Start Here!

What is your QUEST? Err, Project Goal?

Write a sentence or three about what you're going to write this month. You can change direction as the month goes on, but you need a starting point, and something to describe what you're going to *immediately* start coding on as soon as you finish posting here.

This way you've told people and have something to stick to - and something we can ask you about as it goes along. Note that this is not about shame, we're not here to embarass anyone into coding - it's about pride in an idea, in something you can run with and get cheered on for.

I also don't want anyone losing their jobs over this - especially if you find yourself thinking about this at work, step back and evaluate. Make sure you don't run afoul of your employee agreement, or impair yourself too much - work seriously, but not insanely. (On the other hand, if you can spin this as "professional development", more power to you!)
