FDTG Principles for Developers

this is a small reminder for me no to forget these principles.

Be ready to change your plans when they’re not working the way you expected; don’t count on things remaining stable.

Centralized systems look strong, but when they fail, they fail catastrophically.

Don’t hide your systems; transparency makes it easier to figure out where a problem may lie. Share your plans and preparations, and listen when people point out flaws.

Graceful Failure
Failure happens, so make sure that a failure state won’t make things worse than they are already.
