Introducing Kickbacker

It has been a long and amazing road since leaving Boston for Africa back in July. One of the many things I wanted to make sure I did while traveling was to keep coding and build something along the way. Using a new and different stack than I was used to. I happy to release KickBacker to the public today in *beta.*

KickBacker is a tool for KickStarter project owners to incentivize their backers to promote their project. The owners and backers are aligned around a common goal: Getting the Project Funded. KickBacker allows project owners to give their backers an extra reward, a KickBack, to the backer who drives the most traffic to their project.

Check it out at and let me know what you think.

The app is built with Python using Flask, Jinja, Redis, Celery and is deployed to Amazon EC2 using Boto and Fabric.
