The Programming Leadership podcast interviews Don Gray in this episode, The One Constant with Don Gray. Read on for show notes.

Change is hard, unpredictable, and downright complex. Getting people or systems to change is not easy and certainly not done in a vacuum. In this episode of Programming Leadership, Marcus and his guest Don Gray enlighten listeners regarding the world of software development, the reasons for implementing software changes and why it’s not as easy as people may think. And while doing so, the pair attempt to arm their readers with a variety of change literature that will have them thinking of containers, systems and exchanges in a whole new light.

  • Change is complex
  • Reasons for change - need for improvement, conformance, changeability
  • Software development is not linear and not deterministic
  • A software change is invisible and not physical so it is rather difficult to visualize
  • Prediction of how things will work is difficult
  • Retrospective Coherence - looking backwards after a change has been made
  • Thinking in Systems - people don’t tend to think in systems
  • Containers hold focus
  • People notice events and plot those events to see trends
