[QD] Getting back to practicing

With the long, tough hurdle at work finally reaching its end, the minute idle time gave me a bit of room to practice again. Its been a long while since I last drew anything I’d feel happy/content  off.

My doodle is not perfect but seeing that I made a lot of progress while practicing feels great.

There are still a lot more in my bucket list in the “Learn/Practice” category, here’s to getting more stuff done in it.

OneLinerFixGoesHere(string dafuq)

Bug fixing, it’s always part of development. And at times, depending on how your project defines them, they can range from things as minor as verbiage changes (mispelled “The” with “Teh”~~ hahahaha….. “orz), all the way to drastically changing an entire module’s functionality (to some, Feature Requests falls under Bugs as well)

One thing’s for sure, there are those that will leave you aghast at the amount of code you have to put in. At some point you might even feel that you are trying to do a lot just because you can’t find a solution after delving into 5-10 threads in StackOverflow. On the flip side, you might doubt your one liner fix after trying to debug a 3rd party (open source) plugin for an entire afternoon. Not to mention that bug fixes could spawn more issues if they are addressed haphazardly.

Not exactly going to suggest some guidelines for it since mine has been varied way too much. But for what it’s worth StackOverflow might have a solution or two for you to try out if you just search with the right keywords. Or you can try to be really specific with your inquiry, something along lines of~ “plugin feature issue with IE8”. (I crai all the time). Meanwhile, a one liner could have been a more convincing fix if the module has the proper documentation to elaborate on what it does.

In any way, bug fixing is probably the most annoying part of dev werkz. And as more paradigms/practices are introduced to minimize recurrence of bug issues, getting a list of bugs to fix kinda feels assuring that at least the application has some to be refined further.

Starting anew

Welcome~

I’ve been planning to reboot my blog/randomshits for a while now. I’ll try to make this a weekly thing, unless something nice pops out that’s worth writing about. I was a bit annoyed at how posts seem minute unlike when I was blogging way back in multiply, etc. I guess microblogging sites like twitter/plurk (and eventually,facebook) gave us this habit of just post/share content without adding a shred of your own reactions to it.

So, what to expect from this blog? At the top of my head~

  • Random musings about work or shits
  • Funny random shares worth saving (will try to minimize this since we all have FB for that already)
  • Insights and stories on games I’ve been playing.
  • Short and quick anime/manga rants.
  • A few random stories (probably set in this fictional world I’m working on before)
  • A bunch of doodles XD

So here’s for trying to will myself back to writing again
