#041 - Letting the tire hit the road ... how much software planning do you really need?
Show Notes

This week we talk with Thomas Gaigher about software planning ...

We discuss many things ranging from the Zen of Python, being pragmatic as a software developer, his pypyr open source project (a lightweight task runner implemented in pure Python), how to start a software project without getting stuck in analysis paralysis (both in a company or on your own), premature optimization, adaptability and much more ...

There are a lot of nuggets in this episode so make a coffee (or grab your favorite beverage), sit back and give it a listen.

To the person who asked about software planning on our Slack:

Thanks! We hope this helps you moving your project(s) forward.
