I've waited too long before committing to this.
I've always dreamed about what's like to build a community, a movement of people, around an initiative.
Turns out, the best way to understand, is to start doing something.
Planting the seed that is needed to let an idea find its first roots.
The history of this website have intrigued me, how it came to be, where it started, why...
I find myself wondering a lot during my days, thinking about projects I would like to start, things I would like to create, experiences I would like to experience and, most of all, how could I share all of this with someone else.
Now it's time to stop thinking.
This post it's pretty much a letter to myself. A recap, a black and white (depending on the theme you're reading 😂) statement that I've to write down, to last.
It's the beginning of something, a change.
Among all the ideas and goals I've, somewhere I had to start.
Splitbit is what I came up with 😂, an "expense" manager between friends.
I would like Splitbit to be a Flutter project where beginners and learners can make their first steps with open source, maybe even development.
This project could become something that can have a great impact on many others. On the people that will eventually decide to work on it, on the people that may have the chance to try and use the thing that has been created.
This, I think, is a great way to start, a project, an idea, a commitment that could involve another person, just like me, that share the same spirit. Isn't it at the foundation of a community?
But, beside an idea, what are the next steps? How do you meet and stay in contact with developers?
Just a Slack channel? Is that really what it's all about?
Another mailing list?
What are your thoughts?
I want to share my journey, so keep in touch 😄
