Hi and thanks for stopping by! As said in more details in the Concepts page, Clusterify is about bringing together coders who share common interests to work on small projects.
François Savard now occasionnally makes contributions to the code.
Clusterify.com is derived from an idea proposed by François Savard on Hacker News and Reddit in January 2009. Through interaction on the Hacker News thread, François met Aneesh Kulkarni, and both set out to implement the idea.
François worked about three weeks fulltime on the project and Aneesh helped out at times on nights/weekends until, in February 2009, they launched the project on Hacker News. After receiving much feedback, further tweaks were implemented during the following weeks. Meanwhile, about a hundred users signed up.
A few weeks later, Aneesh left the project. Shortly after, Sean Auriti contacted François to help with the site. After some discussion, they both agreed that responsibility for the site and project would be transfered to Sean. The transition happened around April 5, 2009, in the course of which the site changed servers and also became an open source project.
Thanks to all who are helping us with the beta! Feedback is so precciousss.
As some of you will surely note, the design was inspired by Stack Overflow. The site is based on the Django framework and uses a little sparkle of jQuery for autocomplete. We also use the modules django-tagging and Markdown heavily. The site is hosted over at Webfaction.
