As a developer whenever I had an idea my first instinct was to find out how to build it. But after reading The Lean Startup and watching YC’s channel I came to the conclusion that it’s not about how to build something, but about what to build!
Not having to worry about how to make something instead only having to worry about finding problems and needs that customers care about enough to pay for changed my way of thinking completely!
I now can have a simple landingpage claiming to have created a product (that I cannot ever create myself, but with funding can be created) for the sole purpose of getting pre-orders/signups to then get funding. In other words almost anything is possible, you just have to get customers!
I cannot explain how much easier everything just became for me, so I decided to share it here. A little trap for my fellow devs to watch out for!
What do you think, am I right?
