Today was long. We have been working for several months to build a new system that is more nimble than the company’s old one, but there are always growing pains. Tonight we switched one of our largest clients over, and it really exposed the bottlenecks when making these transitions.

As developers, it’s tempting to push for less customization, but part of what makes us valuable is our flexibility. So if I must choose, I’ll choose a little pain to give our clients a better product, and as we learn more, we will find the patterns to make our lives easier.
