Fun With Extension!|
More programming boredom for y'all:
Last week, I mentioned passing the test of the first variant cart, wherein I took the back end for my new shopping cart and extended it successfully to create a whole new kind of cart with different rules and such. It went well. In fact, I was able to create a whole new thing from top to bottom, including all of the relevant administration tools and testing, in less than four days.
Yesterday afternoon, I started work on a whole different kind of shopping cart for another kind of product that we're not even selling yet. And lo! That went so quickly that I realized that I'd bug-tested my way all the way to the checkout process before I had checked the business logic with my boss. So what I'm held up by is not programming, which is going zoomingly fast thanks to me successfully doping out what objects could be extended properly, but actually waiting for input from the Powers What Be on how this should be done.
This makes me all girly inside. When they tell me, it'll be easy to implement. I am a happy, whooping weasel.

Honestly, I have no idea where to start with the sort of programming you are writing about but I'm always willing to join in with a good whoop.
Maybe I should get more friends...
You have mastered the cart, young grasshopper.
Next, you must master... The... uhh... I dunno. Perl?
Like a whooping crane, but with less feathers!

I have NO clue what any of that means, but if you're happy about it then that's a good thing, so...congratulations! (Okay, so I have a small idea of what it means, but mostly I'm just going with the general "whoo!" feeling here.)

+1 cart, 20xp
You know you've leveled up in a programming endeavor when changes you expect to take an hour take less than five minutes.
