Poor Software Developers - Pull the Plug Early

SoCal CTO

There's an old adage in software development that I refer to all the time: The first 90% of development takes 90% of the time. I used this when I taught software engineering. And I use it all the time now when I get the kind of message that I received: I'm looking for a web developer to continue work on my website. I used a company in India to develop the site, and it's mostly done. The funds have been used up on the existing development.

Pragmatism with Flavor

TechEmpower

We build web and mobile applications, and we've been doing so for a little over fifteen years. As software developers, we're technophiles, so we enjoy these cycles and quite often find humor listening to the energy spent arguing on either side of issues. Not to downplay developer happiness. Anyone who has been around the web development block is going to tell you that they select technologies with some balance between coolness and pragmatism.

Symptoms of a Weak Development Team

SoCal CTO

I am hearing from my project management team a bit of distrust in the technical capacity of our web development team. I think we suffer because of the distance and culture but the project management team takes every late delivery or small bug as evidence that the development team may not be capable. But please: Just because your development team has these symptoms does not mean that you have a weak development team. No communication between developers.
