In 1992 I considered myself as the best programmer in the world. In the justification I can tell only that then I only graduated from college (it was even before emergence of the Internet) and there lived in Boulder, the State of Colorado, earning additionally in the small companies – I read for a great luck an opportunity just to hear about other programmers, meeting them.

As a result I got acquainted with the person by the name of Bill O'Neill who employed me as the programmer working under the contract. He created the company with quite non-original name Computer Research &Technologies, and we began to work on different tasks together.

We were engaged in development of CRUD-applications [Create, Read, Update, Delete – version of the application with basic functions of creation, viewing, updating and removal of entries in the database – a comment perev.] for business on Visual Basic and FoxPro under Windows 3.1 (and sometimes under DOS as had a presentiment that the modern graphic interface will remain with us for a long time).

Bill was the first professional programmer with whom I ever worked. Yes what here to say, he was the first programmer in general with whom I ever worked. It issued me the technical project, on it I wrote the program on Visual Basic and then gave it on check to Bill. After that he quietly explained to me that my code is no good.

Iterations and balance between quantity and quality of functions


Jason Beard

Recently one company has sent the check with payment to the promised compensation to my old address? and already not for the first time.? These are their problems, and they have to be engaged in it!?? my wife dissatisfied with the events shouted. Though I too have been upset, but I could not but sympathize with team which had to resolve this question.

When users come across bug or when some functions of application confuse them and take away from them time, their trust to your product decreases. Besides, load of support desk as a result increases. Can imagine holes in bucket: the big reduce trust quickly, and it is a lot of small? slowly and gradually. Anyway, when the trust is undermined, not to return it any more.

Even in spite of the fact that we constantly put all the forces in our application, MailChimp is not insured from bugs. And I am ready to recognize, what in ours? bucket? were both big, and small? holes?.

Creativity and frontend


Jason Bierd

We often wrote to UX Newsletter about our template library and how she helps us to carry out fast iterations and to provide coherence of work of MailChimp. Development on the basis of the existing patterns is a little similar to game with Lego: when you begin work, you precisely know how these or those elements have to communicate among themselves – but sometimes it is useful to break pattern and to create unusual solution. I would like to share several examples of how such approach has been implemented in MailChimp.
