Keir recently came up with a really fun web app idea … so the whole team is taking a week off to build it. It’s going to be called ‘Matt’ and it’ll be built in Django on a popular API, include a desktop AIR app, and will be hosted on an elastic computing cloud (probably Flexiscale, but yet to be determined).
Those of you who have been following us for awhile will remember that we did something similar recently called Idea Week where we built HugMyMac.com. It was a blast and we’ve decided to do something similar again.
We’ve never built anything in Django, AIR or used elastic computing, so it’ll be fun to learn. It’ll also be a difficult but fun challenge for Mike to come up with a complete visual identity, site, web app interface and desktop interface – all in four days. Yikes.
We’ll be starting on June 30th, so I hope you’ll tune in for the adventure. If anyone is stopping by Bath, come on over to Carsonified HQ to say hello.
