The Finishing Touches

Yesterday, I caught myself saying “I’m now putting my finishing touches to the application”. Twice.

It is a true and accurate meaning to the state of an application I’m currently delivering.

So, does a “Finishing Touch” apply to software? A web application? It is a term that is probably more tied to a work of art. A painting.

I won’t delve into how developers are close to composers, or increment vs iterate, but from the outskirts, even a simple feature delivery IS a work of art.

Given the numerous ways of how an application could function, there are only few ways of making it appeal, and that’s a work of art.
