NewsFocus on the User PinstaffTerrence Dorsey1-Apr-13 14:47 
"I've solved this problem before." "I need to sort out the technical requirements first…" "I've already implemented the following…" If you ever hear someone utter phrases like these at the start of a project, chances are you are in for a world of trouble. It's not that knowledge of a problem domain, determining technical requirements, or getting a head start on solving a challenging technical problem are so inherently bad. The cardinal sin is focusing on any of these before you have sorted out the most important thing of all: the user experience.
You're solving a user problem first, not a code problem.
