Too many software teams operate behind the power curve all the time. Rotten code is induced drag. These teams have created so much induced drag that it takes a huge effort to make any forward progress. The team mushes forward at full power, barely making any headway.
But as I reflect on the potential clients I’ve met, some of the ones I learned most from were the ones we didn’t take on. By sharing them here, I hope these considerations will help others with app ideas further refine their products to serve their users (and make money!).
Software projects are displayed by Gource as an animated tree with the root directory of the project at its centre. Directories appear as branches with files as leaves. Developers can be seen working on the tree at the times they contributed to the project.
