No matter how far you have gone on the wrong road, turn back!


I worked with a brilliant team of developers on a project some time ago, with a typically geeky calendar that had sayings by notable computer scientists like Edsger W. Dijkstra that was the subject of discussion in our daily stand-ups from time to time.

I was aware of the proverb, but had never really considered it in a software development context. Sometimes one encounters projects large or small that are failing or have indeed failed, or difficulty in trying to solve a technical  or programming obstacle.
