I’ve been promising you an update on my pet project, Rubberduck, for quite some time now. I apologize for taking so long to get around to it. Both the project and this blog tend to come last in the grand scheme of my life, so it sometimes takes me some time to get around to things. I’m afraid that may be more or less the theme of this post.
I came across a post on Programmer’s Stack Exchange yesterday that really irked me. It took me a little while to really digest what upset me about it, but I think I understand now. This developer was asking for more reasons to back up his claim that he should move his solution from VBA to C#. That in itself is fine. As I stated in my response, I understand his desire to move his solution to C#. I wish I could move all of my projects to the .Net platform myself.
No. Wanting to move to a more modern technology was not my issue with his question. My problem was with how he acted like working in an old technology gave him a pass on being a professional.
I’ve been fairly absent from this blog lately. I’ve been busy working on a new release of Rubberduck and, honestly, there are only so many hours in a day. More importantly, there are only so many concentrated thoughts to go around in 24 hours. So, I apologize for being gone for so long. I hope you can forgive me when you see the results. I’m really excited about our next release. There’s some really awesome things in there. You can download the pre-release now if you’re interested. There are a few kinks to work out, but things should be stable very soon.
To be truthful though, that project is the last thing I want to talk about right now. Rubberduck has become an obsession. There have been so many early mornings and late nights that I can’t possibly count them. There will be more. Many more. We’re only getting warmed up… and I’m going to talk about it anyway. It is an obsession after all. Like any addict, I just can’t let it go.
