37 Signals Getting Real - A fantastic read

Picked up the book Getting Real from the great and fast Lulu.com this week and devoured it this weekend. What a fantastic read....I only wish it was longer!

Everything in the book is worth taking on board, even if you only agree with a fraction of it.

Main Points I Learned:

  • Get your stuff out there! A full product with half the features is better than half a product!
  • Forget meetings and planning and worrying about features, go with your instinct, start the programming and test the water with REAL code.
  • Say no to feature requests - make features earn their right to be in your product. Learn to say NO to people.
  • Knowing what to leave out is more important to knowing what to put in to a product.
  • Forget the hype around frameworks and languages and tools. Go with what you know and use what you feel comfortable using, not what other people say you should use.

Anyway, I wont spoil it all, do yourself a favour and buy this book. It will do you good.
