The Most Common Problems in Software Development

Problem: Bugs, Broken Code, & Technical Debt

Solution: Plan Realistically, Not Optimistically

Problem: Premature Optimization

Solution: Have a strong code review process

Problem: Stuck With Complicated New Technologies

Solution: Prioritize Senior Leaders

Problem: Too Much (or Not Enough) Abstraction

Solution: Find a happy medium

Problem: Overlooking the Little Things

Solution: Scope Properly

  1. Involve a senior developer in the project scoping process. They’re more likely to remember all the little details than a PM or PO (who will be focused on features).
  2. Keep track of what was missed in your last project. Use that list as a checklist for your next one.
  3. Understand that a project doesn’t end when it is “released.”
