The Unix Method of Development Management

6:45 PM, Suspenders Restaurant backroom
111 Broadway in Manhattan

The Unix approach has been summarized in many ways, but most simply it`s 
about a certain method in simplicity, portability and interoperability. 
Jamming a square peg into a round hole it`s not.

The chapter entitled Basics of the Unix Philosophy in The Art of Unix 
Programming provides more comprehensive explanations.

Take that approach and look at development projects with dozens of 
programmers in whatever language.

How is the Unix method relevant? How do Unix principles aid in 
structuring and coordinating software development, even for, say, Java 

William Baxter argues that the Unix methods and principles are the most 
useful set of tools for directing developers, even more so when bad 
habits need to be relearned for the goal of creating good code.
