Ideas and Validation February 9, 2020

Welcome, introduce yourself! (Week of Feb 9th)

Rosie Sherry @rosiesherry

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! 🤗

    Hello, I'm Gabriel. I'm a mechanical engineer that always did programming as a hobbie. I am currently in Canada and dedicating all my time to software development. My goal is to develop a good project and run a business with it.

    1. 2

      Hello Gabriel.
      Mechanic Engineering and Programming, sounds powerful.
      In which field are you interested?

      1. 2

        Hello, Zeryan! To be honest, I usually gravitate toward different topics. My capstone was related to structural analysis, then here I am trying to develop something to aid workers in the oil companies of Alberta. I also did some software related to solar powering and a system to automate the beer management in pubs. I hope this is a good answer haha! Thank you for asking.

    Hello, my name is Nathan. I built a Slack integration for my day job and want to explore taking it to the next level with a side project. Looking forward to learning more!

    1. 2

      Hey Nathan, care to share what your Slack app is?

      1. 1

        Currently exploring a simple coffee shop integration. Still exploring ideas!

    2. 2

      Hey Nathan! Hope it goes well, good luck! 💪

    Hi everyone! I'm a hacker from San Francisco, and I LOVE building products that help people live life to the fullest. I'm currently hacking on an app to help you understand your monthly credit card bill and be more aware of where and how you're spending money. I would love to hear feedback from the IndieHackers community!

    1. 4

      very nice this is something I look forward to learn the metrics behind the wheels

    2. 1

      HI YZ why $3mo? do you actually have people paying this fee that aren't your friends or family?

      1. 1

        It costs significant amounts of money to maintain the bank connection every month, so to prevent the company from making net losses, we charge a nominal $3 fee per mo.

  4. 6

    hey i have been trying to build and launch something for 7 years now but always give up before reaching the finishing line. hoping to get support from others to finally do it this year.

    1. 6

      You got this! Don't give up! Envision your results and you WILL find a way to finish

      1. 1

        Thank you.

    2. 1

      Hey, ivtxtx! What are you trying to build and launch?
      Can I help you?

      1. 1

        now im just in the thinking phase of an influencer product list app

    3. 1

      I'm right there with you! Hoping to get something out soon!

      1. 1

        ya me too

    4. 1 The episode of Impact Theory that this is from is a goldmine for getting past that.

    5. 1

      1 year and 2 months and still counting to finish my MVP, LOL. couldn't get rude of the stress easily on my own. and looking to support others to ever come the situation. I Got your back man HAHAHAHA, don't ever feel down "even the sun get down and rise again everyday."

      1. 1

        They are so kind words. I was listening to this song and your words almost brought tears to my eyes.

    6. 1

      I've been there myself! Keep it up!

      1. 1

        Thank you

  5. 6

    Hey, I'm Chloe. Currently growth hacker from a collaboration tool. Looking forward to learning more!

    1. 3

      Welcome aboard, nice to see you get stuck in!

  6. 6

    I'm building a tool that helps small daycares run their business. I'm currently building an MVP and plan to have my first paying customer in 2020.

    1. 2

      I'm in the UK, the one my daughter's nursery uses is so horrible to look at. I feel like so many of these education related services have so much potential to make an impact if designed well/modern-ly.

    2. 1

      My wife is starting to work in a small new daycare soon, I was thinking of offering some service. Could you expand a bit? I don't think daycares have their own sw here in serbia :D

    3. 1

      Hi @hitchcockdev. I know a bit about the preschool/daycare market.

      I'd love a chat to see how we can help each other.

  7. 5

    Learning basics to Front End Development from udemy. Right now side projects will be the only thing I can do since my day job is between 40-60 hours per week salary job. Just looking for a community to share my thought until they actually become useful. I'm going to build and launch page that links to my wife's fashion jewelry business with a squeeze page if they want an email when products become available. I have some headlights from my Kia Sportage I want to do the same with. Interested in gaining people's attention on the internet (e.g. phycology of getting attention). Just working with HTML and CSS web applications and made a sandbox website that I update from time to time. I wanted to say thanks to Rosie Sherry for the warm welcome. All the best, Joe

    1. 4

      Getting and gaining people's attention is just as hard work as building something, often people don't realise this until they are very far down the path.

    2. 1

      Psychology and web dev are two of my favourite topics. Recommend you reading Edward Bernays(double uncle of Freud) for the propaganda inspirations, and Jung just to figure out what it is all about. Best of luck!

