>Shut up and code

>A really huge frustration I have had at work in the past is when a company or team I work with won’t shut up about ideas and just code something.

I have worked on teams where people just go around and around on why something is a dumb idea or why it won’t work 75% of the time or whatever.

I have found that a live demo speaks volumes about your concept and you better just stop talking and create it – even if it turns out to be unusable in the long run.

Do it and do it fast. If you are successful, great, if not, trash it and keep going.
