    well it is my website itrainharder

    just the framework of code in general you build first then built upon as the project grows. everything from helper functions to data access to business objects

    one of my users, who is also an oter wanted a "favorites" for foods,
    i had it working perfect in a few hours :o

    Agile development is a load of shit.

    "I know! Let's take the past 30 years of software engineering techniques and throw them in the gutter so we can write code faster!"

    -- six months later --

    "Shit, does anybody remember how this code works? How are we going to fit in this new feature? The code is totally incompatible, I think. Ah well, I'll just kluge something together..."

    Agile development must have been created by a bunch of programmers who read a couple of design books and coined a new term so they could keep doing some creative work instead of following engineering design documents for the rest of their lives.
