Sometimes it’s about attitude, or “You don’t really know the future”

I like the distinction between fellow Yugoslavian Gojko Adzic’s Specification by Example and fellow software developer Brian Marick’s Exploration Through Example.

Think about that for a minute.
The choice of exploration vs. specification captures something important and beautiful about the nature of software development. The discovery, learning, process of understanding… This aspect of software development is discussed in topics such as Emergent Design, and TDD.
