Pre-factoring: Getting it (Closer to) Right the First Time by Coraline Ada Ehmke
Mention the word architecture and you're sure to hear criticism about the difference between waterfall and agile processes. Spending time on extensibility? You ain't gonna need it, they say. Worried about speed? Cries of premature optimization ensue. But that MVP you're building is going to form the core of a business solution that will presumably last for years. Short-sightedly painting yourself into a corner is not a good way to start it off. But it doesn't have to be a choice between cowboy coding and analysis paralysis. We can take a step back and explore ways to budget for basic architecture, plan for the future, lay the foundations for growth, and avoid becoming riddled with technical debt.