      1. 1

        Thanks for the feedback. I have a dumb question. Bernays and Jung talk about psychology in general. Do you find it directly associated with sales (sales online, sales with an app, etc.) The million dollar question is will that determine what motivates someone? All the best.

        1. 1

          Off the top of my head:
          How to win friends and influence people - Dale Carnegie;
          The power of persuasion - Robert Levine
          Start with why - Simon Sinek

          Basically get Tools of Titans by TimFerriss (you can also find the book suggestions list online) and pick what sounds interesting. You really can't miss.
          Best of luck!

        2. 1

          Dumb questions don't exist! You are absolutely right about how general their knowledge is. If you want a direct answer to the question your best bet would be Dale Carnegie or someone similar to him. On the flip side, Jung is a very challenging read and will give you understanding of the motivation topic on the basis of general principles of psychology, which is a more in-depth and healthier option,imho. IRL, I base my judgment on the big five personality traits. Do you think there is a way to apply it online?

          1. 1

            I don't know. I have a disconnect between everything I've learned and why I believe they are motivated. Anytime I try to get metrics on the web I get three people trying to sell me something before I find out the metric tool cost money so I'm out. It's not that I don't want to pay for it it's just I can't pay for it given my current circumstances.

    Hi, I'm Daniel. I have more than 15 years of IT experience working in blockchain, e-commerce, e-gov, non-commercial IT projects, mostly on project manager position, but was involved as well in editing, UX research, prototypes building, copywriting, marketing, PR, support and documentation.

    I’m Gerald, I’m an heir to a billion dollar hotel/real estate portfolio in the States but decided I want to make a living as a programmer instead of my inheritance.

    I’ve committed myself to learning programming for the last 4 years and am ready to start building. I hope to leverage my sophisticated knowledge of real estate, hotels and finance to build web applications. Hoping also to meet some great people and build a team along the way.

    1. 1

      Lol not sure if joking or serious 🤔 great intro, either way.
      Welcome, you got this.

      1. 1

        I see why there can be skepticism to the claim. Why not just live off of my inheritence and live the "easy" life? The truth of the matter is that my family came from poverty and were basically subsistence farmers before traveling to America to make a better life. They were fortunate enough to turn things around in one generation and though we probably still have much to learn, a lot of those values that drove the older generation to success were instilled on the younger members and some of my family have already gone off to create very successful companies of their own.

        Currently working on an MVP for a business to business platform providing data and analytics. I've only completed the database so far but have optimized it to run queries which now take milliseconds as opposed to 15-20+ minutes on approximately 6 billion cells of data. My next step now is I'm working on building the backend by linking this up to the Flask Framework to display the data through a webapp. There has been excitement, positive feedback and requests to purchase the product when it's ready for those who I've shown but I have yet to pull through. Still committed and dedicated to completion.

    I guess I am a semi-retired developer. My plan for 2020 is to get a part-time maintenance income job while I build an open-source IT solutions business for SMEs.

    From infrastructure to workflow applications both on-site and in the cloud. I want to move away from Spring(boot) , JPA and Thymeleaf to Python on the backend and probably React on the front-end.

    Hello guys,

    I'm a software dev. I've been working on a side project for a few months now. It'a a visual bug tracking tool for digital agencies and saas companies.

    My goal for 2020 is to bootstrap the project to ramen profitability. Looking forward to my journey as an indiehacker!

    Hello everyone, I'm an experienced computer tech guy for many years from Canada, now living in Panama. Also started programming about 15 years ago I have chosen to work with an European framework maker called PcSoft. It allows me to do desktop, mobile and web apps.
    This year I want to learn enough about Bootstrap to integrate it into my websites, since I find PCSoft's webdev tools to make responsive websites, too frustrating. For everything else, I can do everything I want with the tools.
    If anyone of you could help me with this, I'd be glad paying what I can for your help. But you need to know Webdev and show me what you can do !
    Thank you very much for reading me.

My product was previously built on a "no-code" combination of Coda and Flow XO (chatbot framework), but in December I undertook to learn how to code and I have completed two weeks ago a proper version of the product based on Node + React (slowly implementing it with existing clients). As I don't find my current project super fulfilling (for different reasons), I'm looking to use my newly-acquired programming skills to build something in B2C. Looking forward to interacting with this community along the way!

And it's a game about empathy, intimacy, relationships, people. Also your dialogue choices are tied to Jungian archetypes (trickster, father etc.) I was inspired by Disco Elysium to make this game. My other interests are - I'm pretty good at algorithms, and finishing my first game (it's a vr project where you are cyber-ninja who's flying in space and shoot people with surikens in rhythm to the music). My goal is to find people with whom we can combine our interests and skills to make something impactful and good.

