Beautiful Software

with 3 comments

Peggy Reed shared with me her thoughts about beautiful software. To quote Peggy:

Beautiful software goes beyond elegant GUI and elegant APIs.

Peggy will elaborate on this intriguing subject on March 18 in Denver as part of the Agile Success Tour organized by Rally Software. Until she discloses her “secret sauce”, I would allow myself to share one fascinating linkage: IMHO Peggy’s thoughts about beautiful software are very synergistic with Jim Highsmith‘s ideas about intrinsic quality.

Both the Rally team and I will elaborate on the subject after the March 18 event. Stay tuned…
