After putting together a quick mock up of the site design I designed a quick logo and started working on the site.
After some consideration on what do build it in, I decided to build out the site with rails, and launch it on heroku. I haven't used rails much (as I come from a nodejs background), so thought it would be fun to play around with.
After a couple days of tinkering I finally launched startupdevelopers.io
It's only Atlanta focused for now, and I'm manually doing all of the additions to the site, but it serves as a great first step.
