Issue #280



Hope you all had a fantabulous weekend. I'm on travels all of this week, so I prepared the issues in advanced, just for you! I'm gradually learning from my mistakes.
Oh I also set up a page for affiliate links for the newsletter. It'll mostly feature links to books that I've enjoyed and I'll add more as I setup different affiliate stuff.
Other than that, here's the issue.

Jordan Kaye discusses the idea of "striped development", which is an iterative approach to designing and implementing software. In this approach, work is organized into three repeating phases: design, striping, and implementation. The most important part of this strategy is that it is circular, meaning that the design phase is updated after each stripe is implemented. This allows for new information to be taken into account and for the design to be improved over time.
