Welcome, introduce yourself! (Week of Apr 26th)

Rosie here -- the Indie Hackers community manager. Welcome! 👋

This short guide is meant to help you get the most out of Indie Hackers.

First, introduce yourself!

Indie Hackers is a community of people helping each other build profitable businesses and side projects. The key word here is "community." Don't be shy!

For starters, take a second to introduce yourself and share your goals in the comments below. 👇

Just say a few words about who you are, why you're here, and what you hope to accomplish or learn in 2020.

Take a moment to say hello to someone else as well!

Dive into learning.

We've interviewed hundreds of successful indie hackers. I recommend reading a few of their stories. It's a great way to get an overview of what's possible.

@csallen also puts out podcast episodes if reading isn't your thing!

Next, get started!

There's no time like the present. Check out the "Start Here" page for a list of practical steps and articles that can help you take action.

Not only will it help you get started, but it should also introduce you to some of the best parts of the Indie Hackers community.

This is just the tip of the iceberg! If you're ever feeling lost or confused, post in the Meta group or tag me (@rosiesherry) in any comment or post.

Don't forget to introduce yourself and say hi to someone else below! 🤗

    I'm a Software Engineer looking for inspiration to turn peoples ideas into something tangible :)

    1. 1

      Would like to possibly inspire you and maybe work on a project or two.

    2. 1

      That's great Redmug :) That is an incredibly important role. You find anything cool yet? :)

    Hi guys, I am content creator on Youtube and Udemy. My content is mostly on Flutter, a framework created by Google that can build iOS, Android, web, desktop and embedded apps with one codebase. Only have 2 years of experience in coding.

    Quit my software dev job to teach people, without experience, to become great software developers. That's my purpose.

    All the best guys!

    1. 2

      Hey! I'm also interested in iOS development! I've heard of Flutter, but I've never used it before.

      1. 1

        Hey danny,

        I recommend SwiftUI it's very intuitive and easy to learn.

        1. 1

          I have started playing around with SwiftUI! I've been impressed with the simple stuff I've tried so far. Have you completed any SwiftUI apps?

          1. 1

            Yes for example recently I finished this app https://yangthecanary.app/ I loved the declarative UI it becomes easier to think after imperative codes :)

            1. 1

              Very cool. I'd love to learn more about your experiences publishing an app in the App Store and trying to market it.

      2. 1

        You never know when you try right? You can head to flutter.dev to see more. Have fun!

    2. 1

      Hey there, my friend and I build our dating app with flutter here - StepUp! Feel free to check it out and give me any feedback. We both love flutter and how easy it makes everything though! Happy to connect more with you.

    3. 1

      That's super cool!! I love Flutter, I'm a bit of a novice on it as I only learned a bit so I could have enough base knowledge to think about it properly with my developers, but damn I loved the crap out of it. Love to check out your YouTube if you want to post it :)

  3. 5

    Hi, I am a beginner in programming and looking forward to creating my first simple project by June 2020.

    1. 1

      Good luck! How did you choose a June 2020 deadline?

  4. 4

    Hi people ✌

          All the best to you two!


        2. 1

          I agree it looks really cool! I have been browsing the site on and off for a few months but never really properly delved into it. It's really cool.

    Hey all,

    I'm a Product Manager at a H&S software company in Toronto and a Lead Product Management Instructor at General Assembly.

    I'm here to learn, assist, and get feedback for a project I'm working on.

    1. 1

      Hello mate, sounds cool! What project are you working on that you want feedback on? :)

  6. 4

    Hey everyone, I'm Limar, a college student in cs. Just looking around, getting a feel, and wanting to get inspired. Hope everyone is well :)

    1. 1

      Hello Limar, I'm good thank you :) How are you getting on at college? What are you learning specifically? :)

  7. 4

    Hi, I'm software engineer and have been thinking about indie development for years (possibly a decade+ now). I enjoy reading about people's experience making an indie company. I want to make something I'm excited about.

    1. 1

      As they say, the best time to start was a year ago, but the second best time is now. :P ( Or, something like that hahahha)

      On a more serious note a decade+ of experience in software engineering has you incredibly well positioned to do some great stuff. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you come up with :) Any rough ideas so far?

