It was a discovery that would change my life, professionally and otherwise, much for the better. Ironically, the very thing, which got me into Drupal in the first place (e.g., online side projects) had became one of the unfortunate casualties in more recent years as my professional Drupal activities increased. Sure, I had little projects - went to meetups, cons, made some patches here, contributed this there - but building my own online site/service from the ground up with the intention/hope of achieving something big, that went by the wayside.</p> </div></div></div><div class="field field-name-taxonomy-vocabulary-1 field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Categories:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><a href="/categories/drupal" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel">Drupal</a></div><div class="field-item odd"><a href="/categories/web-apps" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel">web apps</a></div><div class="field-item even"><a href="/categories/saas" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel">SaaS</a></div><div class="field-item odd"><a href="/categories/javascript" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel">JavaScript</a></div></div></div> Tue, 19 Mar 2013 05:17:11 +0000 Caleb Gilbert 126 at http://rocket.local http://rocket.local/blog/side-project-part-1-getting-started#comments
