Wow it’s been a while. A lot of things happened but to cut the story short, I got sidetracked with a bunch of stuff. What matters is I’m back and ready to get this going.
From my last post, I described the kind of product I’m looking to build. So now I decided on something to work on. I’ve been thinking about it for awhile and have actually already started doing something but nothing substantial yet. At this point, I think it’s too early to talk about the idea but here’s what I can say about it: It’s something related to what I’ve been doing on client projects which is in the real estate business and it will be for the local market.
I’m not really sure how this will turn out. I hate to admit it but I haven’t done much market research. It’s not the right way but I want to build it anyway. The good thing about it is that with simple modifications, I can repurpose it for a different industry. I also feel there’s always money to be made in the real estate space.
So I’m giving myself three months to build and launch the version 1. I already have a domain, Twitter and some wireframes. I’ll be using CakePHP as development framework, Git for source code management, and Unfuddle for project management, issue tracking and code repository.
I haven’t decided on the hosting but for now I’ll be using my shared hosting account on Dreamhost where this site is also hosted on.
I’ll do my best to post updates on my progress and everything I learn, the problems I faced and solutions I come up with.
