As a developer, I lose motivation on projects from time to time – and I think that’s the norm for a lot of web developers – you just get burnt out. You’d think that the high hourly wage would be a great motivator, but honestly, to me, it’s not – I want to work on cool stuff…something fun…something exciting.
For whatever reason, and without any monetary compensation, I dove in to GetSparks.org…because it is fun, it’s exciting, and I’m being helpful to fellow developers across the world. I’m not making any money on it, and honestly, I don’t care. I’m developing something that will eventually help thousands of developers out there, that use the Codeigniter MVC framework, to easily install & update the libraries they build their sites with. It will help them put together a site faster then before – and they will look like rockstars because of it!
I can make money other ways, but there aren’t too many opportunities to be a part of something that big – something that has taken off (in day 3 now) as GetSparks.org has already.
Fucking amazing – loving it right now.
