I often develop an application entirely myself. But did I really?
I feel strange about that claim and never know when that is true.
I mean I designed it, coded it, but I used XYZ plug-in. Can I still claim that I did it all myself even though I didn't create the plugin I used?
Consider this conversation?
ME: I designed and developed this app entirely myself.
Other: Cool, how did you program XYZ part?
ME: I didn't program that part I used XYZ plugin.
Other: So you didn't really program it ALL yourself than did you?
I mean if I must give them credit for the plug-in I used, then do I have to give the language authors credit for the language I used and the IDE authors credit as well? Where do I draw the line?
This is just something that always crosses my mine as soon as I am about to take full credit for a project, and was wondering others opinions on the matter.
