I have a few blog posts queued up that relate to the product I’m working on for my day job. The blog posts are generally product-specific and so (I feel) aren’t appropriate for posting on this (my Los Techies) blog as it would be crass marketing. I think that you, dear reader, did not subscribe to this feed to be marketed to, so I won’t offend you like that. If, for whatever reason, you’re interested in what I’m working on, or what my company is working on, you can check out my employee blog, or all the Dovetail blogs.
Having said all that, I just posted a recent post that I thought contained a lot of non-product-specific topics that might benefit you when thinking about problems of customizations, upgrades, frameworks, etc. So if you can overlook a few mentions of my product, I think the rest of the blog post may be beneficial to you. You can read it here: Upgrade-Safe Customizations. Please let me know if you disagree with my assessment.
