    Hi, Helena. Thanks for doing this AMA!

    From start to finish, roughly how long did it take to ship Techies? What was the process like? (from the inception of the idea to sharing the first iteration of the site)

      Hey Daniel!

      I announced it on Jan 5, and shipped it March 4, so just about 3 months on the dot.

      The process, in one word, was insane. That said, I do well with sprints and I'm not sure if I would have done it if I hadn't set some hard constraints and publicly committed to it. I don't regret doing it all in three months, but I also wouldn't recommend it if you care about your general health or well being. I'm gonna post a gigantic process post soon that details every bit of the process from start to finish - hopefully other folks will find it helpful when creating a project of their own.
