Well the thing we wanted to make didn't exist. At least not a form we liked. That's the big reason for starting DropConfig.
We got started by just coming up with a rough idea of what how we wanted it to work. I firmly believe that having a big detailed plan is a water of time. You need to be able to react to changes and new information.
We chose technology that we knew and what we could do quickly. I have Node.js and react experience so we did that to be fast. We could have gone with any number of technologies and that'd be fine.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
