Standing on the Backs of Cockroaches

I love Open Source. It’s great that someone has already solved so many of my problems for me; complete with bugs I might have written when solving the problem for the first time.

  1. Outline work to be done for Feature X.
  2. Begin work on Feature X.
  3. Find bug in some other library.
  4. Fix bug.
  5. Return to work on Feature X.
  6. [repeat step 3]
  7. [repeat step 4]
  8. [repeat step 5]
  9. [...]
  10. Done!
