Ideas and Validation February 15, 2020

A huge collection of app ideas

Dylan Wilson @craftworkgames

I recently found this great GitHub repository of app ideas and I wanted to share it with the IH community.

https://github.com/florinpop17/app-ideas/blob/master/README.md

The projects are not really intended to be full profitable business ideas but I feel that it's still hugely valuable for a few reasons:

  • looking through the list and playing with the demos might inspire new ideas
  • if you're trying to learn how to code they are great projects to learn with since the skills lend themselves well to real world applications (that's what they are destined for)
  • they also help you think about projects in terms of user stories which is quite different to most other learn to code resources I've seen

Anyway, it's one to bookmark.

    That's pretty cool Dylan, thanks for sharing!

    Great stuff

  4. 1

    Pretty good. But those user stories are actually acceptance criteria.

    1. 1

      Indeed you're right. To be honest I didn't notice that before, I was just going off what he wrote in the main readme.

      In my defence, I had no involvment in creating this repository. I just thought it was interesting.

    2. 1

      Yeah, I've always written user stories from the user's perspective following the "As a <user type> I want to <thing to accomplish> so that <benefit>" template.
