Software development = basketball

This might be a leap but go with me for a minute.

"Lessons in basketball are lessons in life"


It's a cliched phrase that was drilled into me at basketball training camps and through basketball-related movies when I was young. We weren't just being encouraged (forced?) to learn lessons that would help us play better basketball, these lessons would help throughout our lives.

Thinking today about the importance of fundamentals, I wonder if the world would be a better place if more developers (had) played basketball.

  1. Anthony Bourdain talks about System D in his book The Nasty Bits. Great description of doing all the right things, but you still need to get something on the plate.
