Good day everyone 👋
I'm Khoa, it's morning here in Oslo. I write this after taking my 2-year-old son to kindergarten.
I'm a long-time open source enthusiast on GitHub as onmyway133 with 1.8k followers and share technical articles on Medium with over 2.4k followers.
Early last year I gave Twitter another try, followed and made friends with more fellow indie developers, and got inspired by their work.
Having a small kid and full-time job, it's hard to find time for side projects, so I decided to give less time to open source & other entertainments, and try to wake up early 1 hour to work on my side project ideas, because if I don't act now, then when?
So I revamped my personal website, made a few apps. The result was lots of apps that no one know about since I don't tell about them anywhere.
Then I started learning about design, landing pages and rebuild some of them from the ground up. PastePal, GetAlmighty are some that got attractions and generate revenue.
I don't plan to show off my apps here, but just want to share how I got here and what I've learned along the way, as a full-time young dad who has a 9-5 job.
- Ideas are cheap, really cheap. I used to write down a lot of ideas that I have, but then I realized most of them are just for fun and become irrelevant quickly. We might be able to do anything, but we can't do everything. Spend time wisely
- What you don't know is what you haven't learned. Ever heard about imposter syndrome? I have, too. But then I find out that no one becomes expert on the first day. Don't compare your day 1 to Bill Gates day 10000
I'm happy to answer your questions about anything that I know: life, work, parenting, app development, ....
