I don't really have any work related flops due to the fact that I started out as a developer early last year and haven't landed a job yet.

But I do have FML moments from working on my own projects 😆.

It happened just last week..

I have a personal blog built with Gridsome and Netlify CMS, I was using a very old version of Gridsome for the blog, about 2 minor releases with many patches behind, I wasn't tracking changes at the time so I checked and saw there was a new version, I updated and that was when the chaos started, the entire GraphQL layer had been modified, nothing worked at all and I only had the slightest idea about how GraphQL worked.. I tried pulling from the repository the starter template I use was hosted but there was a lot of merge conflicts 😂, the commit histories were so far apart! I managed to fix the conflicts but it still didn't work.. Thankfully I never pushed to the production branch. So I just deleted the entire project folder and cloned afresh.. I still haven't figured out a way to update it without breaking anything 😂😅

Oh ... wait for it. 😜 I think it's a rite of passage for every developer.

All the best for the job hunt!
