The cost of tooling

Joe Gregorio

DeWitt Clinton: I just wasted the second of two weekend days spending more time setting up development tools and programming environments than I did accomplishing what I set out to do in the first place.

Specifically, I once again wrestled Eclipse and WTP and Maven and Junit and Subclipse and Hibernate and Spring [and, and, and...] into partial submission.

In other industries I've worked in 'tooling' is a separate cost tracked for each product.
