In todayâ€™s show I wanted to touch on the concepts of â€œproof-of-conceptâ€ and â€œprototypingâ€. These two methodologies for attacking a software project are closely related in many ways, but differ completely in how they can be practically applied to a software development effort.
Iâ€™ll highlight a new project Iâ€™m working on and how that project inspired me to bring this topic today. I realized something that most people already knowâ€¦ or at least they think they do.
**_This was the final podcast for Short Order Code. It only lived on a few months, but I enjoyed making it. Ultimately audio was not the format best-suited for my software topics. Shortly after this I became a dad and priorities changed._**
**_I hope you’ve enjoyed the series. Perhaps one day I’ll take to the mic again._**
