Everyone has to start somewhere

Today I found post from Ayende, called What I did on 2005. It’s a repository of links to posts from his blog in 2005 summing up the most important things he did. With posts like “Learned to use Subversion“, “Got into testing UI“, “published first OSS project“.

It got me thinking – to get good at something you have to start somewhere. No one is great right from the start, and everyone has to start somewhere.

I’m not sure why but I found it very positive.

  • This is the exact positive thinking that kept me working on Smarties 2008. If I wanted to look too far ahead and realise how much there was to do I would have given up the project on the first few weeks all together.

    BTW, version 1.9.0 now is released.
