I was talking with a good friend of mine tonight who also develops software. He was explaining to his customer that he had found a couple of bugs while testing. The customer insisted that instead of fixing the bugs, that he should start from scratch and change the functionality. 😉 After banging his head against the wall, he politely explained that is not the way to develop software.
I was working with some associates doing requirements for a new project. While talking with one of the main players, an associate stated “That’s okay. We can make stuff up!”. I couldn’t help myself and I was laughing for quite some time. This has become one of our favorite lines to use. :))
