Getting to launch for any sized project is tough and even if you’ve done it many times before it’s still tough.
I think this is especially difficult if it’s a personal project where you do not have any external pressure to ship as compared to a team project or enterprise piece of software – in the former the only “boss” that you have is you and you can call the shots including whether you want a “ship date” or none at all.
Context: I spent some time this morning answering someone’s question randomly online about “side projects”. I shared this epic blurb about my story of Desk App and I thought I’d capture the entire thing here.
The question was:
How many of you have developed a software project which is giving you decent passive income? In other words, what projects (that you did in spare time) have taken off and giving you a good monthly income?
Here’s my answer… enjoy.
As I’ve shared, I’m putting together version 3.0 of Desk and I’ve already started putting together the designs.
Please note, nothing that you see here (or in the near future) are “set in stone” quite yet as I’m working through a number of different concepts for the next version.
But, I’ll let you be the first to know when the images you see are canonical in nature!
