Welcome, introduce yourself! (Week of Jun 28th)

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! 🤗

    Hey! I'm Sara, an LA-based digital brand and content strategist and founder of SW Projects. I advise brands, publishers and influencers how to find, engage and grow devoted audiences across digital channels and turn their fans into brand obsessives.
    As a strategist, I have worked with clients like Bumble, the New York Times, National Geographic, Sony Pictures Television, Bustle, Playboy, Overheard, and several A-list celebrities. In my former life, I ran lifestyle partnerships at Facebook & Instagram and was an editor at The Huffington Post, Los Angeles magazine and other leading publications like People and The Economist before that.

    Right now, I'm focused on a project I started mid-April--a live weekly online show called The Digital Campfire Download-- where I interview the creatives and entrepreneurs behind the most kick-ass online communities today (I know, posting in the Community forum on IndieHackers about a community-focused show... so meta). The series is based on a piece I wrote in Feb for Harvard Business Review called "The Era of Anti-Social Social Media" about the move toward smaller more private online spaces and away from public facing social networks, esp. for younger audiences. Deets are here if you want to check out the series or suggest future guests! digitalcampfires.co/jointhenext

    I'm excited to join this community to learn from you all!

    Hey IH community! I'm Austin. 👋

    I have worked at a few different startups, had some brief stints in VC, but have recently found myself drawn to the idea of bootstrapping my own software business. I've been listening to the IH podcast for about a year now.

    I've been kinda dragging my feet with creating an account and starting to build, but here I am! My goal is to launch something (bad, most likely 😅) on ProductHunt by the end of July.

    1. 2

      Hey Austin! Any particular problems you want to solve with your software business?

      1. 1

        Working on it! Not quite sure yet :)

    2. 1

      Sounds great! Do you already have something in mind?

      1. 1

        I've been thinking about just getting something out the door quickly, not too worried about creating a viable business at the moment.

        One quick project I've been thinking about is a new tab page to display my recently closed tabs. I often want to close Chrome but have 20 tabs I don't want to forget about, so I can't close Chrome anxiety-free.

        1. 1

          I think this is a good start to get things going. Wish you all the best on your journey!

  3. 2

    Hey there IndieHacker 👋 I'm Rich, a London based product-focused frontend engineer.

    Thought it was about time I joined the IH community after hearing many great things at @charlierward's Weekend Club.

    Around my day job at TransferWise, I'm hard at work building hellotimo.co. It puts your tasks and time tracking in one place. Filling the gap between the work you've done and your timesheet (or invoice)!

    I've been working on Timo for awhile now, and it's shaping up for a v2 launch... hoping to get that done and to share the experience with you all soon 💪

    Excited to be here!

    1. 1

      Hi Rich, I just looked at your landing page and I really dig the design. Keep it up!

  4. 2

    Hi everyone, my name is Rafael, I'm the CTO of an e-commerce platform in Brazil called Vnda.

  5. 2

    Hello,
    My name is Nicolas, I live in Montreal.
    My project is an iPhone app to manage recommended place. It allows you to save restaurants, bars, etc. so you can find them any time you need them.

    It's already on the App Store, called WhereAndWhen, but there is still a lot of work to do.

    My next project is an app to manage a coin collection.

    Hello @rosiesherry and everyone else! 👋 I'm Nate, with @natemakes as my user name. My story is just beginning.

    I read this interview from 3 years ago on Indie Hackers and it convinced me to join. I'm in my mid-30s, and the last time I did any side projects is now too long ago. But in my teenage years and early 20s I was funding myself through all kinds of side projects...and I want to get back that.

    I'm inspired by the stories here, the opportunities out there, and the ability for me to become an Indie Hacker. What a wonderful community. I hope I can contribute a bit and learn from everyone else. Looking forward to it! 🚀

    Hi, I'm Sebastian!

    I am Rotterdam-based business student and have previously worked for an e-commerce scale-up. I have acquired some great skills in marketing and product management so now I want to challenge myself and start my own online shop. I am currently researching and preparing for the launch of my first products.

    I joined this community to get advice and maybe even to provide advice to others.

    1. 1

      Hey Sebastian, what kind of products are you interested in?

  13. 2

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Manuel. I found out about Indie Hackers and immediately signed up. I'm hoping to launch my new web app Keepsy.app in the new future. Indie Hackers has a lot of resources and people who can help me so I'm hoping to learn a lot and successfully launch with at least more experience than before.

    Thanks Indie Hackers!

