter argues that the Unix methods and principles are the most useful set of tools for directing developers, even more so when bad habits need to be relearned for the goal of creating good code.
