The Three-step Sequence: Incorrect Assumptions and Experience

September 30th, 2008

the obvious … is never seen until someone expresses it simply. – Kahlil Gibran

The preface of Object Oriented Software Construction literally introduced me to the three-step sequence:

the well-known three-step sequence of reactions that meets the introduction of a new methodological principle:

(1) “it’s trivial”;
(2) “it cannot work”;
(3) “that’s how I did it all along anyway”.

(The order may vary.) – Bertrand Meyer
