It’s been a couple of years since I’ve posted here. I’ve had a number of failed attempts at starting a software business, and eventually took a break from that idea after actually finding a well-paying software job that wasn’t horrible (on the bright side, my last project, though it failed utterly as a business, played a part in helping me get my current job).
Well, the lockdown happened, I got bored with all the extra time, and started on an open source project at least partially inspired by problems I’d faced at work over the last several years:
It’s a platform meant to serve as a foundation for a (small) organization’s data management needs.
I’ve been trying to push the thought that this could grow into a business (i.e., open-core, services, etc.) to the back of my mind (to not get ahead of myself) until I can see if it catches on or not. It’s fairly early in development, needs more documentation, etc., but I’d appreciate any feedback and/or advice - esp. on the how to promote an open source project front