      1. 1

        I'm a fan of keeping things small. I don't have ideas that I would say I want to put all my eggs into yet. I'm working on a version of Pinboard.in that has a few more features designed to my usage. I've been thinking about several others all the time, and probably should post them to a blog or something.

    2. 1

      Me too! I've been lurking on Indie Hackers since it was founded. I think it's time I make something for myself :)

  8. 3

    Hi! I'm a french engineering student. I also build websites/apps on the side and blog every Sunday (achrafash.netlify.app). Overall I'm trying to develop the indiehacker mindset plus I have an edtech business idea. So i'm here to get in the zone and hopefully share my journey 🙏

  9. 3

    Hello, I am a co-founder of a blockchain company that empowers companies with trust through supply chain transparency. Looking for ideas to drive traffic and engage consumers more.

    1. 1

      I'm digging the sound of this. I'm big on transparency and decentralised technologies in general. If you can share a bit more info on specifically what you are doing - I'd love to chuck some ideas at you. I have a bit of a knack for unique marketing plans :)

      1. 1

        Sure, let's talk. My email address is [email protected]

    2. 1

      Hi dlurth blockchain and transparency are the future imo, maybe we could help each other, you need leads and I need case studies, wanna collab?

      1. 1

        Hey Leadstr, sure would love to find out more about what you are doing, email me at [email protected]

  10. 3

    I am a software developer and want to build something of my own. Looking for ideas and inspiration.

    1. 1

      Hello. I thought of one today. Every time I write a new blog post I have to visit each website to post a link on to let people know. Linkedin, Twitter, Hacker News, etc... What if there was a platform that posted to these and recommended new ones on publish or with a single click after?

    2. 1

      Hello :) Ideas... I have too many. Do you want some? hahaha. What are your interests? I'll delve into my archive...

  11. 3

    Hi all,

    My name is Matt.

    My career has been solely focused on working for small startups, completely remotely.

    I'm the Lead developer for an EdTech Startup coursematch.io, technical consultant for Blockchain startup dovu.io I have a blog focused on remote work for startups worldclassremote.com and I've also recently started a SaaS side project to help content consumers make a safe choice before they click play safestream.info

    I'd like to build up my side project SaaS to eventually start getting paying customers, build up a community, and hopefully hire a team to take the day-to-day running off my hands if the project is capable of hitting 5-10K MMR.

    Love to chat, be inspired by this community and get insights.

    Hey folks, I'm Chris a former PM and founder of a Mobile meetup in Dublin. Branching out to try and make my way outside of FT employment. 👋

    1. 1

      Hey there mate!

      Welcome to the IH tribe, and all the best of luck to achieving what you set your mind to! I'm sure this will be an inspiring community for you! :)



  24. 2

    Hey! My business partner and myself (he´s from the USA, I´m Austrian) just finished our MVP for a different kind of Decentralized Token Exchange. Would love to get in touch with fellow crypto/blockchain folks to share experiences and maybe talk about collaborations. Cheers

    1. 1

      Hi John!

      I'm Cyril, a mobile engineer working in a crypto startup based in Paris.
      Would love to try out your product :)

      1. 2

        Cyril, thanks for the reply. You can check it out at https://double-edge.net/

        btw, I saw you are working for a crypto startup too?

    Hello everyone, I'm Filippo. I've been working as Digital Project Manager and eCommerce Manager for the last seven years, now I'm about to launch a personal project about Shopify.

    Basically I replicate and sell templates of homepages inspired by big fashion brands store with a no-code tool, so anyone can have a captivating and highly functional homepage on their Shopify store at a fraction of the price.

    I planned to launch on Product Hunt on Tuesday, so now I'm refining things and hopefully, I'll make my first $ online. On team I worked and launched multiple projects that went pretty well, but this is a one-man-band project and I'm a complete noob on the marketing side, so I'm here to learn and hear suggestions!

  27. 2

    Hi Everyone, I'm a service-based entrepreneur co-founding a property videography company (@agenc__ on Instagram if you're interested). I've recently picked up coding again with the hopes of building MVP's for my own ideas rather than having to negotiate equity with investors or partners.

    1. 1

      Hey dude, how is this going for you?

      I often struggle with this issue, while at the same time there is so much other than code that I am frankly more suited/better at, that is also valuable for building products... and there is only so much time in the day you know.

