When I started Day Camp 4 Developers, it was a one-off project to raise funds for a bigger idea I had. Here we are 10 years later and DC4D is still going strong while the other idea never even made it to a public announcement.
I just finished reading Ryan Holiday’s book “Perennial Seller: The Art of Making and Marketing Work That Lasts“, a book that talks about building (writing) things that last 10 years or more. This book has helped me change my attitude towards DC4D more than anything else. I want DC4D to be around for the next 10 years and the 10 years after that.
What project are you working on that has lasted longer than you expected? What project are you working on that has the potential to impact generations?
In software, it is easy to think that what we build today may last five years if we are lucky. Think longer term. Build your projects to last 10 years. Unlike me, do it on purpose. ?
Until next time
