Project Development Principles: Use these principles to evaluate project decisions and priorities.

  1. Establish an efficient software development environment. Remove re-occurring barriers.
  2. Establish a software development environment that supports multiple developers.
  3. Understand the project “closure”, that is, all commercial software, custom codes, configuration settings, and data needed to make the project work. No hidden codes, configurations, or data.
  4. All custom code, configuration settings, and data under version control with backups.
  5. System, software, and site problem reporting and tracking system.
  6. Automate deployment process. No manual steps.
  7. Establish end to end process as early as possible.
