Coding in the Subway

Before joining my current company, I was determined to release my Android app, Bingle. Call it paranoia, but I didn't want any legal trouble, however remote. Just a day before starting work, I hastily tested and released my app, and headed off to visit a relative.

While on the subway, I realized that my app would throw an exception if the device wasn't connected to the internet. I immediately booted up my laptop and fixed the bug. After the train ride, I located the nearest Starbucks, connected my laptop to the wifi and released a new APK file.

Lesson learnt- don't test hastily. Also, I should've looked at my tickets on Bitbucket before releasing my app.
