Hello world! – Every project should start like this.

June 27, 2009 Leave a comment

This should be the first thing every project does before moving on. I got the idea from the pragmatic programmer. Before starting a development project, make sure you can at least go from the beginning to the end of a simple ‘hello world’ish solution using your design. This ensures that you have¬† all the components and can nip any schedule drains early (things that you thought would be installed/developed in no time but didn’t).¬† If you’re using Unit Tests, then you can also start that approach here also.

This also helps a team that is new with a technology get up to speed quicker.
