Post-Mortem

Since my last entry, the ‘post-mortem’ analysis last Friday was the event worth mentioning most. I had no idea that this was conducted in the software world, as I am familiar with it only in biological terms. I am not sure if this is the term used for all information systems development, but it did make sense to investigate the aftermath of a software’s completion.

We were, of course, not there during the development of the modules up for the analysis, but our supervisors had us join in anyway. I was surprised that the conference was not very technical. We were lucky enough to get advise from the experiences of the developers as they told us stories during, not only the development phase, but their entire career. We listened in on a variety of lessons; from time management (stalling) and code re-use (copy-pasting) to things like tool-smithing and self-control.

As for our project, my fellow interns have already begun coding the interface for the module. We are still trying our best to keep our heads up for the many skills involved in the creation of online applications.

This picture was taken after the conference. It was already pretty dark out.
