It’s been two months since the last update. I went on vacations in January and came back this week, so sadly I wasn’t able to do any work for nearly a month. I almost finished UI for creating estimates and started working on template management. Basically, the user will be able to create an estimate or invoice template in HTML with embedded CSS using a base template, or edit and adapt the templates that will ship by default with “The Application”.
So with the finish line moving further away to May (I’m being optimistic), I’m approaching a year of development. It’s not bad, but it’s got me a bit nervous, because I know it could slip even further. Reid Hoffman said “If your are not embarrassed by the first version of your product, you’ve launched too late”. I agree with the sentiment. The thing is: I don’t want to be too embarrassed. I want an MVP that satisfies me as a client of my own product. So my expectations are a little higher. As it is right now, the UX could be improved but I’ll leave that for version 1.1.
