The same for me.

I know what to begin with, but I do not see the full picture until some
point in the coding of the beginning. So, I basically go from one sub-spec
to another one.

Say, I need a dialog for some project management in the IDE.
First, I create a dialog window itself with some controls and make it all
nicely painted, resizable, etc. Only, then I begin thinking in details what
happens if I click buttons or select some stuff from list(s), etc.

So, basically, I code "until it is done" and I like it overall.

But that method is hazardous sometimes, because it may never be done.
You can recall Duke Nukem Forever game. It was not done by the original
team.

I think it is called "the feature creep" and Joel actually writes about it too.

What is "spec"? Speculation?


No sarcasm detected.

"spec" from "specification"

In computer programming,It's a document describing exactly as something should be/is implemented. For example,you want to write a C compiler conforming to ANSI C 89 you need to get(buy) the file spec from ANSI. It's used to describe file formats too for example. "read the BMP file spec" etc.
It's just to you get the idea...