      1. 1

        Absolutely, I 100% feel the same way. I am only at the beginning points of learning to code But I would say that it’s going well. My co-founder is the creative and acc manager so as long as our systems,socials and ads are running well I’m free to do what I want at this point Since we’re doing enough gross profit for both of us to live comfortably and have very few overheads I.E developing products for us to sell to our clients or use internally then license to our competitors (although I’ve got a bit to go before I’m good enough to code anything useful... 😂).

        What’s your situation Seb?

        1. 1

          That's a great position to be in! Great job.

          I am hopefully on my way there... however our business is not really one that will slow down at a certain point in the foreseeable future. It's more like a "typical" startup, except we are trying to bootstrap it.

          So probably won't start coding anytime soon haha. That's ok though. But I think it is smart what you are doing!

  28. 2

    Hi my name is Tomas, I've just started creating technical content on new knowledge platform tomas.io intended for hackers, technical founders, developers, testers, and operators of modern distributed systems.

    The platform will host articles on open source software, technology stacks, automated deployments, virtualisation, container orchestration, among other topics.

    1. 1

      Nice one mate! Keep up the great work! :)


    2. 1

      I like the sound of that Tomas! Get your email list setup asap so I can subscribe to it :D

      1. 1

        Hi Luke! Thanks for the feedback. I'm focusing on the content right now, but will keep your suggestion in mind for future release. Meanwhile, I'll be posting updates about tomas.io on twitter.com/tomas_d

    Hi, my name is Simon Kim. I'm 17 and a senior in High School. Throughout high school I have ran a few successful businesses based on organic marketing through content platforms. I'm excited for 2020. I'm a content creator first, on tiktok making videos on positive mental health topics and am working on growing a movement/brand called keep it wholesome. In 2020 I'm hoping to grow the movement and network with a lot more like minded people.

    1. 2

      Hey Simon i like what your doing bro, building a movement and following your passio

    2. 1

      I like the sound of your jam bro. It sounds like you're passionate about what you're doing, in my opinion that's gonna help a lot, especially in the initial growth stage where the fruits of your labour don't come so quickly :)

  35. 2

    Hey guys, my name's Nick Wignall 👋

    Long-time occasional IH lurker but finally joined up (thanks to @rosiesherry for giving me the nudge!).

    I'm a clinical psychologist and blogger who writes about mental health and wellbeing.

    I work full-time as a therapist but also make a second full-time income blogging via Medium's Partner Program. Happy to answer questions about that if anyone's interested.

    Currently getting ready to launch a second beta version of my online course, Emotional Fitness Bootcamp.

    Would love to connect, especially if you're in the mental health/wellbeing space.

    1. 1

      Hey there Nick! Welcome to the IH members' group!

      Will you be the Jordan Peterson of IH? ;)

      Cheers and looking forward to reading your posts!


      1. 2

        Ha! I doubt it... Thanks for the welcome :)

    2. 1

      Sounds very cool!! How does Medium work via payments? I've never used it in that regard myself.

      1. 2

        Hey Luke, they way it works is you can choose to make any article of yours on Medium locked, which means only paying members of Medium can read it. But, then you get paid depending on how much engagement your articles get from members. They don't disclose exactly how "engagement" works, but the primary metrics are how many people read it and how long they spend reading it.

        When I first started a couple years ago, my articles maybe made a few bucks per month. But at this point, I regularly have articles that make $1-2K in their first month—a few that have even made upwards of $4K in a month.

        One thing with Medium, though, that most people don't realize is that there there really only seem to be a few genres of writing that consistently does well—self-improvement, health, and tech being the big ones.

        1. 1

          Oh wow! That's actually a lot better money than I expected. I guess it takes a lot of effort to get to that level though. How do you market the articles? Is it an internal system on the site? :) Thank you for the insight.

          1. 1

            Yeah, whenever you a publish an article, it gets reviewed by Medium—and if they think it's high quality it gets "curated." This means they distribute it much more widely.

            In my experience, the key to getting to a high level of income on Medium is A) writing about topics people really care about (my combination of self-improvement and mental health seems to do really well), and B) Writing in a very clear, compelling way that makes people want to share. Here's an example: https://medium.com/personal-growth/4-things-emotionally-intelligent-people-dont-do-24ea6ea53992

            I think the key insight I learned over 2+ years writing 2 articles per week is that people don't read to learn—they read to be inspired.

