Ask Questions to Humans

Quick mention to another site I have out there. Ask questions to Humans. I decided to take a new approach this time and not do the “normal” side project for a web developer. Instead of actually building a site with some sort of framework, I used only tools that someone with a much less technical background could build. The entire site is static, being served from s3. The form is powered by Wufoo, and payments are by Stripe. Sure someone is going to need knowledge of html and other web services, but I wrote no server-side code for this project. I’ll have more thoughts on that later because it’s such a mental switch for me to not immediately whip out a new rails project, but in this case, for just a fun website to put up, being able to finish a beta version in two nights was key.
