Ok, so I ran into an old friend of mine who also happens to be in IT industry as a hardcore .Net Programmer. We talked for a while, most of it of our old times and then moved to whats going on in our lives right now. We both were surprised to hear that none of us is actually doing the things we always wanted to do (create a cool app and make lots and lots of money). So we decided to spare sometime off our usual hectic work and work on creating something cool, something to be proud of or something that would make someone’s life little easy 🙂
We both pitched some ideas to each other then finally decided on a simple idea of mine (which I wanted to do since quite a long time) that would save a lot of time and money for new and experienced freelancers. We talked about making a hosted application which will be tailored for Freelancers and freelancers only that will allow them (including me!) to manage, administer and analyze their freelance business. Basically a combination of Project Management tools and custom report generation.
The birth of FPMS (Freelance Project Management Suite)
We started jotting down some features and ideas that we can incorporate into this system, especially for phase 1 of the project. We decided to use .Net as the technical platform (he managed to convince me 🙁 !) and ajax for richer user interface.
The launch date
We already started development of FPMS long time ago and we expect to release beta 1 as an MSI (not hosted) which people can deploy on their servers with ease very soon.
Welcome to the Free world
