I started working on a "scratch my own itch" project but haven't been able to devote enough time to developing it. This is where you come in. The project is an email newsletter-based RSS/Atom feed reader.
The most immediate core backend development I need for version 1.0 is:
#1 - process RSS/Atom feed entries on a schedule (most likely using Heroku Scheduler) and insert into a Postgres database
#2 - aggregate feed entries using a template into an email newsletter (while taking in to account user's settings)
#3 - set up an email service that sends newsletters to users on a schedule
