Darwin was right !!!


My evolution as a programmer !!!

We got into a mess recently. Happens to the best of us…

In development you can go too far sometimes without testing to see if it works. Then you have a rats nest of interacting problems to unravel. We rewound to the state of play four weeks back where we were manipulating existing tested objects and started again improving the way we handle them. So I took a lesson from evolution.

Biology works one step at a time making a change, testing it on the world and making the next change if it all survives. Doesn’t always get you to the most elegant design but it does inexorably lead to a solution that works!

Throwing away a months work was hard but we gained some insights…

Now I can put my sunglasses back on and look like a cool dude!
