Topic: Timint - a blog about the creation of a Rails app

Hi all,

I'm in the process of creating a Rails app and thought I'd share the steps of this project and things I'll learn through a blog.

Beginners or people trying to create a Rails app might find some interest in this blog.

URL is http://timint.wordpress.com

Timint will be a simple time tracking tool which should be released in less than a month now due to Rails great rapid development abilities.

Thanks.

GOOD NEWS it's OPEN. http://www.timint.com

If you need to have a timesheet really fast and track your time, Timint is the way to go.

Thanks to all the people who subscribed to the beta.

Hey!  Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

I can't look at the app now as I'm on my phone but will have a look a little later.

Do you think it will be possible to share how long it took you to complete the project? What kind of skill level were you at before you started? Was it your first project?

Sorry for the barrage of questions, I'm looking for some context of the "rapid devlopmet" that you get with ror. I'm think this will be useful information for the community to see what is possible by someone in different timescales. In fact, someone should make a web app just for this purpose!

You're welcome.

I'm developping with Ruby on Rails for some years already and Timint is not my first project.
Actually, the project is not "finished" but is production ready, I followed the "release fast" principle.

I started Timint approximatively 2 months ago and dit it on my free time.

Ruby on Rails helped a lot for fast prototyping and I was able to launch a beta 1 month later.

Usability, design, domain rules, features choice, etc.. took a non-negligible time too.

I'll continue to share as I add features.

Hope this helps.
Feel free to ask other questions.
