So here I am on day 1 of my 30 day challenge to design, build and release a new software product within 30 days. I’ve got a few quiet weeks (i.e. no major releases planned for existing products) and already have one customer signed up to use a service similar to one I’m already using for in-house reporting and monitoring. Only our in house service is MySQL/PHP based (so doesn’t support .NET Web Services or WCF) and since it’s only me looking at the stats – the interface is rather raw. Compared with the existing web stats services, it’s ugly.
