I, like many, have ideas for products we want to build, yet find it hard to get moving.
For me, my latest idea has me actually moving forward with what I think is a good idea.
Not an idea that will make millions of people happy, or buy into it, but a simple product that will help in an area that I do not see being utilized.
I have decided I am going to try and document my challenges, and journey a bit in writing.
Please join me on the journey to create Small Robot The Product.
Challenge 1 - API or Full Stack
Currently I have been using Drupal 8 as an API (JSON:API) up until now, but now I have concerns that a fully decoupled Drupal 8 will not scale as I want it to. I am constantly wondering if I should change the from the API / Front end app approach, to something like full stack Ruby on Rails, Phoenix, or Laravel. The reason the thought to change is there, is that I see products like Shopify, TransmissionFM, Basecamp, and others, that are successfully using Ruby on Rails, and in their cases, not running as an API + Front end.
I will leave that challenge, as the first one I am really second guessing myself on.
