It has been over a year ago the project started that I’m currently working on. This project had the goal to create an archiving service for grocery point of sales receipts. We ended up with creating an outstanding system that might become the new blueprint for software applications within the customers’ software development departments.
I’m now on a Java/JBoss/AngularJS project, that is heading towards it end. A triumphal end, since we created an outstanding software system in many various ways. The most impressive, the application has the potential to be the blueprint for future applications. It will influence how applications will be developed and operated in this particular customers’ software development teams. Here is the story.
Focus on the important things. Choose your architecture style according to your needs. Functional requirements are by far not everything that make a successful software development venture. Postpone major decisions. Always be aware of the things you do, be lean, do TDD and automated integration/acceptance tests, use Continuous Delivery, make yourself a comfortable life with always delivering a bit more than required.
