OT: Data Structure First or Code First?by jerrygarciuh (Curate)
|on Mar 29, 2002 at 21:09 UTC||Need Help??|
jerrygarciuh has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have been hired to code a calendar almost exactly like this one with the calendar data entered via whatever I design into a MySQL db. As it stands I plan to contemplate the most intuitive way to set up the dates as indices and maybe a limited array of topic headings for an alternate presentation of event by topics. Then I'll make the Perl to create and red the data as I envisioned it.
My question is how others go about relatively simple projects like this when they have more or less free rein? Which comes first data structure or code?
