Program requirements for DeIcer were never set and so at our meeting yesterday, we were pretty much coming up with possible scenarios and then going, “but like we said before, we really don’t know what the requirements are.”
So today saw two more meetings, one in the morning to discus the requirements with the proper persons; and again in the afternoon to go over those requirements and get some ideas down on paper.
It was a great exercise for me to figure out how to build a program for someone, as most of the programing I do is mostly for me. One of the biggest things I’ve learned is how to limit the scope of the work. That is, how to do just what’s required/needed and not build an all encompassing application. It’s amazing how fast grandiose ideas get inserted into programs.
I’ll probably start work on layout of program functionality either tomorrow or Monday.
Note: This wasn’t posted until 6/4/2006. I needed to review it and didn’t have time until now.
