in reply to Coming up with code design

It depends on the program that I need to write:

With small programs, or things that are quite obvious, I just start coding bit-by-bit. Testing each step, modifying, and letting the program grow...

However, when I work on large projects I want a decent design. Either made by me, or by some software architect. I don't just start programming. I've seen it too much before: start working and half way you come to the conclusion that the design was bad and that important and you can start al over again. No thanks.

Even that piece of paper and pen of you won't be enough for large projects. Every part of the project has to be thought about before you start coding.

[Corion]: marto: Redoing something on new infrastructure sounds fun. At least you can reuse your previous experience :)
[marto]: I'm looking forwads to it. The video sources are dying, and they don't have the hardware to play them back (old tape formats, not just VHS + Laserdisc etc)
[marto]: I'll be interested to see what difference in terms of file size/quality the new codecs make. I enjoy working on things like this, so that's a bonus
[Corion]: Ah, cool! So it's not an inhouse youtube but for a wider consumption
[marto]: last time it was IE6 clients, now they're on 11, so more scope there also, in terms of UI and playback
[marto]: in house as in Company network, not internet connected (power stations and the corporate HQs)
[Discipulus]: new Monsignor party! free beverages and pizza for all you monks! and a big thanks for the patience you deserved me during these years
[marto]: congrats Discipulus
[Discipulus]: only 4k points to sundial's level ..;=)
[Corion]: Yay Discipulus ;)
