Heh - Brilliant! But I would add that, against your better judgement (and no matter how much you warn against it), the prototype *will* become the production code.

Factor in some time to redesign the ugly bits once you more fully grok the problem domain.

    ... the prototype *will* become the production code.

    That is the intent. But only once the omissions of the prototype are demonstrated and acknowledged. That way the refactoring of the prototype has budget for, or an explicit waiver covering, those omissions.

      Ah, I see. I wholeheartedly agree - and I'll try that tactic on my next project :-)

      (My biggest problem seems to be convincing the Powers-That-Be that my learning how to do something needs to be part of the timeline.... folks seem to think that because you are a "computer guy", anything computer-related must be already-internalized knowledge. Sigh.)
