I’m stoked to finally ship my first development project: http://favsi.com
If I haven’t told you already, Favsi is a site to share lists of random stuff. Things you probably wouldn’t post anywhere else. Like:
- Favorite cheesy ninja movies
- Favorite original NES games
- Favorite songs to sing in the car
Here’s a bit of background
By trade, I’ve been mostly a business guy *shudders* at startups, but have been working to change that for awhile now. I started learning Ruby a few times last year but had trouble sticking with it. It was tough to see how the stuff I was learning would turn into an actual product.
Early this year, I decided to jump straight to learning Rails. That actually really helped. The more defined structure and near-instant results of getting *something* running were huge for me. Building that momentum helped me finally start to understand how fun (and addictive) development could be. Rails is a gateway drug.
Favsi is not a huge technical achievement, but it’s been amazing for building my confidence to make stuff and dive deeper into programming.
