Louis’s Learnings: The Joys of Writing a Functional Specification

Sure, functional spec writing is not particularly sexy nor does it make for markedly engaging dinner table discussion.

Viewing the work as a creative and learning process while providing my client with the quality work they deserve certainly motivates me!
