Topic: [Project Planning] Can I prototype first, and then build iteratively?
Starting an auction website...
I would love to design a showcase of the main website interactions (auctions, bidding, etc. in my case) without having to worry about: User registration, login, security, authentication, SSL, etc.
At the same time, I don't want my initial prototype to be useless. I want to build the app around it later... Just as an example, my models don't have a users table that stores login/passwords (I do have people table with various roles like bidder, seller, etc. stored) and I don't know where the login data would go once I decide to add authentication to the project (using a plugin supposedly).
My main questions is: how can I do this iteratively? Build the core, show it to the biz people, and then go on making it a secure app.
Thank in advance,
