Giving Thanks

by Jeff Langr

December 01, 2008

Coming back from a long Thanksgiving weekend is always tough. This year it’s tougher, as I had eight guests stay for four days and thus didn’t keep up to date on things.

I realized I didn’t properly offer up thanks during our chaotic Thanksgiving dinner. So here are some of the things I’m thankful for today.

  • Test-driven development, a technique that reinvigorated my interest in programming and made it far more enjoyable and effective for the past ten years.

  • The shrinking of the international community through technology.

  • People like Tim Hunter who provided much-needed laughter in this industry. I love spoofs.

That’s it. Nothing earth-shattering here.
