KISS Your Code

  • Product Management collects feature requests and their requirements into a backlog, prioritizing the most important features for the business
  • Software Developers process the backlog, writing code to add those features
  • Ideally, there’s some architecture, testing, and project management helping improve the process and outcomes
  • The application gets better because those features have been added
  • Rinse and repeat
Developers process a backlog to produce features
