comment Is it normal to think about a design problem for days with no code written?
I didn't think this was worth a separate answer, so I'm commenting. I'm self taught and retired from my own software based company, based on my own software. I learned the hard way many times over, since I often had to solve problems right NOW rather than taking time to take a class. And one of the biggest lessons I learned was that the more time I took to think the problem over, the less time I spent programming it. A few extra days of planning could save weeks of coding.
comment “Release Early Release Often” for Android and iPhone Apps
I have to back this up. I haven't been developing for a year or so and won't be actively developing anything for another 6-12 months. It's amazing how your point of view can change. When I see apps on my Droid that have updates every week or two, I start wondering why they need that - They can't be adding new features that quickly, so just how buggy is that code they release so quickly? And, honestly, it's a major PITA to keep updating. I've stopped using apps (even ones I've paid for) and switched to others if I had to update an app too often.
comment What should be done with code that has reached end of life?
@jwenting: Then that gives you the answer.
