Software projects are never finished
If you have a business, you need software. That’s just how it is.
You can choose: Do you buy off-the-shelf, or do you create your own?
If you create your own, beware: Software projects never finish.
Why? Because, unlike hardware (eg: a bridge), software has infinite possibility.
As you go along you inevitably find new processes you want to automate.
New features for the customer.
Software projects are never finished.
