Iteration is defined as the act or process of repeating. For example, iteration can include repetition of a sequence of operations in order to get ever closer to a desired result.

 

To-do List app:

Start with basic to-do’s

Next iteration, add priority levels 1-3

Priority levels don’t work right, so fix them for next iteration, and add levels 4 and 5

Find out users don’t want priority levels, but due dates, so replace priority with due date

The datepicker for due date is garbage, because it takes too long to select a date one year from now, so make that quicker and easier

 

Making Yard Nicer:

Mow grass one day

Next day do weed whacking - grass looking good

Next day water grass + trim bushes

Next day put new mulch down

Next day do some gardening- cut back some plants, plant new ones

I know the pain of a lonely heart

That cheers itself with song

And I hear your melody

You think you don’t belong

 

I know the pain of a lonely heart

That cheers itself with song

I know how hard it is

To always stay so strong

 

I know the pain of a lonely heart

That cheers itself with song

Living in a silent world

Where burdens don’t last long

 

I know the pain of a lonely heart

That cheers itself with song

Living in a busy world

Where burdens don’t last long

 

I know the pain of a lonely heart

That cheers itself with song

Living in an absent world

Where burdens don’t last long

 

I know the pain of a lonely heart

That cheers itself with song

Living in a restless world

Where burdens don’t last long

 

I know the ache/grief of a lonely heart

That cheers itself with song

Living in a restless world

Where burdens don’t last long

 

I know the ache of a lonely heart

That cheers itself with song

Clinging to a restless world

Where burdens don’t last long
