Creating Docket

Feb 9th, 2015

Last year I bought a full year calendar to hang on my wall. It was a pretty great way for me to get at a glance information for what I had going on. Unfortunately I couldn’t find the one I bought last year, so this year I’m going without one.

However, what this inspired me to do, is build something to facilitate what the calendar provided, at a glance information.

I can’t tell you how often I ask Siri the same questions over and over.

What’s the weather?

What’s the forecast?

When is my next meeting?

I have decided to build myself an application that for now, I’m calling Docket.

Docket will provide me with at a glance information for my schedule, weather, and who knows what else I may add to it.

My plan is to blog about the interesting problems that I have to solve while building this application, in hopes that someone else can learn form my experiences, or even that I may help myself down the road.

So, without further ado. rails new Docket