  36. 2

    Hi, I'm Steve I'm a professional software engineer. I'm the founder of Scrpts, an archive and research engine for cybersecurity threats. I'm interested in most ware- type campaigns (malware, spyware, etc.) how they originate, what they target, how the code is spread, that type of stuff.

    I'm super interested in learning from other peoples experiences, and helping out with my own.


    1. 1

      This is super cool!! I've got an interest in cyber security, I think it is ever increasingly important. I've been playing around on your site and it looks very useful. Aggregating all this data saves a lot of time.

      1. 2

        I'd love to know what you'd like to see! Or if there was anything that was too confusing about the site.

  37. 2

    Hi, I'm Pavel, founder of http://directual.com/ — low-code platform for hackers. We've been working mostly with enterprise, but in 2020 have gone public. Hope that our technology will help the community members to turn their ideas into apps.
    I am happy to discuss any low-code/no-code related topic!

    1. 2

      I am very intrigued by the low-code/no-code scene although I have very little experience in it. I have quite a lot of experience developing my own apps via code and extensive experience managing teams of developers and I am very interested in how this sort of software might be used to ship software faster and with less training.

      I am envisioning that a majority of the "regular" work can be done with a no-code platform, with an ever increasing amount of more "custom" work, if that makes sense. And then the bits where the functionality is not there, they can just be chucked in along the way with real code? Is that how it works? :)

      1. 2

        Great question, Luke!
        That works similar, yes. Low-code approach is just using customisable building blocks. I would say that Stipe is also low-code. Stripe provides you with a customisable payment widget. Directual provides cloud database, API-builder, RBAC and Scenarios (event-processing). This allow developers to avoid routine backend work.
        There are many simpler platforms (usually called no-code), where process of developing requires less tech background, but such platforms seem to be very limited.
        Have a look at Directual, any feedback is very appreciated!

        1. 1

          Thank you for the great response! I have signed up and I'm going to play around with it when I have the spare time. Will I get updates via email now that I have an account? (I only ask because I am quite busy and getting the occasional update email might nudge me to check it out further at a time where I have the free time!:)

          1. 2

            Sure! You'll get some email updates about new platform features :)

            1. 1

              Awesome! I look forward to it :D

  38. 2

    Hi! I am a software engineer (web) with over 10 years industry experience. I tend to do engineering management these days and I am a full-time consultant.

    Hoping to exchange an hourly rate for something more scalable in the next few years. My milestone is £20k/MRR. That milestone will probably look silly later, but I look forward to the journey.

    1. 2

      Sounds similar to my situation. Do you have a product in mind? Good luck!

      1. 2

        I have a couple of pain-points that could use a solution, but none of them inspire enough personal passion to get me to a minimal product. I need something that solves a problem AND lights a fire under my butt.

        1. 1

          I agree, having a real drive to use what you're making really helps I think. Send me a message if you want to pitch an idea. Good luck!

    2. 1

      Hey Aiden,

      Love the ambitious milestone, don't get discouraged when you don't achieve it any time soon though. It's very unlikely (but possible).

      Don't forget to set some smaller milestones along the way.

      1. 2

        Indeed, that's why I am trying to focus on something that is a labour of love. That'll help me persist. In order to replace my consulting career, I need to hit that milestone. I don't expect this to happen soon however.

  39. 2

    The pandemic push.

    Hi all,

    I worked at a travel tech company, but was let go in light of the pandemic. With the employment market looking dire, I've decided to take the plunge and commit to a side project full-time to see how far I can take it.

    My aim is for it to cover the rent, and then for it to replace my now missing salary.

    The project is an education product for UK university admissions. I'm doing an email campaign to 3,500 teachers today at 10am. Can't sleep. Feels like Christmas: there are presents wrapped and ready to go under the tree, but who knows what lays inside.

    Looking forward to getting to know you all.

    1. 1

      Good luck mate, followed ya. Share what you do along the way, in my experience it really helps to get things out your head. You heard of agile methodology too? :)

      1. 2

        Is there particular part of agile you recommend I take note of?

        I'm familiar with it, but only through proximity. I'm working in sprint of 3 weeks, and have a mindmap of all the workstreams. They fall into either i) Sales ii) Product, or iii) Biz Ops.

