I’ve been working on a tough database problem at work that involves triggers and recursive activity for a software system we’re building. I’ve been in the design phase for a few weeks now and today was the first day that I started on the actual coding. I’ve been “heads-down” in code all day, since getting into work at 7 AM. 8 hours later, the first crucial piece is working correctly. That is incredibly good news because it means the design is solid.
I still have a fair amount of work to do on this thing, but this was the first major hurdle and that it works as well as it does makes my life somewhat less stressful.
