When to Plan, When to Grow, When to Prune, When to Burn: A Case Study

Chuck Hagenbuch, Software Engineer
Jon Parise, The Horde Project

Track: PHP Conference
Date: Friday, July 27
Time: 11:30am - 12:15pm
Location: Fairbanks C&D

This talk uses the real-life experience of the Horde project to explore: how a project can grow software iteratively; when to reject features; how to throw out only what you have to; the dangers of both under- and over-design; and other software engineering topics in the context of web applications.

The Horde project started when a small student organization needed a webmail application, and a quick PHP IMAP interface was created to fill the need. Through accumulation, evolution, and revolution, this initial hack grew into the Horde Project, a collection of applications and documented libraries that follows recognized software engineering principles.

Presenters include the Horde project core system architect and project leader, and system administrator.