        Slicing the problems in this way has helped me focused, and I can see where workstreams complement one another.

        I can then easily see relative priorities, and then use the framework below to sense check if I should move forward:


        Being able to see everything at a glance also gives me a kick up the bum to move things forward.

        1. 1

          That's great!! Sounds like you've got a great methodology already.

          If I was to suggest one thing, it would be to bring the sprints down to 1 week. It's fine to have an overall, big plan but in my experience (and what I've heard from others who consult on agile) it is best to keep things within 2 weeks, aiming for 1 week if possible.

          The reason for this is because things change drastically as you work and you should only be planning sprints long enough to keep your team (or yourself) busy in the immediate future.

          Of course having bigger plans is fantastic too! But that can be taken care of outside of the agile framework (That's what I think anyways - I think everyone has different opinions on that. It works well for me)

          1. 1

            I've been giving this a go this week, and it's been a great help. Feels more empowering, as when plans get derailed for whatever fire needs to be fought, there is no guilt, as being reactive is now baked into the design.

            Appreciate it.

    2. 1

      Sound exciting man! How is it working out so far? Curious to hear.

      1. 1

        The 24 hour stats are in!

        We had 80 visitors to the website, and 10 people sign up for a sample. Some more visitors are straggling along today.

        Overall, I'm content. We also had a school reply saying it looked great, and they're figuring out budgets, so that's promising.

        I'm daylighting in sales, and moonlighting in product right now.

        1. 1

          That sounds like a good start indeed! Rooting for you. If I can ever help you out with some feedback concerning earned reach, let me know. College tuition loans are a huge problem that should be tackled with vigor.

I have a few good [very subjective term!] ideas and am looking forward to giving them form in the next few years. Let's see how that goes!

    Hi everyone, I'm Richard. I've been involved in a few startups before but things have never clicked for me. With the whole Covid-19 thing and because of a podcast I recently heard about Feedback Panda over on "Startups for the Rest of Us" I've decided to give things another go and just stick with it for a longer period of time.

    My SASS web application is all about helping organisations to make better decisions in a collaborative and transparent way. I'm still working on my MVP but do have the landing page up and working over at https://decisionbear.com

    I've been lurking for a week or two now, but this looks like a great community to be a part of and I'm really looking forward to plunging into it.

    Hello people, I'm Mert, ios develop who loves to create experimental side projects.
    I started to code since 2011 but just recently realized I have a problem with finishing something although I have lots of different projects none of them was a sustainable product which makes even a small amount of money.

    So 2020 is dedicated to building something which is valuable for people to spend money on it. Therefore I have found here indie hackers it's like heaven for me to accomplish this year's goal.

    This year so far I created 3 products and my strategy is to spray and pray 😂 because I don't want to be so focused on one idea and start to kill the time and do nothing.

    Yang the Canary ➡ https://yangthecanary.app
    An ios app for helping you to memorize important stuff. (It's called also Spaced Repetition)

    GymBud ➡ https://gymbudservice2.firebaseapp.com/
    Again ios app for personal gym trainer online with some amount.

    So far I didn't make a single $ but it's fine 😂 With those projects I realized what do they mean by product development.. fck it's hard 😱

    I took on a website project for my day job (which is not programming) and have come a long way. I was fortunate to be able to learn on their time.

    Now I'm trying to finally buckle down and finish projects for a portfolio and start stretching my creativity. I'd like to offer free/cheap website services to local restaurants so they can help keep the community notified of their opening status and specials for takeout. My local economy is almost completely tourism driven and the quarantine has been (justified but) understandably very hard for local small businesses (also hardly any chains/franchises down here).

    I'm also working on a time-tracking/pomodoro/todo list combo mostly for my own use, but I won't turn down any income it might produce.

    Hello IHers,

    I am the co-founder of StepUp, a 3 minute video speed date app. It works in a chatroulette fashion where a user gets connected to another randomly, but to solve the unsolicited display of private parts, we added a blur.

    Users can hang up any time during the call. If they make it through 1 minute, the blur will start to fade away. If they make it past two, then the video will be completely clear. After that, they can choose to like/dislike to further connect in messaging.

