Scarface’s wisdom translated to software development

June 4, 2009

We have the famous quote from the movie Scarface :

In this country, you gotta make the money first. Then when you get the money, you get the power. Then when you get the power, then you get the women.

So a possible translation for software development could be:

In this business, you gotta take the requirements correct. Then when you get the requirements correct, you can do a proper design. Then when you have a proper design, then you can create a sane implementation.

But you have to get the requirements correct. Otherwise everything will be a huge fail.

(Having the requirements correct doesn’t necessarily lead to correct design, or correct implementation, but is somewhere to start, specially when a number of people have to work on something)
