For the past 15+ years I have been involved with a variety of software development projects as a software developer. I have worked through all stages of the software development cycle and worked with different life cycle methods. I emphasize design and architectural detail in all of my software development projects. Regardless if the project is internally versus externally driven or a desktop versus web application, I believe the same attention to detail and quality should always apply.  After all, software design and development is a reflection of the people who work on it.
