Doing it My Way

Last year, I started a small side project. I spent a few hours looking at various JavaScript Frameworks before deciding which looked best to use. I then spend a couple of days worth of work building a proof of concept of my program.

The framework certainly helped at first, however as I went on, I found it wasn't quite what I needed. There were workarounds, but each one seemed to make the program more complex. I was spending longer and longer looking at the framework documentation. Actual coding progress was getting slower and slower.

Today I gave up. I spent the day riping the framework out and reimplementing the functions in simple JavaScript. One day of work and it looks like nothing has changed. The final version looks the same as the one in the morning.

But there is one major difference -- I know how I will build the next parts.
