Are there any articles out there for planning applications? I find my self not planning enough generally, and over planning some parts, while leaving the details out on alot of others. Most of the time I find as I start coding I missed out on planning some really major parts and the spur of the moment solutions aren''t always that great. Just looking for direction and some help improving my habits. Pat

The management of a software project is a fairly large topic. It falls under a few categories:

Project Management
Requirements Capturing
Program Design (more the chief software architect than the project manager but in many project groups, they are the same person)

I think you are mostly interested Program Design.

Again, this on its own is a large topic. There are many strategies to engineer software.

Gamedev has these articles.

I think going to the library or bookstore or amazon.com might be your best bet.

Some choice books include:
Software Engineering
The Unified Modeling Language User Guide

There are others, but I am off to lunch.

Check out the software engineering forum on this site.
