We just wrapped up a big ol’ project at work this week. In the end, it was a classic software development final push, complete with pizza at the office, and hallucinations from sleep deprivation.
Ah, good times.
We were only 1.5 months late, which for custom, one-off software is pretty good. IMO, it’s even better considering that it involved my learning a new programming language along with an utterly unfamiliar API. Oh yeah, there was that whole “write once, compile and test everywhere” cross-platform thing going on too… Still, despite the grotesquerie of the last week or so, it was still a lot of fun.
On a totally unrelated note, I will be entirely without internet access for the next 10 days or so. If your comments go into moderation, they’re going to stay there until I get back. On the bright side, during those 10 days, I should be able to maintain my current pace of posting. You won’t even notice.
