Kadople was incorporated for the primary purpose of doing software development consulting work. I also wanted to leverage the business entity to create and market some cool apps.
What exactly will those “cool apps” be, and what user problems will they solve? Those are the questions I’m still pondering. But most likely it will be something for the Microsoft Windows platform, since that has been my specialty as a coder for the past 15 years. Perhaps it will be something on the up-and-coming Windows 8, using Windows Store as distribution mechanism. Or perhaps it’ll be something that will run on the cloud.
The idea of starting my own microISV has been simmering in my head since 2005, but I’ve been largely ignoring it due to lack of conviction. I had already have a full time job in which I put in way too many hours. Would I still be able to put in the time required to make something of my own? Would my family suffer? What if, what if, and what if…
Well, after some 5+ years of simmering, I’ve finally decided to just go for it, on the hunch that if you start it (the business), they (the ideas) will come. Let’s wait and see what becomes of this hunch.
And so begins the Kadople Experiment.
