bi-polar coding, well maybe just crazy… :)

Coding while bi-polar is a challenge–No it’s not! The day consists of beautifully written well laid out logical byte code prose–It’s really just crap, but I guess the interface works so screw it! Well It does look pretty good under the hood…

That function needs a for loop–Nope it totally needs an each. Well if I use JQuery, but raw javascript is way cool too…But then again Mootools is really good too. No, they all suck… Coffeescript! That’s the way to do it…Wait, Dart. Naw. Back to javascript.

Everything sucks. Nothing works. Deadlines are near… A walk, caffeine and ten minutes later: Not bad, all I need is a line of code and we’re good… refresh: F#@! Everything sucks…

New Job new 99 problems

I Started a new job a few months ago. It’s been fun, challenging, daunting, brutal, eye opening and a growth opportunity. Coding the front end of things is pretty exciting. Sitting in a creative meeting hearing all the cool stuff designers want their specs turned into is always a, “that would be awesome! No idea how I’m gonna do it, but let’s get it going!” kind of experience. TDD is no joke. ┬áIn the past I’ve encountered bugs and squashed them, only to find they had already spawned 99 new little ones. Testing from line 1 makes your hair stay in place… JSLint == awesome!
