How I Develop: Introduction

In Development by PaulLeave a Comment

When I start coding a new application/library, I normally just start Visual Studio, create a project, and then start typing. If I’m just hacking something together to solve a particular problem, it usually doesn’t get more complicated than that. But if the project needs to survive longer than a few days and/or through multiple revisions, there are some things I like to have to make development easier. These include:

  • Source control.
  • Version numbers.
  • Build script.
  • Setup application.
  • Tests.

While each of these requires work, they really do make development easier and less error-prone. I’m planning to write some blogs in the future with more information about each of these. So stay tuned!
