Recently I've been really struggling with market research and being the inexperienced noob I am, I made a lot of mistakes. Everytime I tried my hand at it I'd get an absolutely tiny bit of a good indication, and then I would make a bucket load of uninformed assumptions about the market and start building (whether it be a nice landing page or a product).
I just got wind of yet another set of incorrect assumptions I made, that nobody in the market really had a need for it, and that was soul crushing.
I realised that all this is just taking away from the fun I have while building stuff. What I really like is building stuff for fun, especially using tools I haven't used before, to learn something new. Like recently I built a toy programming language for myself just because I was bored. Nobody asked for it, it's not good enough to solve anybody's problems, I just loved doing it. And you know what? I learnt bucket loads while doing so! Here's the link if you're interested in how I did it.
So I don't care if the market needs it, I'm just gonna build a smart ATS like thing for hiring developers that I have an idea about. I'm gonna use Supabase and Tailwind CSS for it because I've never used them.
If people like it and it's good enough that they wanna pay for it? Amazing! If not, no worries I might just open source it. I'm still gonna learn 2 new things!
I love to build stuff, so that's what I'm gonna go do!
