We do a lot of mobile product development at Cantina, and a common question that’s asked both by our clients and by us at the beginning of new projects is: How should we approach building this?
When I’m writing a goal or a task, I try to make sure it’s a SMART goal. Which means the goal is:
I'm a big fan of getting the basics of development right first when starting a new project or joining an existing one. One of those basic practices is _one-step builds_. However, I like to extend this idea to include not just building the project, but also bootstrapping a new development environment, migrating the database, running tests, and, if necessary, deploying.

Your thoughts? I mean... they kind of are?
But at the same time, Cathedral / Whitehorse is pretty close, I think I agree 50%. Because of the relative nature of climbing grades, there is no absolute, so you always need a comparison.
