From idea to deployment: How I built a web app while riding to work on the bus


Last year I spent my morning and afternoon commutes hacking away on a side project http://www.whenworksforyou.com using Groovy and Grails. Come learn about how I pushed myself over the “I should really find the time to…” hurdle and actually got something up and running. I’ll talk about some of the obstacles I encountered along the way and discuss some of the benefits of bringing a project to fruition.

Do you have a pet peeve you think you could solve with software? Are you working on a side project? Come share your experiences and be motivated (or help motivate others).
