in thread OpEd: Programming is not Team Sports
To follow your boat analogy, I'd build the hull and make sure that it floats, draws the depth that I expected, performs in the wave tank correctly, and then continue with the deck, the fittings, the rigging, engine/sails, nav equipment and so forth.
I may not have explained my 'on the fly' approach very well: I'm talking about getting started with the basics, and making sure that the basics work correctly.
