End of the Year Development Thoughts

SJC SJC Profile: SJC

As year 2007 closes, once again I find myself staring down hours of work begining with the closing schedule(s) of clients for whom I have been busily preparing updates which will be put into service with the start of the new year.  The update programs have been tested and re-tested, methodology for accomplishing the changes have been outlined and preparations for a long evening have begun.  It seems that I have been through this cycle countless years, the ultimate of which was the preparations for the year 2000 of course — remember that?  It seems so long ago now!

Most of my clients are on a calendar year end, and while only a percentage of them require my services at year end, tasks for those that do tend to be complex – the result is that for the once-a-year complexities they would rather “have the professional” do it.  I’m not sure how many other developers experience this – but for me it has been quite common.

For those of you reading this who celebrate the New Year my best wishes go out to you all for a safe and prosperous New Year.  Until then, it’s back to the grind for yours truly.
