Fun rewriting the system

Here's a great article on why rewrites are dangerous

Two things to keep in mind:

  1. Refactor constantly to avoid the necessity to "rewrite" in the first place

  2. If you must reimplement a system, and you have any influence over the positioning of the product/system, convince the powers that be to position it differently so you can release incrementally without needing to completely reimplement the functionality of the new system first..
