YAGNI, it’s a very common term in development teams these days. Overused even.

However, in today’s more austere and economically challenging times, I have some new acronyms for you.

I’m not really up on popular acronyms so these may already exist in some form or another, but here are some more appropriate sayings that I’m saying/seeing more and more, together especially:

I Do Bloody Well Need It (IBLOWENI – ha ha) … but … NO-one’s Gonna Pay For It (NOGOPAFI).

    Here are some YAGNI alternatives:
    – TLTDAPJ (Too Lazy To Do A Proper Job)
    – IDWQQATA (It Doesn’t Work? Quick, Quote A Trite Acronym)
    – CBB (Can’t Be Bothered)
    – YH (Yee-Haa)

    For the yagni, create call to functions that always returns ‘TBD’ (To be developed)

    function f{
    return ‘TDB’
