Reddit growth strategies? by @osakasaul
What no one told me, had me languishing and getting nowhere in Reddit. You need over 150 Karma. You won't get that be self-promoting, but by finding "hot and controversial," and writing something caustic or snarky in a comment on about 10 posts. Wait a few hours. Try again. Within a couple of days, you'll have it.
I will start applying it tomorrow.
Where do you go to read dev news?

What tools do indie hackers use for task management? by @yassineze
Some people use a mixture of clubhouse.io (free up to 10 users) and Trello. Whereas some stick to Notion (personal plan is free now), or Airtable whereas others use simple apps like Todoist.
Anyone knows of any way to automate tasks on a website? Kinda like macros? by @Soft_Re
If its something you simply want to help yourself out of - that is, press 1 button instead of N to do the actions on your behalf then these are most commonly done with userscripts. Please see: https://openuserjs.org/about/Userscript-Beginners-HOWTO
If its something you'd like to automate completely on some timed basis, or another IFTT action, you'd need to make an extension on using a browser automation stack - there are many such as Selenium, and Ghost and even extension based automation.
How do you develop a business while working full time? by @SMK
Having a result-oriented flexible employer is a very big advantage. If you don't have this advantage, some things are still in your control such as decreasing sleep, social activity, self-care (working out, friends etc) can definitely give an opportunity to kickstart your side business.
