From the Beginning - El Forum - 08-18-2010

I am looking to see how some of you "experienced" programmers start a project. Do you start with a pencil and paper, is there program you use to organize how you want to set your database up, is there a way you like to setup your folders. Im just curious .... Thanks

I use mindmaps a lot.

It's an easy way to get your (and your clients) thoughts on paper, and then iterate through them to organize them. After a few iterations, the site structure usually emerges, and the functionalities of all elements are clear (or it's clear your still missing something).
