Well, really, they didn't, 'cos most people couldn't care less. But I've finally started re-coding my websites, after a couple of year's negligence, into something resembling modern, object-oriented code. Critically, I've broken the back of the "does nothing yet" hurdle that was making it hard to advance in small steps.|
As yet it's classic TDD code, in that it's full of massive simplifications that I can enhance later. Plus I have the advantage of already having a full-populated site database as well as the old admin tools.
This time I'll be coding much more minimally (as per TDD) - what's needed now, not "what someone else might like later".
Much easier with a laptop that doesn't feel like you're peering into a letterbox to code.
