‹prev | My Chain | next›
I finally decided what my chain should be.
"Don't break the chain", in case you are not already aware, is a motivational tool attributed to Jerry Seinfeld. The concept is that every day you produce something related to your craft. Each day you do this, you put an "X" through the day. After a little while, you have a chain of X's and you begin to be offended at the idea of breaking the chain.
The end result is not the chain. Rather it is the skills acquired and honed by building up that chain.
Jerry's craft is comedy. Mine is software development.
I have decided that my chain is going to be converting my personal site (EEE Cooks) from Rails 2.0 to something running on CouchDB.
Moreover the X's are not going to be on a calendar that only I can see, but they will be on this blog. Every day until I have EEE Cooks running on CouchDB in production, I will blog about my latest experience in the effort.
The point is not to make EEE Cooks better than it already is. The point is an excuse to practice my craft. And to become a better blogger while I'm at it.
