3 months ago, the reaction would be "Yeah, let's go to Disrupt SF!", now it has changed to "Holy shit, it's next week..."
We've now got a solid platform, with an upcoming iOS app that we have always wanted to build reaching launch date, and (positive - woot!) feedback flooding in from beta users and early adopters. In the past 4 months, I have written a lot of thousands of lines of code in at least 5 different programming languages, and currently on an over month-long GitHub streak with 70 pull requests within the last 7 days alone. Recruiters who spams me with LinkedIn messages about "new exciting challenges", please take note: if something can pique my interest, it needs to be that Esplorio-level challenging and addicting.
There is still a crazy amount of work to do. The more we get finished, the more new stuff there is. However, it is safe to say that I am having the time of my life right now, and the best is yet to come.
Let's hope all the long hours and all those "Okay, I'll stay back to finish this, maybe one fewer day/night out/game..." moments will eventually pay off. See you again soon, San Francisco.
If you are going to attend TechCrunch Disrupt SF 2015, you can find us showing off all the awesome things we've built in the Startup Alley on the 21st Sep. Otherwise, I'll stay in town with my team until the 30th if you fancy a catchup
PS: Fun fact. While I'm writing these lines, Esplorio servers are under attack by Chinese hackers
