Bugs

A software developer is bound to look for bugs and fix them. Sometimes they’re so dumb that when one realizes how many hours if not days were wasted for a syntax error or some null value somewhere in some statements.

I didn’t write a post yesterday for the fact that I was deep into integrating Deezer with Ma’DJ and during this process I lost many hours to realize at the end that I wasn’t doing anything wrong. The SDK only allows full playback on a desktop browser not mobile. I double or million checked my setup and created even more virtual environment to test but same result.

If I could take a lesson from this experience it’s that, when working with third party tools or APIs, one must be confident in their effort and educate themselves on the tool and its capabilities before jumping to conclusion on the inefficiencies & credibility of one’s solution.
