Bumperdo is shutting down

March 16th, 2021

I have some important and sad news to share - Bumperdo is shutting down at the end of this month. I want to explain to you why, and address how this impacts you.

Ever since I started building Bumperdo in the summer of 2014, I’ve loved working on it, and I love the fact that other people are using it.

However, it has become increasingly difficult for me to maintain Bumperdo. While I do put in the time to make sure it stays up to date in terms of security, I haven’t released functionality updates for over a year. You, as a user, deserve better than I can provide with my limited time and skill.

What does this mean for you?

During the rest of the month, you’ll be able to download your open tasks in CSV format by logging in to your account, and by clicking the link in the yellow notification bar.

What are some good alternatives?

Bumperdo is similar in functionality to Trello, Asana, and a number of other cards-based task managers. I’ve used them and can recommend them both. If you’re on a corporate account, make sure that you’re allowed to use your new task manager.

Closing notes

I really, really want to thank you for using Bumperdo. The fact that I was able to build something that was useful to you and other people means more to me than you can imagine. It pains me that I have to shut down this part of my, and your, life.

Thank you.
