Midterm Heads Up

Hi. One of the questions on the midterm has the following two sentences in it:


… List two problems that it can help us to avoid in software development. If it’s easier, you can also state your answers in terms of the benefits this principle provides.


To avoid confusion on the test tomorrow, what these sentences imply is that you can either:

  • list two problems
  • OR list two benefits
  • OR list one problem and one benefit

Now all you have to do is figure out what principle I'm talking about! ☺
