I am a developer from a bit west of Boston.

1 Week on my own

28 Sep 2013

A little over a year ago, I quit my 9-5 regular job to get into the contracting & producing my own software business. As of a week ago, I stopped doing contracting for the next 6-9 months so I could focus exclusively on the software that I've created. It's a bit scary since I don't have those regular billable hours to go on anymore.

Over the past week, I've worked exclusively on ScrumDo and have made more changes during that week than at any other time in it's history. Here's a pretty picture showing commits over time:


I really feel good with how this next release is coming out. There are a ton of new features, and a lot of little things people have been asking for ages.

I've been using a lot of Coffeescript + Backbone for this work, and it's a workflow that's really starting to suit me. I'm going to try and start blogging about my experiences there regularly.
