Day #1 – the kickoff & an introduction

Topher @toadally

I’ve been toying with building a new saas project for a while, and been putting it off for [reasons] for a while now.

Back in the spring I setup a small static site and needed to add a form to it. You’ve all felt that pain, right? You either paste in some horrifying code from a 3rd party service, or spend the time to setup form handling. Neither of which is a fun task, and both have signifiant drawbacks.

I found myself wanting a form service that would just take whatever I give it, and handle it as it’s told, store the results, and send me an email when a submit happens. Tall order, right? It shouldn’t be.

So that’s where the idea for FormCaster came from. It didn’t have a name until about 15 minutes ago, just an idea.

I decided today to dig in and get this thing built, but then looking at my schedule I had so many reasons to put it off, or why it wouldn’t work. But really, it’s jut about making the time right?
