Wow. I can’t believe it’s a month since I last posted to the blog.

I feel like this is me coming up for air after a deep dive, before heading back down.

 

Things have been a blur for me. Lots of code, lots of networking, lots of planning, some socializing.

 

In a wrap

The product (EventLo) is moving. Feedback has been great. Lots of people are excited to start using it.

The recommendation engine itself is still being assembled, but progress is looking good. EventLo is currently being hosted in the cloud on Amazon’s EC2 service, and I couldn’t be happier with my technology decisions. Special thanks to Mike at MongoDb and Shay at ElasticSearch. Those technologies have been pretty incredible so far. Also, Python, I love you.

Mentally, I’m still in one piece, something I know my parents and Shannon stay on top of. Thank you guys. Turns out solo founding is tough. More to come on that in the next post.
