Times: November 4th – November 11th (5 hours total)

Weekly Task List:

Thursday 11-8-18 (2.5 hours)
  • White-boarded website design and features ideas for “Idea Dump” (1 hour)
    • Brainstormed some names: IdeaDump.com
Saturday 11-10-18 (2.5 hours)
  • Used new create-react-app to start building my site with react native. (2 hours)
    • Build initial components for front page of site.
  • Tried to reserve ideadump.com and talked to GoDaddy salesman. (30 minutes)
    • “Buying” this domain would cost $999.99 (So I’ll be choosing a new name for the site)
Lessons learned:
  • Buying a domain name (<$1000’s of dollars) is DIFFERENT than renting a domain ($~12/year)