    So I'm hoping to find others in the same position who have an idea they want to develop, yet aren't sure how, or need an extra developer to turn it into reality.

    Hey, my name is Bernardo. I'm finishing my Masters in Nanotech Engineering and since a kid I always like to build my own games and explore all kinds of ideas, that's why programming is so alluring. It gives you so much power. While doing nanotech is great, it requires a lab with really expensive equipment, that and also being stuck in academia not being my long term goal makes me want to keep other doors opened.
    Learning programming on the side seems like my ticket to freedom, and I enjoy the challenge a lot (some of the days ahahah). I'm doing the Complete Web Developer Bootcamp on Udemy and I'm starting Javascript right now.

    Hello fellow Indehackers,

    Good to be on here, my name is Gideon. I love to create amazing products that helps solve problems using technology and ultimately make the world a better place. I am a freelancer working on digital projects as a Product Owner / UX designer - web and mobile apps - B2B and B2C products. I have helped built amazing products for fintech / challenger banks across UK.

    Having developed products for clients, I always wished and had the desire to develop a product of my own. I am now looking and more determined to build a product that will solve problems in emerging markets / countries and empower the lives of people in such environment. I do have an idea (early stage) and speaking to users to help shape up the solution. I joined IH to learn and network from fellow entrepreneurs as I embark on this new journey, hopefully it won't be lonely as I don't have a co-founder as of yet...fingers crossed.

    Hey community! I am Olga.
    I am brand marketer and growth hacker. I find authentic founders and cool teams and help them to shape and launch the products and communicate at best their vision to the world. I also used to build and promote blockchain ventures, now swept back to fiat world, fintech and preparing the launch of Zelf ( – messenger banking. Btw, would love to hear your feedback on it when it's ready! We're putting the finishing touches on the website now.

    Besides Zelf I fell down to rabbit hole of mental health and modern consciousness, and currently building a bot-diary for self-help for those trying to master inner piece (MVP for a bigger concept). It's a side project but I do believe in the future of this venture, so trying to invest every free minute into it. Also thinking of getting MS in Cognitive Science (was thinking about UCL). It truly amazes me how different approaches towards thinking and decision making affect our life and how we can change the reality by simply (hehe not really simply) changing our mental states and models.

    Hello all!
    Excited to be part of the community! I have a technical background in AI (deep RL) and robotics and currently work (day job) on developing autonomous systems as a senior AI engineer at one of the world's most valuable companies. What excites me more is to provide value at scale using my scalable learning systems development skills. I am currently exploring two main ideas. A brief summary is below:

    Idea#1: An app that lets you design & train/teach learning agents without any programming knowledge. For context, see ; This idea goes much beyond; If you are a cool, UX/UI designer or a full-stack/web developer, you might find this pretty interesting.

    Idea#2: An autonomous business model for startups built on the blockchain. An automated business model that is powered by smart contracts & keeps the founders, investors and all employee/contributors happy eternally. Provides an automated flow from ideation->fund-raising->product-dev->sales->customer-feedback including the cash-flow!

    If you are interested in any of the above ideas or have another idea which I can help you with, please please connect! I am looking to share my knowledge, make connections and potentially work together with interested people in this awesome community!

    Who Are You?

    My name is Schalk Neethling and I am a developer from Pretoria, South Africa.

    Why are you here?

    I have always been very interested in the open-source and indie hacker lifestyle :) I love the idea of building your own success and sharing the lessons learned with others in order to help them, help themselves.

    I love the idea of a community of like-minded people who do not want to build their success on someone else's platform. I am not saying we need to all reinvent the wheel, not at all. But there are ways to ensure that what you create belongs to you and that when/if the mothership goes down, it does not take you down with it ;)

    What do you hope to accomplish or learn in 2020?

    I have some high-level ideas for building out a product based around hyper-local communities and small businesses that I want to explore. I would also like to build out my development/consulting business so that I do not constantly fear to lose my one big client and sinking. I essentially have too many eggs in the one basket.

    I have always loved to write and teach but have someone lost that part of me. I would love to pick that up again and see if I can use it to help myself to learn while at the same time generate some "passive" income to supplement my other endeavors.

    Over and above those goals, I want to keep investing in my mental and physical well-being, be more present with my family, and generally enjoy life.

    $20/day is indefinate travel for me, so that sounds nice :)
