Arguments Thinking with Data by Max Shron
“Arguments are built around claims. Before hearing an argument, there are some statements the audience would not endorse. After all the analyzing, mapping, modeling, graphing, and final presentation of the results, we think they should agree to these statements. These are the claims. Put another way, a claim is a statement that could be reasonably doubted but that we believe we can make a case for. All arguments contain one or more claims.”

Microservices Building Microservices by Sam Newman
“A strong factor in helping us answer how small? is how well the service aligns to team structures. If the codebase is too big to be managed by a small team, looking to break it down is very sensible. We’ll talk more about organizational alignment later on”

“Even the smartest among us can feel inept as we fail to figure out which light switch or oven burner to turn on, or whether to push, pull, or slide a door. The fault, argues this ingenious book, lies not in ourselves, but in product design that ignores the needs of users and the principles of cognitive psychology.”

The ducks would argue (quack?) that HtmlFormatter and PlainTextFormatter already share a common interface because both implement the output_report method. Thus there is no need to artificially grind in the point by creating what is essentially a do-nothing superclass.”
