Almost every time I tell someone new about this project the question ‚why‘ pops up inadvertently. While there are many reasons to motivate me for this project, one of the driving ones from the beginning was to have a project that allows to experiment with certain frameworks and technologies. In a project with paying customers you most often do not have the freedom to do this. In the end you can only gain experience with this new/yet unknown stuff by creating something with it. Basically this boils down to a learning experience that will improve my programming skills. In this blog post I will try to shed some light on what exactly this is, while following through development of Release 0.8.0.
