I’ve often complained that web development rarely gives you the joy and elation after turning in a big project—there’s always something else to do. And with the web, it’s always at your fingertips to do—no waiting until you get back called back to the job site.
We’ve spent several weeks developing a mobile app, and last night, we submitted our first iPhone app to the app store. Oh what a great feeling. I spent most of the week scouring the code for potential bugs and memory leaks. In the software world, it’s not as easy to make sure everyone gets the latest update like it is in the web development world, so you better make sure all the major bugs are squashed.
All of that pressure, though, ends up giving you a huge release once it’s all done. When I finally hit the ‘submit application’ button, I felt great.
