You ever take a very long time to birth something small but ultimately, personally meaningful?
Me neither, but what I’m calling stage 1 of my ReactJS app is working to my liking.
WhoDidITalkTo is a personal work of love to help me remember all the wonderful encounters I have at Meetups and other such networking events. It’s painful for me to keep forgetting the awesome conversations I’ve had with people, and have to confess I don’t remember someone who I very clearly made an impression on.
