Build-A-Weekend Gets Off The Ground

Build-A-Weekend is the term I created for my goal to consistently work on weekend project ideas. The first two weekends after its inception did not go well. This weekend it finally gears up. A friend and I have an app idea, and we met up on Saturday to iron out some details. We picked a name, got a domain, built a minimal landing page, and linked the page to the aforementioned domain. Not too shabby.

Iā€™m the technical half of our pairing, so now I need to learn how to build the app. The challenge is invigorating.

P.S: I put some time into building an OCR Shiny app, only to discover this morning that I had already built one. That was weird.
