Wall 220: Smudge

with 3 comments


New Apophysis has some strange stuff in it.  Whatdyall think?

I miss Noir Upton.  I need to find time for another installment.  Uppy is angry too.


I don’t want this to be an opinion O moment, but I’ve come to realize the importance of working in short spurts during development.

Six Essentials for Spurt Programming:

1) Modularize down to the most granular concept.  That way you can write chunks of stand alone functionality independent of other sessions.

2) If you feel stuck at any moment, stop and redesign.  Any significant roadblock is a design issue.  Rewrite.

3) End each session with a problem to mull over.  This is subtly different than #2.

4) Use your spurts as daily-build version control.

5) Test Driven Development works perfectly with Spurt Programming.  Add each module to your regression testing too.

6) Easy first, middle next, hardest last.  That holds true for many life lessons.

  2. I like this effect. Very pretty color. Reminds me of a kaleidoscope.
