Is BDUF really BDUF?
Justing Etheredge posted a great article about that Design Up Front (DUF) is something else than Big Design Up Front (BDUF). He discusses the misunderstanding that just because BDUF is considered harmful in a lot of projects, it's not said that DUF is too and one should just jump in, start hammering in code and hope for the best. As an example of BDUF, Justin uses the example of a car manufacturer and asks himself why a car manufacturer uses BDUF (according to Justin) and we in software land often don't or at least try to avoid it.
