Software Engineering, Not Computer Science

Today's pervasive reliance on code-and-fix development--and the cost and schedule overruns that go with it--is not the result of a software engineering calculation, but of too little education and training in software engineering practices.

Good article on the difference between the two and the current state of the industry. Although this article has nothing to do with XP, one of the good things that XP is trying to do, is move us away from code-and-fix development and to something better.
