Decided to join the forum when I came across this thread while doing some research. I am a software developer (and food enthusiast) specializing in small business management applications.
I recently had a friend of mine suggest looking into doing something for the food service market. I would love to develop something of use for chefs / caterers, but honestly, I don't currently know enough about the business to feel I could really add any value.
If anyone here feels like there is a need for some fresh software, I would love to open up a dialogue with you, assuming I'm not violating the forum rules in any way by asking.
I'd much rather work on something that I know helps you in some specific ways than to spend a bunch of time building something with my limited knowledge of your needs & desires.
Again, my focus is on small businesses and specific markets. I'd much rather develop a small & elegant application that suits a specific market (i.e catering, personal chefs, etc…) than to try and build a large enterprise application that tries to be all things to all people.
If this sounds good to you, I'll go ahead and start a new thread where we can start talking details.
P.S. I don't really do desktop software, so anything I would make has to be web-based or mobile (iPhone / iPad).
