Starting Point

Unless you’re an extremely lucky programmer or you work in academia, you’ll spend most of your career maintaining pre-existing, revenue generating software for your company.  If your company has multiple products and you don’t choose to stay with one for your whole career, then you’ll also be hopping from one product to another (which is a good thing for broadening your perspective and experience base – so do it).

For your viewing pleasure, I’ve sketched out the structure and provided some code-level metrics on the software-intensive product that I recently started working on. Of course, certain portions of the graphic have been redacted for what I hope are obvious reasons.

How about you? What does your latest project look like?