    We released the MVP in October and now the more mature app in March, but we struggle to get any users as we face the typical chicken-egg question of community-driven platform. Feedback? Comments? Interest? I look forward to connect with you all. Thanks.

    P.S. shout out to @MarcHoward for directing me here.

    👋 Hi! I'm building a new way for podcast listeners to find a community.

  128. 1

    Hello :)

    My name's Luke and I love the concept of "hacking" things. Not in any illegal way, and not even just with computers, but anything! Naturally this website looks intriguing to me.

    I've been fortunate enough to make a full-time income for myself online for the majority of my life, I made my first money online while I was still a kid and ended up leaving school at 14 which allowed me to focus on business. Now I'm 24 and have been able to survive (and occasionally thrive) through online ventures my entire life!

    Lots of ups and downs, but overall I've had a pretty good time. Does anyone know if we are able to share progress on projects on here without revealing details like name or other potentially sensitive info? I would love to share some stuff that can be public - but some of my projects require anonymity to a certain degree but I still think they can be beneficial for people with the limited information I have to share :)

    1. 2

      Hey @LukeTheLifeHacker
      That sounds like an impressive life story there man. I quit my job to start a few ventures with some friends too. Most recently released this video speed date app - StepUp. Would love to connect with you!

      1. 1

        Oh damn dude that is a sick idea for an app! Like, when you first said "video speed date app" I won't lie - my brain did kind of automatically go "oh no, not another one" but I was quickly proven to be thinking too harshly too quickly!! I really love the concept and the way you've done it :D Would love to connect some way or another. No idea how we PM on this site though? Hahaha. I'm really intrigued on how you're gonna handle some of the challenges that go along with an app like yours. Like getting the initial user base when it's heavily effected by having active users in the first place (I got some ideas if ya want 'em :D)

          Hey Luke,

          I tried shooting you an email now but your address wasn't found. I don't think you can PM on here, but shoot me an email at [email protected]

          1. 1

    2. 2

      you left school at 14?? nice!

      1. 1

        I did indeed! I must admit it wasn't entirely because I was stacking 100 dollar bills hahahah. I had some pretty severe anxiety and depression issues. But knowing what I wanted to do and having some proof of the concept of making money online made it a more plausible option for my parents I think! It's also made me really passionate about education and how it could be done in a better way. I believe there is a lot of potential out there being wasted because the system only works for some.

    Hello there everybody! I've been in and out of the webdev and real estate industries for the past 15 years. I have recently teamed up with a friend from college (Washington & Lee University) who has been doing Rstats consulting and Rshiny app development for the past 5 years.

    He has created a product that provides authentication and admin user controls for Shiny applications after realizing many of his clients needed/wanted a better system than what shinyapps.io has been providing.

    I recently listened to the podcast with Baird Hall and was convinced to come signup here for marketing research and advice on growing an audience!

    My goal is to begin to market our product (www.polished.tech) directly to individuals who we believe will benefit the most. Due to the very targeted and specific nature of POLISHED, I believe you guys here at indiehackers could provide some much needed direction as to how to go about this!

    Hi IH! I'm Ali from Saudi Arabia, and I've been reading and learning web development for less than a year now while also working full time as a Finance Manager and a parent of two kids.

    I've taken programming classes in high school and university (which was Java at the time) and I really enjoyed the building part and solving problems of programming. But I actually haven't done anything outside of my classes and nothing related to web programming. I have the mentality of a programmer as this isn't my first time to learn programming, but each language you learn has it's own way to deal and work with it. The knowledge I had from programming actually helped me excel in my career, and was always thinking how to automate our work processes by removing manual work so we can focus on the most important tasks we had. I did this with Excel and macros but no actual programming, only using formulas from Excel.

    Before going into web development, I have passed through Python on a mobile app (SoloLearn) it was easy and learning it wasn't difficult but I only brushed on the surface of the main basic topics any programmer should learn and excel at before going into advanced topics.

    I've had so many ideas that I wanted to implement over the years, and one main reason I didn't start was not having a programmer onboard and the other one was initial capital to start. Then about a year ago or so, I actually found out I didn't know anything about starting a startup! That's when I stumbled upon YC (Y Combinator) and their vast knowledge of startups in Startup School which is condensed into so much valuable knowledge that every word mentioned is worth gold. Since one the founders is Paul Graham, I went and read most of his essays from when he started YC. Also, I've listened to YCs Startup School from 2017 and onward and learned so much from them, then also listened to all their podcasts from 2015 until recently (I really advise you all to take a look at what they have, I know being part of this community here is to be independent and not be bound by accelerators or VCs but you can take what's relevant and leave what's not).

