I did it!

Well, I did it, I’m two for two (one blog post for each week), let’s see if I can keep this up! Nothing really tangible to talk about this week, just have been doing a lot of research and thinking.

At this time, I’m leaning more towards a full rewrite of the application that powers Street Source. I started writing the code almost 10 years ago, surely it has some tech debt and I can probably move faster with a complete rewrite. What I may do to get updates out sooner is to have the legacy application power some functions of Street Source while the new application powers others.

In fact, this approach has been working for awhile. I kick myself when I think about the investment I made to learn Polymer. At the time, I don’t think anyone could have predicted the pace of new JavaScript framework development. What drew me in, was the concept of web components and I still think they are an important part of future web development but I could be wrong.

Any who, that is all for this week, hope you had a good Thanksgiving in 2021!
