Hey Mike!

So cool Jim Clarke will be having a talk at OJUG! What are the chances his talk might be recorded? I have his book and am a huge fan. Love to get his view on the continued value in native development.

Q&A with the Creator of Checkless, a Low-Cost, Simple Site Monitoring Tool

Steve Elliott wanted a simple, cheap way to monitor uptime for his websites. He found most off-the-shelf tooling to either be too complex or too costly.
