We haven't yet put "conform to UI spec" in our done list (because it is hard to measure/test), which causes many issues like -
- not being able to get a true sense of completeness/progress
- designers complain that most front-end developers don’t seem to respect the designs when they build the templates. They just align stuff approximately, don’t notice all the details
I challenge us to add "conform to UI spec" in our done list to take our application quality to the next level.
I will post my thoughts and findings on how to achieve this in future posts...
