Specs Specs Specs

/by apr/ I work with Andy in several projects and I have to tell you, he’s the most detail-oriented person I’ve ever met. He’s the kind of guy that enjoy details, gets excited reading and writting specs and I don’t know how, but he seems to memorize all of them. He is a voracious spec reader® that can pinpoint potential issues in specs from major institutions –that went through multiple internal revisions– at first sight, and he writes amazingly detailed specs for even the simplest task. During development, when we ask for some piece of information, his invariable answer (even from Blackberry) is: ‘look at page xxx of my spec’ (we have a roadmap spec that includes pointers to all other involved specs, he calls that the ‘master project workbook’ where we can find literally everything related to a given project). Andy has a blog now, and interesting enough, his blog has an specs section that I’m sure readers of this blog will find very useful. I highly recommend that you add his feed to your agregator.
