It's official. Through exhaustive pair programming, there's a baby on the way! But it's still in development and needs a bunch more features before it can go live. Right now it's just some stubs! Baby's going to need:

  • 2 super excited parents

  • A heartbeat

  • Some nubby little arms and legs

  • A fully fused spinal cord

  • A whole lot of folate!

  • Lots of love

  • Lots of barfing, extreme fatigue, headaches, and hormones for mom.

  • Bones, organs, billions of brain cells

  • A functioning placenta

  • A secured staging environment for the next 7-9 months

  • An awesome doctor

  • Lots of preparation

  • Breasfteeding class!

  • An awesome doula

  • A name!

  • Clothes (though we're graciously accepting donations via our registry on Amazon if you'd like to see a baby dressed in adorable winter clothing)

  • A nursery

  • Birth!

Stay tuned as we develop, QA, and ultimately ship our tiny human to production January 1, 2017!

This new Baby model seems to have a bug. It can be easily reproduced--but only in particular regions such as Denmark and Iceland--just wake up and eat. Without fail, leads to critical amounts of regurgitation and unstable activity on its Parent relation. We'll need to deploy a fix pronto.

I think we're missing a callback on Baby

  parent.eat_ginger if parent.has_nausea?

Baby's heartbeat detected! 160 beats per minute! It works!

Baby definitely appears to be working! Legs and arms functioning! And I know singleton patterns are usually frowned upon, but this is going to be one awesome singleton we have in progress!

15-week quad screen results came back low risk for spina bifida and other neural tube defects, Down's Syndrome, Trisomy 13, and Trisomy 18! Good job, team!

It's a boy!

Can we add some more specs and possibly benchmark everything? The Baby class has definitely grown significantly and we don't currently have full code coverage.

Nice! Baby is shaping up great. And it looks like we're right on our estimated development schedule too. This is still looking good to ship on January 1, 2017!

Happy halfway there day, Tiny Human!

Happy viability day, Tiny Human!

Just some final QA left, I believe! Babby appears to be mostly self-sustaining at this point and should be able to ship on time.

A few days late, but what software release isn't? Shipped on 1/7/17!
