The Store is ready

After 30 hours of coding I finally implemented my own solution to integrate PayPal Express Checkout, I created an interface to the DB to handle products, I hacked PayPal landing page to create a fast and secure download. I put it all online and it worked surprisingly well.

I was starting my final beta test, filled with pride, when I decided to switch back to e-junkie.

So, bad news: a lot of work wasted (but I remember Eric S. Raymond’s third rule…).

But good news: I learned something new (because, hey!, it really works), I’ve a backup plan, I’m happy with e-junkie and now most of the work is done without the need of hours of more beta tests.
