In the UK (and by the look of Raddevus' post, the USA too) the terms "Rocket science" and "Brain surgery" are both synonymous for something that is exceptionally complex or requires genius-level skills to do. Phrases like "It ain't rocket science" or "You hardly need to be a brain surgeon" are used for something that really isn't difficult, whilst "You'd need a degree in rocket science" implies something is very tricky or unintelligible to mere mortals. The subject area is irrelevant in either case. Smile | :)

Straw Poll

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
