As we have started working on Release 6.0, we have moved towards a new style of programming. You (like me) may not have realised that there were such things as styles of programming – but there are!
The model we have chosen is known as extreme programming. It fits very well with our model of customer feedback and iterative improvements. It does not however have anything to do with geeks on skateboards!
One of the really exciting things for me is that even at this very early stage in the development of Therap 6.0 the process involves showing iterations to those of us on the less technical side. Not only does this give me a glimpse of the future (and it’s looking very bright!) but also allows me and others to provide input and suggestions at all stages of development which should result in a better product arriving more quickly.
