Project alpha: Passbook - Group management completed

It has been a while since I made a post on my personal project. The main reason is that progress have been much slower than expected. The main challenge is still managing my time. By waking up at 1 and 2AM each day and working until 3:30 AM I am making far more progress than before. However, after some reflection on what I achieved after 5 working days using this schedule, I find that what I've done is only about as much as I do in a normal working day.

Stopping and resuming work requires about 5 to 10 minutes each time so a lot of momentum is lost in the project by simple fact of not having enough time dedicated to it. Nevertheless I am still very hopeful and am personally pleased with the project. I will most definitely use Passbook once it is complete and my pursuit of perfect is a nice change when compared to a much more deadline/time-to-delivery focused approach to development that I am forced to adopt at work.

Given the limited progress this month it looks like it may take up to the end of Feburary before the project is complete. But I have realigned my goals and have decided that for me quality is most definately more important than qantity.
