What Are We Building?

Requirements, requirements. There are few things worse to me as a developer than having to guess what I’m supposed to build. I’m currently in a shop where we get high level requirements from an end customer, but the details are left to us.

–“Should this have a default, Bill?”
–“I dunno, what do you think, Jeff?”
–“I dunno, what do you wanna do, Marty?”

Ugh. It’s a huge comfort to have someone take the time to find out what we should really be building.
