Industry Analysts, Ruby and the Fallacy of Productivity (Part Two)

Hype is the plague on the house of software. I wonder if any of the industry analysts and the folks in the Ruby community that promote "productivity" have ever read Robert Glass book entitled: Facts and Fallacies of Software Engineering. If not, they should...



Hopefully neither industry analysts nor the Ruby community will get too torqued in that I decided to list facts when they could only respond with their own perspective. The list below is essentially the outline of the book. Each fact and fallacy is explained in its own section, with its controversial aspects both acknowledged and addressed, and ample references are supplied supporting each assertion.

Complexity
