This past month, I spent a lot of time on the administrative mechanics of setting up a new company: incorporation, registering for tax accounts, opening a business bank account, getting a municipal license, and so on. I put that off until 2020 because my move from Germany will make my 2019 taxes complicated enough. Also, I wanted to spend more time figuring out the tech before starting a company on top of it.
The company is named Zigtrig Software Inc.
I used Anvil to develop a toy web app. I wanted to develop an app that helps the user create some graphics, so I decided to make an app that generates mazes. Sometime in mid-January, I shared a prototype app online with some of my family and friends, to get some feedback. There’s a screenshot below.
I found that Anvil is good for quick prototyping but I decided not to use it in production, mainly because it’s proprietary, which means they could suddenly increase the price or go out of business, and I don’t want that kind of risk.
I took the maze app offline because I didn’t want to continue paying for Anvil.
Thanks to everyone who has given me feedback so far.
