CS210 @ Work


This morning I had a wonderful 4 hour flashback to my early computer science courses while developing a small web application. Sure the application was in PHP instead of C, C++, or Java, but the code was beautifully simple. sscanf() to parse some text, assert() to test for exceptional conditions, and lots of print()/echo()s to finish it up.

It was quite a nice break after weeks of writing a functional spec. and other fun management tasks… ugh…

I guess if anyone in Illinois is interested in a PHP app that parses JULIE ticket e-mails, let me know.
