The cost of adding

Gerry McGovern writes about the hidden costs of adding content and features. It's easier and in our nature to look to add rather than remove, but we rarely think about the implications.

As he writes primarily about content, Gerry draws parallels with a similar article by Dharmesh Shah of Hubspot who warns against the urge to add more and more features to an application.

This is something we feel keenly with software such as content management systems where the extra features desired by the few bring complexity to the many, and increase support and maintenance overheads.

Anyone can add. It takes a professional to take away - article by Gerry McGovern

STOP! Before You Add That Feature, Do You Know The Real Cost? - article by Dharmesh Shah for Hubspot