    When I first started to read about startups and listen to podcasts about the market I wanted to build my startup (that initial idea has changed drastically!), I was always thinking of bringing in a programmer as a co-founder, but I had a difficult time finding one. Then, one day at work I was creating a tool to automate so work that we had. It took me maybe two days to finish it where I had the most fun I've had in a while in my job. After I finished the tool, It struct me that I've always LOVE to build and create things and that's the most of what I enjoyed about my work all those years. So from that day I decided that I needed to start learning web development (I might still need a more experienced technical co-founder but at least now I can start while that happens). Since I was reading so much about web development (even before making this decision) and the new technologies and frameworks there are I had a path on what I should learn to get to the outcome I want and start implementing my idea (or ideas since there are so many of them lol).

    I was always thinking about the steps of how to start my idea and how it can evolve and from where I should get funding. But then I again stumbled upon Basecamp and their story and how they haven't taken any outside investment and the big reputation they have today of being one of the best startups. I went and read the books that they have written (I really recommend reading them because, they do have different ideas and business processes from the traditional ones that we hear or listen about often, but these are ideas that have worked for them and not only theories).

    After finishing the books that Basecamp team wrote, I happened to remember a podcast I heard through YC for one of the founders that were backed by YC which is our founder of IH community Courtland Allen (@csallen) and how he was talking about this website he created for a community of independent builders and that this is another way to go without having to go the VC way.

    So this is why I have came here, to learn from the community's stories, improve and develop my web development skill, and get insight and feedback on my idea (or ideas) from an active community like IH!

    This has been a long introduction, but I couldn't stop until I had to write my full story and hope you enjoyed getting all the way to the end!

    Hello Hackers,
    My wife and I are co-founders of homebirth.com, a web portal that connects expecting families with homebirth professionals. The worldwide pandemic has had a huge impact on our hospital system causing women to reconsider their options and that's where we step in. Our goal is to help educate women on their options and to connect them with midwives, doulas, and other professionals that may suit their needs.

    I have worked in performance marketing at agencies for nearly a decade and it's finally time to use the skills I've developed on my own business. Any tips or advice would be welcome!

    I'm VP Engineering at Cloverpop - a Slack app for tracking decisions. I'm at a bit of a crossroads in my life and want to move into product management. Part of that journey will be building 1-2 products that are completely my own. Joined indie hackers to get feedback on my ideas and see if people want to beta test what I build.

    I am particularly interested on building on other platforms like Slack/Coda/Airtable. I've really enjoyed building Cloverpop on Slack and am happy to talk to anyone about my experience if you are thinking of doing the same.

    Hi, I'm James 👋

    I currently work full time as an Engineering Manager for a UK digital-only bank called Monzo - currently LinkedIn's official #1 startup in the UK.

    I didn't do well in school and spent my early 20's working on building sites. I got into a bad place and learnt to code in my spare time. Worked my way up from the bottom to get to where I am today.

    I'm here because I am starting a side project with the mission of building a community to promote inclusion and diversity in tech, that will generate revenue so I can do my bit to give back to the communities that helped me turn my life around.

    See you around friends ✌️

Rare and appreciated!

    Hi I’m Peter Tran, my site is https://miceandpen.com, I’ve been a web developer for over 10 years. Over the years I’ve been torn between working for a company and being a freelancer. I did pretty well as a freelancer from 2012-2016, then things dwindled down a bit as SquareSpace, Wix, Shopify etc changed the industry. Most clients stopped seeing value in a $5K-$10K+ site vs a cheap monthly subscription with nice templates. So I began focusing more on the company I work for. But like many others I got the COVID-19 shaft and here I am back in the game again trying to rediscover my roots!

    I operate a tech-driven business in West Africa and I currently live in Lagos, Nigeria. I've lived in West Africa (between Anglo- and Franco-phone regions) for the last 5+ years (prior to that I was US-based) and I've identified a number of opportunities that I believe are worth exploring further, hopefully with the help of the technically-gifted in the IH community.
