Extremist programming (no relation to extreme programming) is the act of taking some principle, elevating it above everything else and applying it everywhere. After the dust settles, people often look at this extremism and think, “Well, that was kind of interesting, but using X in Y was clearly inappropriate. You need to use the right tool for the job!” Here’s the catch: sometimes you should use the wrong tool for the job—because it might be the right tool, and you just don’t know it yet.
Too much is never enough.
