Developer Blog Banter #3: Project post-mortem
It is nearing the end of the year and many of you would be near the end of your projects. I thought this would be a good time to look back and reflect on one of the projects you completed this year. The best way for us to learn is to reflect on what we have done, and analyse what we could have done better. This leads us to the Developer Blog Banter topic for this round.
We start on new projects with good intentions, but how often do we reflect on what we have done to see if we got to where we had planned?
Take your current or recent project one and discuss it. What were your intentions at the beginning of the project (to do it “right” this time, 80% code coverage, get it out by a deadline, learn a new technology, etc.). What compromises did you end up having to take. And what would you change if you could do it all over again.
As usual, comment on this post when you join the Developer Blog Banter and I’ll add your response below
