Most days involve long hours at the desk writing code for the site. Over time this can take a real toll on your neck and back. So it was time to invest in a decent chair. While not the $1,500 Aeron most high-profile startups splurge for their employees, this Ergoflex space office chair from Milan Direct should be an affordable equivalent.
Don’t think for a second I’m blowing the budget on furniture, actually I’ve barely touched the donations and initial founder investment. This low-cost development has been achieved by building the site myself and the help of BizSpark that provides a base level of Azure hosting for free. Natrually there are expenses like domain names, etc, but for now costs are low.
As the site heads towards beta, additional developers will need to be engaged that will cost money. Until then, the burn rate is low.
Right, now back to some coding in my uncomfortable chair.
