Marcus Blogs!

Marcus Baker (author of SimpleTest php unit testing software) now has a blog at Right out of the gate he has several thoughtful and insightful essays reminiscent of his many similar posts in the Advanced PHP Programming forum on SitePoint.

His post Design Drool brings up some of what I have only been vaguely hinting at in some of my posts, the mindset of a good programmer. Marcus does a great job of summarizing our own internal hidden agenda…and he was spot on with that old sprite based spaces invaders game :) . Even brought up the memories of the first program I was paid to write: a scheduling program for a machine shop. Boy was that ever a nightmare to try to cram both the BASIC source code and the data into 64k 😯 !
