Finished MVP - Code Challenges (Python/JS/C#)

Mark Snyder @MarkS2

So I started working on this idea about 8 months ago. After 2 months of coding I burned out because I didn't have anything useable and wasn't even sure what it was supposed to be.

After a few months of not thinking about it I picked it back up and drastically simplified. I took 3 pieces of paper and sketched out the simplest UI implementation I could come up with. The result was something I could implement in 2 weeks (and did).

I'm pretty excited - it's raw, but it solves the core problem I was aiming for. Now excited to get into promoting and getting feedback.
