Call it a “soft launch” but it’s a launch nonetheless. The website is now live, along with the store. An announcement was made on our Facebook fanpage as well as to my friends and family (feel free to spread the word if you’re reading this).
We’re selling an alpha version (build 0.12a) of PhotoMonkee for eight bucks (buyers are getting all of 1.x for $8) with the hopes of drawing in a few folks to give some solid feedback and help flesh out the last major bugs.
So, the easy part is done: writing tons of code and getting stuff to work on my development machine and our family computers. Now comes the hard part – fixing bugs and adding support for everyone else’s configurations!
It’s crazy to imagine that just about seven months ago I started learning a new GUI framework just out of boredom from my day job. It’s funny what you can do with a little time, effort and boatloads of support from your family.
Viva le e-commerce!
