Ivar Jacobson: Developers are too fashionable
Ivar Jacobson, inventor of use cases in software development, and one of the three amigos (along with Grady Booch and James Rumbaugh) who created UML and later the Rational Unified Process on the software industry:
We are as fashion orientated in our industry as clothing industries. We are changing fashion every five years. Go back five years ago it was Rational Unified Process (RUP). If you go just a few years ago extreme programming was very, very hot. Today you don’t hear about extreme programming. Today it is SCRUM, the new silver bullet.
