TIL: Partial Progress Makes You Feel Good

[data structures lab instructions] "[...] The particular case at hand is perhaps simple and you may start by implementing the whole class and test afterwards. However, you should learn to work on stages and to be able to perform testing incrementally as each state is worked out. In this way, you will be able to experiment partial progress that usually makes one feel good about what has been done."

Shoot he's absolutely right. Thing is I already implemented the whole class, so if anything, it'll make me feel bad about myself... x_x If only I'd read the whole thing first...

If you're reading this... please don't make the same mistake I did. Cheers.
