Programming and the problem of Feature Creep

Posted by jimi on December 5th, 2008 filed in C++, General

So i finished reading a really good book, “Programming Game AI by Example”.  It’s great for laying down a strong foundation of understanding AI, and also shows a lot of different techniques I hadn’t even thought of before.

Theres a problem now though, I have a bad case of feature creep.  I’ve learnt so much, and want to demonstrate all I’ve learnt to a prospective employer.  

I think it’s back to the drawing board, to lay out a final design so no matter what I learn, I have an end goal.

    I like writing modular software to handle the issue of feature creep. That way I can dream of all the fantastic features I’ll write, and when I only get around to implementing half of them I can still use/ship the software.

    @penny
    wont time constraints affect how modular your software is? and is it possible to account for all features when you design those modules.
