re: Sorry to have to say it, but this is bullshit. The problem of dividing a problem is in software, often almost as complex as the original problem! ...

I agree that software from a user-facing model is not divided up the same way as its internal structure, but at some point, you have to think about how a user story maps onto the structure of your software, and I think it can be valuable to think about this ahead of time rather than seeing what needs to happen while you're writing the code.

Not advocating for a waterfall model here, but I sometimes wonder whether we've thrown out the baby with the bath water by ditching all up-front design.


Ditching all up-front design is dumb. Not sure where you're getting that from.
