A simple way to manage your finances with forecasting. We should automate our money, not make it automate us.
Finances are hard. It's one of the first adulting things everyone has to wrestle with. So, let's make it easy and automate it. Over the course of several years, my wife and I have tracked our finances using a forecasting method and had done it all within a spreadsheet. The time came where I wanted to take this concept and make it mobile using serverless architecture and clean design.
The idea is to take what we know: the transactions that are predictable like mortgage and insurance and just keep track of them against the account balance. Then take transactions that aren't predictable and try to predict them using seasonality analytics. Does your electric bill go up in the summer? Let's predict what it would be and try and account for it.
Right now, it's just me, but I could use some help if you're willing. I've never truly done a serious open-source project before so I'm not sure where to start to make sure it's successful. Any tips?
If you're interested in pitching in, sweet. The most I can offer is just some exposure to cool things like serverless architecture, multi-platform development, clean design, and a LOT of opinions.
I have some issues created now to outline some features, but I could use some help in documentation, building out the API on AWS, and then the beast that will be the client.
