A big step

23 Aug 2016 | Comments

Today was the day.

Today was the day a thing I worked on was open sourced. It’s done. It’s out there. My code. For everyone to see. It is like baring my soul to the world. It is baring my soul to the world.

You can’t possibly imagine how I feel. I am frightened. I am elated.

Will people find it useful? Will they use it? Will they look at my code and laugh at how stupid I am? Will they finally know for sure that I am a ruse? Will they whinge about how I am Not Doing Things Right?

And you know what? I don’t care. I’ve done my part and did the best I could.

(I lied. I do care. But I promise I’ll try to get over it as soon as I can.)

Be afraid. But still do it.

Massive thanks to the Domain Android team for the support, code reviews, suggestions, feedback, and putting up with my baking frenzies; and to Mike for the code contributions, and for helping me through the very arduous publishing process.
