Developing The Why

As a developer it is common to focused on only the What and How of what you are developing. Those helps you plan a solution, but they do not allow you to understand if you are delivering the correct value. In this episode we talk with Dwayne McDaniel (@McDwayne), developer advocate for Pantheon about the importance of understanding the Why of your development. We discuss why it is important to know the goals of your project. How doing so allows you to deliver the correct product and results. Further we talk about how that allows you to deliver value to your clients and your development career. Key Takeaways Always ask "what are we trying to accomplish, what is the end goal"? Build for the KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) that are relevant to your project. Present your solutions/products in terms of how they drive the expected results/goals.
