I moved the decimal point one place to the left and now I have a version:
I am version 4.7
Apparently by the time I'm version 6.5 my codebase will be a little bloated.
On another note, this age subject has come up a few times:
Programmers: Before you turn 40, get a plan B (2009)
Silicon Valley’s Dark Secret: It’s All About Age (2010)
I also wish I could copy paste this comment I already wrote:
While I might miss specific events or groups I was part of in the past but I never wish to go back in time. It takes so much time and effort to build yourself and your life moving forward that going back would be a waste.
Thanks for the idea! It has solved a long time puzzle :)
To preserve versioning semanticity, gotta habitually push out new code. Gotta strike the balance between squashing bugs, polishing UI interactions, testing new features, and self-refactoring. Gotta avoid feature creep, observe deprecation roadmaps, ensure social network integrations are in order… all those routine things.
