Hey,

Let’s think about our own take on how we do work today. If we receive a task to do, are we asking for more details, are we figuring out how to do it ourselves or just following the task’s details. If we do only the latter, this of course will get it done. But it’ll also increase the risk of forgetting about basic details, as a study on storing passwords reveals now. If there’s nothing in the task description about hashing a password, many people will not apply it even if they know it’s the better solution. But if it’s left out, the product will become a security risk. Or, if we build a website but forget to add the correct caching, server costs will be unnecessarily high and performance will suffer. It’s the little extra steps of thinking what we need to do as developers that make the difference between good, solid work and “just getting stuff done”.
