In the Big Time now.....

(sing to the tune of Political Science by Randy Newman)

Run the compiler
Run the tests
You got no requirements
Your project's a mess
Your goal donor
Has just left town
And i think the gold owner's
Gonna shut it down
Look at everybody flee
From the project called c3
Got a book contract for you baby
And another one for me
We'll claim victory anyhow
Cause we're in the bigtime now.....


We're All Extremers

(sing to the tune of The Monkees - I'm a Believer)

We're coding face to face
Cause we're all extremers
Not a trace
Of written design
There's just code
Oooooooooh
We're all extremers
Cause the code is the design


Hey Dude

(sing to the tune of - well you can probably guess...)

Hey dude
Your code smells bad
Go refactor and make it better
Remember
That tests are requirements
Then you can begin
To make it smell better

And if you say you need design
Hey dude
Don't whine
Make sure you don't put in
Any comments

Just code what you need today
Then go
And play
Remember the schedule
Is the customer's problem

La la la la la, la la la laaaaaaa

Hey dude
Your code smells bad
Go refactor and make it better
Remember
That tests are requirements
Then you can begin
To make it smell better



The Project

(sing to the tune of The Wall by Pink Floyd)

We don't need no documentation
We don't need source code control
We don't need no stinkin' comments
No lonely coder at one console

All in all we just need
Projects that are small
