Agile Web Development with Rails – Chapter 5
What! You tease me with code in Chapter 4 and now there is none in this chapter?!? Oh wait, I guess we should at least figure out what we want to build moving forward. 🙂
Well this chapter is all about doing some very high level use cases, page flows and a quick data diagram. It’s just scribbled on a piece of paper, so it’s nowhere near as scary as a “dysfunctional requirement” or UML diagram. It’s your basic e-commerce application. Which is fitting since I’m actually right in the middle of an e-commerce project at my “day job” which I’m building with MonoRail.
So that’s really all that’s in this chapter. Dave does point out how RoR fits in perfectly with agile because of the ability to make such quick on-the-fly type of changes and the customers can be involved more often.
Alright, next I get to write some code again!
