I try to do something new once a week. It doesn’t have to be useful, it doesn’t have to be something that I ever attempt again, I don’t have to try it for very long, and I certainly don’t have to be any good at it. I just have to try it.
A penny for your thoughts? It would make a perfect gift for Charon.
We’ve all made ’em. We’ve all regretted ’em. It seems to be the only true rule when it comes to estimates. Why is that? I can’t tell you. I can’t pretend to know. There are hundreds if not thousands of people far more suited to tell you. What I can tell you is their impact on Junior – albeit avid – Developers (forgive the use of a leveling term, while I despise them, they’re useful).
Okay, so this is far from what I expected my first post to be. I had many intentions of creating a post about something unrelated to my field, something that would stretch me beyond my comfort zone, something that would really push me as a person, not simply push me as a programmer.
I find myself going the other way with this one. I’m going to do a little write up about the little thread found over here in which there’s a little debate going on.
