Dev Diary (3 Part Series)

1) Jottivity Dev Diary | Prologue 2) Jottivity Dev Diary #1 | Planning 3) Jottivity Dev Diary #2 | Dev Setup

This is the start of a personal experiment. I'm committing to an on-going series of quick blogs which will document my progress building a web application from the ground up, shipping it and hopefully monetising it.

This is part of my on going efforts to learn in public. I'm going to be sharing my successes, failures and lessons learnt as I go with no filters.

What am I building?

I'm building a journaling app and habit tracker which will analyse your mood using sentiment analysis and potentially other techniques. I'm calling the app Jottivity.

I've already built a proof-of-concept (POC), but I'm re-writing it from scratch with additional features and hopefully with a more maintainable codebase.


The main features for the minimal-viable-product (MVP) will be:
  • Offline support
  • Optional email/push notification reminders
  • Fun and simple UI/UX
  • Dark mode

What are my goals?

1) Learn about building and shipping a product to market
2) MVP by Christmas 2020
3) Launch on Product Hunt
4) Monetise

Follow me on this journey?
