How to use "Prodding" in context?
"prodding" is a perennial problem in software development. It describes the process of inserting temporary changes into a code base in order to make improvements, usually in response to a requirement or bug report from a customer or user. There is no simple answer to the question of when prodding is appropriate and how much should be done. Prodding should be guided by the needs of the project and the code base, and it should be done with caution and as sparingly as possible.
Many developers consider proding to be a necessary evil, and view it as a way to get the code base into a better shape.
