So recently I’ve taken it upon myself to complete a “personal/pet” project. It’s a project we’ve discussed countless times as a team over the past year — but other priorities have always pushed it to the back (way back of our priorities). Recently, I knew I’d have a few days in between things we were working on, so I took this project on as a personal challenge.
The inspiration behind this project comes from a few vendors we use already: 37Signals, MailChimp and Wufoo. See, we use SaaS based software from each of these firms today for various business functions. Besides their obvious benefits busienss wise, there was one reason why I even tried their offerings. That reason is the crux behind this pet project.
I’ve been pretty vague about the project thus far and will apologize as I will continue to be for the remainder of this post. See, I’m not quite ready to reveal it yet. I just completed development this morning on the last piece and will now ship it off for testing. Once testing is complete (hopefully within a week), I’ll then divulge.
So until then, take this quick 1 question survey and let me know what you think this project will be. http://shugo.wufoo.com/forms/what-will-this-project-be/
Once you do that, check out the full list of ideas submitted (if it’s blank, can you submit the first idea so I don’t look like a HUGE loser) – http://shugo.wufoo.com/reports/ricks-pet-project-ideas/
P.S. If you are among the two people who know what it is already, can you keep it quiet for me?
