Programmathon VII Day 2, Day 3
Day two was pretty busy, so I didn’t really get a chance to take any pictures. Towards the end of the day, I was definitely feeling a bit high strung. I’m goal oriented and I abide by the saying: say what you will do; do what you say. This doesn’t fly so well with everyone I guess. Certainly, sometimes you do underestimate the task at hand and you simply have to live with “good enough”, but this just causes all sort of anxieties with me. But regardless, we made some really good progress; got lots of big pieces working.
The hard work contiuned on day 3.
Man, just look at everyone hard at work. Damn, look at that concentration on Jim’s face. That’s what I like to see.
Dave (front right) was giving a quick presentation on some of the ComponentArt libraries. I’m not a big fan of these things (I prefer the raw web services and AJAX.NET), but I guess not everyone wants to abandon the ASP.NET model so quickly.
We had lunch in the office because we were all in the groove. But I hear it’s Thuy’s birthday tomorrow and we’re heading to Hooters ;-).
Gray cells continue to churn after lunch.
For some reason, the thought occurred to me that I hadn’t had a corn dog in, oh I dunno, 10 years? Not only did we end up with any old corn dogs, these were freshly battered! Pretty awesome with some squeezed lemonade. You may have noticed the supersized drinks (in this case, lemonade). But you really can’t begin to imagine how much caffeine these guys consume on a daily basis. Rare is the day that Brady or Brad will wander into the office without their 64oz. diet Coke in the morning (and then continue to order diet Cokes throughout the day..amazing that they sleep at all).
Still more work to do. Day 4 awaits!
