Built In Two Miraculous Months

Some unbelievable but true facts about the development process, from Dr. Ernie:

  • Incorporated on September 11th, 2014 (“Interdependence Day”)
  • Quit Apple on September 26th after 17 years in Product Marketing
  • Coded from start to finish in 70 days (October 1st)
  • $20,000 budget, six person-months of effort (including website & marketing)
  • My first JavaScript app and second production app
  • Recorded 250+ live coding sessions during development
  • The final product is less than 4300 lines of CoffeeScript
  • Worked 7-hour weekdays plus a half-day on Saturday, to protect family time*

*Though I occasionally woke up early for some extra coding in the last month.
