Josemando and I studied together at Informatics Centre at UFPE, one of the best universities of Brazil, and after that, we took different professional paths. He never gave up from his technical heart, and I studied some management stuff. We always asked ourselves what we were doing, and why not be a pirate. I have to admit, his stubbornness made 30ide.as.
A few months ago, we decided to create a Startup, so we brainstormed some ideas in a bar. At this moment, we both worked in different companies, and some time later we decided to quit our jobs. And I'am still trying to do it.
I work for a government company, where my parents have retired. So, imagine how happy they are with this decision.
Besides that, this week, during carnival, we launched our first idea at App Store, pSUS (a medical application for brazilian doctors). To overcome our expectation, after we buy the two first copies (and we are not medics), this app became top 5 charts in Brazil App Store.
This gave us more enthusiasm to move on. So, today, I get back from my vocations, and gave my dismissal letter.
Procedimentos SUS (pSUS) is a medical reference HTML based application. We decided to don't use objective C and Apple's components basically for two reasons:
- Design, to make it different from others same categories apps;
- Easy to deploy to other platforms, as Android.
