Fallacies of Software Engineering
This document is a collection of fallacies I encountered during my years as software professional.
Most of them are known from the literature in some way or the other.
The problem with them is that they might be correct according to intuition. However, lead to a lot of unnecessary spent money.
Interestingly, I see the mistakes repeated over and over again. Because of missing knowledge, due to well known cognitive fallacies or also because of opportunistic behavior and politics.
