Submitted GitHub Marketplace Application

Alex Karezin @javadiagrams

After months of work (and 15 days behind schedule :/ ) we have finally submitted SourceSpy GitHub Marketplace application. Now wait and see... Lessons learned and future advise:

  • Need better planning (why is it so difficult...?)


  • Keep Reid Hoffman's quote on the wall: "If you are not embarrassed by the first version of your product, you are shipping too late"

Wish us luck.

      It looks like they have to review the application first. That will take some time.
