JAPH. (That's right -- I'm not Really Inexperienced any more.)

I'm not just here, I'm here [perlmonks.org], and here [javajunkies.org] too, I ramble randomly in my philosophical blog [blogspot.com] and my other blog [blogspot.com]. Soon I'll come in a convenient six-pack.

Dropped A Pebble

[ #27650 ]
I heard a story once about a monk who needed to cross a river. So, every morning, he'd go out and drop a pebble in the river.

After years of this, he could walk across the accumulated pebbles.

Tonight...the first object constructor method for the project.

One pebble.

I can't seem to write test-first in the very beginning, so what I've done in the past is write a very, very small amount of code -- like, a single object specification with a single method -- and then write the tests I would have written for that, and then write some more, and then write code to make those tests pass, etc.

Fingers crossed.

  • Beware of the current!

    You wouldn't want it to carry all your peebles.
    • It's okay -- to prevent just such a disaster, these pebbles are constructed from a four-wheeled motor vehicle previously owned by an Italian plumber. Water can't sweep away my special Mario Van Peebles, because they're heavier. :D

      You are what you think.
  • And how old was he at the time he crossed, 36 million years old?
