    Open discussion on cloud-hosting 

    Our April meeting with be an open-ended discussion. We’ll talk about running your php application on things like Amazon’s and Rackspace’s cloud, as well as other things to keep in mind about your production environment. Should be a good discussion.

    New meeting location, starting in May 

    Center 7, a gracious sponsor for several years has offered to bring us back home to the old Linux Networx building in Bluffdale. Center 7 purchased the building recently and added it to their list of data centers along the Wasatch Front. You might have read in the news a few months back about Twitter hosting their service (at least in part) from there. Feedback indicates that the location is more convenient for most of the group.

      Wade. I work for a company called Idea Partnership which is a small incubator for web start-ups. This building would also be available for meeting in the future. We are located at 4770 S. 900 E. If in the future you need something more between downtown and draper, let me know.

    I’m a student at BYU right now and a friend and I have come up with an idea for a website that we think could go really far. We’ve been struggling to find people skilled enough who are willing to give it a try with us though. One of my friends suggested that I ask on here and see if anyone is up to it. We would only be able to offer a percentage of any future profits instead of a set pay, but there is no guarantee of anything since it’s just an idea right now… Anyway, let me know if you want to join in. Or if I’m even posting this in the right place…

      “We would only be able to offer a percentage of any future profits instead of a set pay, but there is no guarantee of anything since it’s just an idea right now…”

      I can’t count how many times I’ve heard these exact words. What this really actually means is “our idea, which we were too shy to even mention here publicly, doesn’t seem to be interesting to investors, so we’re just going to wing it.”

      It never actually works out, and I wouldn’t recommend anyone (friend or not) jumps on board with this work. If they can’t find funding, it wasn’t a good business model in the first place. Not being able to even mention what the work is also means there’s a lack of confidence that this is actually even an innovative project since there’s worry that “anyone could jump in front of us, it doesn’t actually take anyone special to do this.”
