First of all, I’d like to say I’m so exceptionally proud of what you and the Corilla team have achieved, David.
I remember when we talked in the kitchen at Red Hat and you said you would take the PressGang concept and commercialise it. I had no idea then that what was largely (solid, but) alpha software used by Brisbane’s…
This is a great idea!
You have to be in the right organisation to give the team “permission” to do this.
You need to have a dev team that can autonomously deliver while you’re in you track.
And you need to trust them. Otherwise you will be pulled back into the weeds.
This is an excellent tactic in a number of ways.
Like John suggests, it gives you space to parse the info and stop your lizard brain from fucking you up.
But it also makes sure you simply didn’t understand what the person was saying.
The thing that that strikes me with the before and after is just the lack of indentation. That could be another clue that your code needs a good scrub.
Great deconstruction, Josh. As a non-coder it made sense. Winning!
I really enjoyed reading how the team made this browser based pinball experience.
It goes to show just how hard realising a good digital pinball experience actually is, so I have greater respect for studios that are making their own bespoke titles like Zen Studios.
