A lot here is about putting more emphasis on the team taking responsibility for everything, not only for coding and testing. The problem is that some people just are not interested in these things at all and are happy to just code away. On the flip-side of the article, technical quality is not in focus at all.
To me, this doesn't sound like it's solving the issues with a lot of agile implementations.

I'll never understand group hate. What can go wrong in a person's mind so much that you consider violence against arbitrary people just because you think they are members of the group you hate?
Well, maybe I don't really want to know, but I hope that society learns to recognize the patterns and reasons and how to avoid them. And pay constant attention, too.
(I don't understand personal hate either, but it's easier to see how a concrete person's behavior can trigger aggression.)
There has been some drama unfolding over at #StackExchange. If you are unaware of the details (I was until yesterday) but want to find out more, here are some links.

Functional Dependencies Considered Harmful - One Man Think Tank
Ralf proposes to cleanly separate "logic" from "integration" code. I think this is useful but to me the distinction is often not very obvious. Also, in a bigger code base "my code" and "third party code" pretty soon becomes a very useless distinction. Maybe a more helpful distinction could be to consider the differences that the onion / clean architecture makes?

You know why all the old software people liked IRC?
Because when you wanted to ask a question in some channel you'd never been to before, you didn't have to spend 10 minutes going through forms to set up account usernames & passwords and unsubscribing from newsletters and alerts like you have to today with the damn web forum software you think is so great.
