A somewhat lightweight article, that covers some issues that we should all be conscious of when reworking prototype code (and deciding whether to rework prototype code!) with a case study.
This article is hopefully a fun case study of how I iterated my implementation from a prototype to an over-the-top "production"piece. It covers some issues that we should all be conscious of when reworking prototype code, like: What is a Prototype? What is Production Code? When is Code Production Ready?

All my life I have been passionate about architecture / software design, as this is the cornerstone to a maintainable and extensible application. As such, I have enjoyed exploring some crazy ideas and discovering that they are not so crazy after all. I also love writing about my ideas and seeing the community response. As a consultant, I've enjoyed working in a wide range of industries such as aerospace, boatyard management, remote sensing, emergency services / data management, and casino operations. I've done a variety of pro-bono work non-profit organizations related to nature conservancy, drug recovery and women's health.
