We’ve started the Hunchworks codejams.  That means we’ve got serious about building a distributed team of volunteer coders.  Which also means that we have to get really serious about how we describe the code.

I’m talking features and user stories – the things that developers need so they know what needs to be built and why (i.e. the business justification for these things).  And as a coding dinosaur™, I’m used to speccing out very large engineering systems (think aircraft or submarine-sized) using detailed requirements and tools like Modaf.

Time to learn, and learn fast methinks.   Good places to start looking are:

So. We’re on it.  The results will be appearing on the Hunchworks Github soon.
