Breaking eggs to make picklets | Picklet.net

Yesterday I noticed that the Picklet Store previews weren’t working. It’s happened before that my in-progress back-end development deployment breaks the current version of the Picklets app. A real engineer would have a) unit test coverage to catch the regression, b) monitoring of the live server that flags the service failure or c) both of the above. I have d) none of these, because I am not an engineer. I am a Software Artist, goddammit.

But it’s fixed now, so that’s cool, right?

On the off-chance that someone out there on the internet downloaded the Picklets app last week, tried to preview ‘bandits’ or ‘mummy’ noticed the failure and was curious enough about it to track down this blog, I’d like to apologise and kindly ask that they try it again, because it’s working. For now.

I broke it when I pushed some changes relating to what I call ‘fullsize’ content, which is part of the next release of the Picklets app. Which app will have a lovely new iPad interface, and be just generally a better picklet reading experience. The images look sweet. I can’t wait.
