re: Finding Ideas for Programming Side Projects VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

I like the idea of automating your life. That shower idea is great - most of us wouldn't think to do it. I sometimes scribble down a note when it hits me that some process is becoming a thorn in my side, and then I'll try to solve it later.

Like the online bookmark service I use which doesn't sync to your browser - I realized there were some bookmarks that I was constantly looking up, so I wrote a chrome plugin that syncs everything under specific "tags" to the local bookmarks bar. It pushed me to learn more about javascript, creating extensions and submitting to the chrome store - and I got to write a few blog posts about something new (to me, anyway 🙂).

 

Great stuff Grant! Cool project too!

I also automated my life with a chrome extension project recently... producthunt.com/posts/preach (a little less serious than yours, perhaps :P)

 

It was a lot of fun to make!
