    I always find it interesting when there are articles written about software developers that have really nothing to do with software developers. For example, the first excerpt states that software developers spend six to seven times as much time fixing and modifying software as they do designing it. That is probably a relatively accurate figure. What they don’t take into consideration is that most software developers aren’t involved in the design and build process. Yes, that’s right. You have team leaders, project managers, architects, etc. all involved in the design process – if there even is one. I recently had a colleague that was given a set of specs on a napkin her manager drew up at lunch and said “How long will it take you to build this?”

    I agree with the article in the answer is really BAD ORIGINAL DESIGN. Unfortunately or fortunately, I’m not totally sure, most software developers have no say until the design hits their desk and their manager asks the comical question of “How long?”
