Setting Priorities

Joel Spolsky writes about developing software products and setting priorities for features. First advice: “If you ever find yourself implementing a feature simply because it has been promised to one customer, RED DANGER LIGHTS should be going off in your head. If you’re doing things for one customer, you’ve either got a loose cannon sales person, or you’re slipping dangerously down the slope towards consultingware. And there’s nothing wrong with consultingware; it’s a very comfortable slope to slip down, but it’s just not as profitable as shrinkwrap software.”
