As a Java developer, I have spent most of my professional life working on the parts of software systems that most people don’t see. The so-called back-end of the software stack. But lately I have found myself wanting to branch out, and dabbling more in HTML and UI development.
A couple of years ago, this natural curiosity led me to start a new side project. My project was meant to be a hobby application that would only be used by me and a few friends, so I didn’t spend too much time thinking about a long term roadmap or requirements. The main goal was to get it working fast.
