WhoDidITalkTo: working ReactJS code!

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.  As someone with superhuman empathy, it’s crushing to see those hurt microexpressions cross their faces when they realize I’m no better than Leonard Shelby:

A little less dirty than him, usually

So I’m trying to remedy that, by giving myself a tool I can use from my phone to capture and review salient details from each new personal encounter I have at all the events I slut around to.

It’s prototype stage, and I have no dreams of monetizing this (so many startups have tried and failed to make this kind of “personal CRM lite” work and failed), and it’s a long ways from being fully functional in the field.  Still, I’m having fun seeing just how far I can stretch my rusty front end skills *and* treat this like a real Product Management project for myself.

If you’d like to peer inside my jumbled mind, this isn’t a bad place to see for yourself:
