Hey! Thanks for reading! Just a reminder that I wrote this some years ago, and may have much more complicated feelings about this topic than I did when I wrote it. Happy to elaborate, feel free to reach out to me! 😄
I just got back to work after a lovely, lovely break, and will get back to blogging Real Things soon. In the meantime, recording a milestone:
I had what I like to think of my "first" "release" of ScrabbleCheat. In a match of Scrabble without it, Madly Brilliant beat me by 97 points. I used it successfully for the first time (with her knowledge and permission) and beat her the following game by about 83 points. There's still tons of work to be done, but its core is there, certainly.
I learned a ton from writing it, and hope to create a few animations/blog posts about it in the near future. This flowchart to writing Good Code, by xkcd, is relevant, mostly in relation to the quality differential between the hacktacular client code and less hackey server code.
Thanks for the read! Disagreed? Violent agreement!? Feel free to join my mailing list, drop me a line at , or leave a comment below! I'd love to hear from you 😄
