Results of the weekend code camp

Well, it wasn't the slam dunk progress I was hoping for, but I also can't say that it wasn't productive. My goal was to make some decent progress on the next version of CoasterBuzz.

As it turns out, I pretty much spent my time on just one page and around 400 lines of code (and by code I mean C#, not HTML, which isn't code at all). This page doesn't seem like it's all that complicated, but throw in enough use cases and you realize that it kind of is complicated.

The good news is that the hardest part is probably done and ready to go. I think I can safely move forward now by breaking off some of the use cases to another page. That will make life a lot easier. I would say that I generally feel pretty accomplished.

I don't have any time frame in mind, still, but at least I have some forward momentum. Tonight I'm just stopping because I can't do it anymore. I'm looking forward to experimenting with some graphical looks, though my CS3 still doesn't ship for another week. I really wish I could find a designer that I like who could do some work for me.

Congratulations on staying focused enough to make progress. That has to feel good.

Hey Jeff, I visited Pointbuzz for the first time in a while and checked out the new Fireworks and Maverick Media day galleries. Since it's been quite some time since I've checked in over there, I'm probably working on old news. But...

I love the new format for the galleries!! Being able to see the photos in tiles is (to me) a huge improvement over the previous set up.

Yeah, we like the new photo arrangement too. I spent a lot of time on that code base, but it'll totally be worth it because it's so ridiculously reusable. I want to put it here, eventually.
