programming The opposite of top-down design. It is now
received wisdom in most programming cultures that it is best
to design from higher levels of abstraction down to lower,
specifying sequences of action in increasing detail until you
get to actual code. Hackers often find (especially in
exploratory designs that cannot be closely specified in
advance) that it works best to *build* things in the opposite
order, by writing and testing a clean set of primitive
operations and then knitting them together.
