The Problem

(This is a slide show. You really won't get 
anything out of it unless you have a graphical web browser with graphics turned 
on.)
- No one ever got fired for starting a C++ project. However, when a C++ project fails, they fire the managers, since "a C++ project should, in theory, turn out no worse than a C project." [Steinman 9209.2].
- When a Smalltalk project fails (or even well before), they fire the language. Smalltalk is a highly visible target.
- Be prepared to spend too much time on political issues, such as justifying (over and over!) your use of Smalltalk, justifying necessary deviations from corporate procedures and conventions, justifying use of outside help, etc.
- Most organizational issues can be pre-empted if you plan for them!
