In the past, the classic way of iterating over web apps/sites on the web (other than a local Apache/Nginx server) was utilizing free hosting services (assuming no budget). It's 2014 and the trends have changed tremendously over the past decade. I moved my site to using Jekyll and Github Pages recently, and it led me to reflect on what I saw in the market over the years with respect to solutions for sites on very low/nearly no budget (or if you simply want to extend your run-way for finding product-market fit).
I'm still interviewing, but I've noticed a ton of things along the way.
Exactly a year ago, I signed my offer letter with ExactTarget for an extended six month internship to gain professional experience and to grow as a software developer. Even though I had received other offers at the time, I was curious to see what ET , placing #2 in Indiana's Best Places to Work (behind Microsoft), really had to offer.
