And Then There Was Music...

My main project at AOL went live yesterday. Stunning success so far. The performance is better than expected, the data sources aren't crashing, and the pages look good. check out http://music.aol.com/.

The list of bugs that managed to make it to production is much smaller than I expected as well. It is hard to believe that it all just basically worked. I keep waiting for something major to blow up. Thing just never go "right" -- it is a law of software development or something. If things don't break atleast once in a release, than you missed something.

It has been publically released for over two days now, and the feedback has been positive. Congrats to my team.
