re: What should be in the software developers 'Hippocratic Oath'? VIEW POST


I found this talk by Robert Martin that I think is a great starting point. We try and implement all of these where I work.


Thank you for that! Robert Martin has been mentioned before in this thread. It's very long though, is there a tl;dr on his views by any chance? (asking to simplify deep matter... I just realised that I'm what's wrong with the internet).


TL:DR; People are already dying as a result of bad software. Eventually people will catch on and demand politicians do something about said bad software. Uncle Bob wants to get ahead of that regulation and have some sort of non-governmental body that oversees the software development profession (made up of software developers instead of lawyers and politicians). That group sets for expectations for super high quality code and a set of ethics.

Thank you, that's appreciated. I might give it a go soon
