Now look at their number of downloads. Notice the correlation? The bottom-line reality of selling software is, Ugly doesn’t cut it. 9 percent of people will pick pretty over ugly every time. This has some pretty serious implications for micro-ISV development: it’s not enough for your application, Web service, or product to work right; it needs to make it past the customer’s ugly filter if you’re going to have the chance to sell it. Instead of slapping a Windows Explorer– like tree view on top of your application, you need to take a user interface–centric approach to both design and development.
By doing this, I could start thinking about how best to solve those problems. Figure 2-1. fm Page 26 Saturday, November 19, 2005 7:27 AM 26 CHAPTER 2 ■ DEVELOPING THE MICRO-ISV WAY Use cases are the logical, deterministic, word-processed half of the design story. They don’t really describe the application—just the interaction between your potential customers and your application. As helpful as use cases are for identifying what your application will do, they are by no means the only tool you need to develop a design you can start architecting.
One of the nice parts of starting a micro-ISV (besides burning most of your ties) is that you get to decide how much or how little of any given structure or formalism you want to use. For me, as I work through a major chunk of a program, I first write a bunch of use case headlines, as shown in Figure 2-1. Then, once I have good coverage of everything, I flesh out the preconditions, triggers, main path, and postconditions. When I started working on my micro-ISV’s first commercial product, a task and project management application called MasterList Professional, I defined what problems MasterList Professional would solve by creating use cases.
