isolate it, then put it together

June 17, 2008

When brainstorming a web project, everyone has theories (and everyone thinks their theories will work). When trying to figure out how to develop an intense complex application, try  and isolate your them by creating prototypes. As it progresses, start slowly piecing them together so they’ll all get along.

There have been plenty of times where I swore something would come out the way I intended. I roll around an idea in my head for hours, confident that once I start my code it will all work out perfectly. I usually get most of the best work when I’m trying to go to sleep. I visualize how I want something to run and see what I can do to improve on what I already (physically; in my code) have.

By trying to create your version of what you think may work, isolate your theory by creating simplified prototype. This can be fairly simple if you break apart your ideas carefully.

Once all is said and done, stitch your code together and watch your ideas come to life.
