As you may know for almost over two years I am working on a project called Summon The JSON. The project main goal is to create flashcards for programmers.
I thought also it would be nice to be able to play the game like Stoneheart or Magic The Gathering. So I have added a game mode that can be played by up to four people with one deck.
I was considering at a time to start a Kickstarter or sell on Amazon. But both require too much time to set everything up. So I have created my own store.
Got first orders and amazing response from programming community. The community gave me also ideas for approximately thirty other decks they’d love to buy.
Soon a deck for Git will also be released. A SQL deck is also on it’s way soon to be announced. Approximately I am able to release one deck per month because I do it after hours of my day job.
Now it is the time, when I want to go next level with the project. By the end of the year I want to sell six decks per day. That is 2190 decks per year.
It does not seem to be much. But when I meet that goal, I will be able to focus full time on this project and many, many ideas I want to realize to provide the community with fun ways to interact with programming and technology.
I have always relied on the community, and the community made it possible to go so far. So now, in the face of the new, exciting and ambitious goal I also turn myself to you.
If you find the project idea interesting, spread the word. I never thought I’ll go so far, and now I believe the dream may come true!
