How many times have you tried to write all your code into the IDE all at once to see how far you could get with compiling it in your head to play through how it would work before you actually hit F5?
I’ve gone pretty far and then I reach a point where I want to just keep going, I don’t want to know the real-time result because what I’ve played through in my head is guaranteed to be much better than what’s going to happen.
In my head it is working beyond measure, it’s incredible, it takes a licking and keeps on ticking.
Eventually I hit F5 and see where we get to and then I remember why I don’t do this very often.
Bugs are flying up everywhere and I have to go back and recompile over and over and over again.
Eventually it gets to that point in my head where everything is perfect.
