How many rewrites?

time to read 1 min | 122 words

I am working on a pet project for a while now, it is fun, and it is nice, but... takes a look how many times I had to rewrite it:

  1. <-- final version branch
  2. <-- with Beckley DB
  3. <-- FireBird
  4. <-- Sqlite
  5. <-- custom persistence
  6. <-- initial playground

That was... interesting.

And I do think that there is value in restarting so many ways, because now I have a much better internal structure (and external one as well :-) ) .
