Organization Checklist

 < Day Day Up > 

You could start writing code without organizing your project—but that lowers your chance of actually finishing a project. Before you charge into the coding phase, make sure you know where you’re going:

  • Plan an overall architecture for the project.

  • Be flexible but cautious about changing the architecture.

  • Decide between a depth-first, breadth-first, or mixed approach to coding.

  • Choose an XP scheduling approach if you’re working with uncertain requirements.

  • Choose a beta testing scheduling approach if external feedback is important.

There’s one more decision to make before writing your code: where you’re going to store the code. In the next chapter, I’ll discuss source code control, and explain why every application should make use of this critical facility.
