In October 2016 I implemented new UI. It still needs more work to be done.Oct 2016
In July I went to visit my friend. We talked about different projects and he asked me about Linkyy. He knew that I was working on this some time ago.
After a few hours of talking I had a plan how this should look and work now.
I've changed the name to LinkXEE, updated UI and here it is. LinkXEE
I've "finished" Linkyy in Dec 2013, deployed it and we were using it. A few new features were added, but I didn't think about developing it.
In the middle of 2014, with one of my friends we created The Hoxton Team and started working on Fluentlyy and ImageWIZZ projects.
The same year ImageWIZZ has been acquired by AlchemyWorx, one of London's email marketing agencies.
Project Linkyy was finished. I've launched it and we were using it. More friends came to me asking to give them access to Linkyy.Dec 2013
After I had first thoughts how to code it, I had to design the UI. I'm not a UI designer, but I tried to sketch something. It was awful. So I decided to find something ready to use. And that's how I've found WrapBootstrap. They have a lot of cool stuff that work out of the box. I bought a template and didn't worry about the UI any more.May - Jan 2013
As PHP developer, I had a bit of experience in coding, I've setup dev environment one weekend and the fun began. I spent most of my spare time on thinking about the project. Oh yes, finally it was the project.May - Aug 2013
So I started talking with people about Linkyy - that's how I called it then. They liked the idea. Especially my wife, with whom I share a lot of YouTube links, mostly music.Dec - Apr 2013
Most of us share things with others. I used to keep library of my links on my Google Drive and share it with my family and friends. I've had different files dedicated to different categories and people. But, it wasn't efficient way. So the idea of Linkyy was born.
You'll ask me an obvious question now.
"Why didn't you use Facebook, Twitter or other social network? Everyone is using it."
And the answer is very simple:
I'm not a big fun of social network pages. I didn't want to share my stuff with others without control, and please don't tell me that you have full control of your social account. Anyway, I'm not a fun of social networking so I had to solve the problem some other way.
In October 2012 I've moved to UK.Oct 2012
