As the Mind is Bent… grows the developer (or something like that). Over at the "Practical Agility" blog, Dave Rooney has posted a piece about the way that pilots and developers both "revert to training" under stress, i.e., fall back on deeply-engrained habits when the going gets rough. Unfortunately, in the case of most developers those habits are ones that work in a student context, but not in the real world, like leaving things 'til the last minute. Fixing that is a bigger job than I can fit my head around... (Thanks to Adam Goucher for the pointer.)
