YAGNI: Some thoughts

YAGNI – it’s a neat term for a valuable technique. Ignoring an unknown future to concentrate on a known present. That does not mean that it’s application is obvious, though. I often find myself in “discussions” with architects and designers who recoil at the idea of building something specific to one customer or situation, when it is “obvious” that a general solution will be better.