    1. 1

      Hey Manuel,
      I looked at your page and was wondering how the software knows that something has happened

      1. 1

        Hi @ju_moseby,

        I understand your question is related to a user dying and how does 9£.keepsy know someone has died. when you signup with a Keepsy.app account you have to setup a Buddy, normally a best friend, family or legal advisor like an attorney or lawyer.

        Once something happens to you, your Buddy can request access to you data. During this request
        Keepsy.app will contact you on several occasions. During this time you can block this user from accessing your data. If by that time you do now answer, your data will be unlocked and your Buddy will have access to your data.

        It doesnt end there, for your peace of mind you buddy will have access to your data for a period of time specified by you. After that time and for security reasons your Buddy will no longer have access to your data. Your account will close immediately and we will permanently close your Keepsy.app account and delete your data for ever.

        1. 1

          Oh that's really interesting. Thanks for taking a second

  14. 2

    Hello everybody, my name is Mo!

    I'm an Arab-American raised in Kuwait but currently living in Los Angeles, I just graduated in May with a degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering, and I have been working as the co-founder of a super-early stage startup that aims to catalyze government transparency through open dialogue and action through advocacy groups.

    After reading multiple stories about the consequences of young people blindly trading on the stock market, I noticed the need for there to be a platform where young investors are introduced to the idea of market research through not diluted, but refactored and modernized indicators and metrics that will allow them to understand why or why not to purchase a specific security. I've been constantly putting it off due to a flooded schedule or laziness but I've decided to type it out here in order to hold myself accountable and have a community to support me through it! I'm also available for any technical or business-related help as I've been through a bit of that in my main hustle!

    Stay safe, and happy hacking!

    -Mo <3

    Hi there, I'm a software engineer working on a sideproject and looking to find the best way to launch my product and gather feedback. I was inspired by another user here to not wait until my project is done and just start with a landing page. Curious on peoples thoughts on this and also, besides twitter, linkedin, what are good places and approaches to sharing the launch of my project.

    Thanks!

  18. 2

    Hi @rosiesherry and community thanks for the welcome message, I am Israel I am from Mexico, I code on JS and PHP, I work for an American company and I have a side hustle creating my first web app service, I hope to have the first release of the service in a couple of months, we have been working hard to make it happen.

    Cheers you all.

    Hi guys! I am Mayank from Bangalore, India :)

    I am working as a product engineer for an employee transportation startup. Well, no more because I resigned today. I am applying for jobs here and there but I also want to work on something.

    There are lots of amorphous ideas in my head about what to build and as of now I am thinking of building some kind of social media/micro-blogging app for people of a specific community to focus on something - very much like this site but the target audience is the rural Indian population.

    Comments and ideas are welcome!

  20. 2

    Hi IH Community! I'm Von Reigor from the Philippines. :)

    I am a Philippine Certified Public Accountant (CPA) by profession who is currently working as an Audit Manager for one of the Big 4 Audit Firms. I have been part of the Assurance/Audit practice for almost 8 years now but my experience for a Sales/IT automation project in our Advisory Service line for an International Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) Company has honed my interest in developing digital business concepts since then to date.

    Currently, I am co-founding a business concept with @CodeDotCare with the goal of enriching every socio-economic class of Philippine or Foreign citizens (especially those in the middle to lower income segments) to take part in their country's financial ecosystem by maximizing the use of their coin money in lieu of interests, gains and rewards. We are now embarking in a survey stage already but would still need some capacity revolving around mobile development. We still have other business concepts in mind that we wanted to push through as soon as the pandemic subsides.

    With that, we are currently looking for a co-founder who has an idea/experience with mobile development and the likes so that hopefully we can launch it very soon. Hoping for an insightful teaming in this community and cheers to everyone's success!

    Please feel free to comment to share your insights.

    On a personal note, I love to sing, cook food and write poems. Solo traveling is also my thing but not during this pandemic. haha

    Stay calm, safe and healthy. Thank you. :)

    Hi Indie Hackers. I'm James. 👋

    Back in the early 00's I made a gaming website that launched my career as a software developer. Since then I've been a back-end software engineer for several fortune 500 financial companies.

    As I transition away from working a desk job I've been carving out time on nights and weekends to create apps that enhance my life (and hopefully yours, too). My first project is Nesteggly. It features free financial software that I've developed based on the years I've spent working in the financial advisory space.

    I'm thrilled to discover a community like this exists. I can't wait to get to know everyone and make even more life-enhancing apps.

    1. 1

      I took a look at Nesteggly, and it takes all the complicated math out of understanding retirement savings. If you ever need assistance in testing, I am an experienced QA and am willing to help.

  22. 2

    Hey IH community! I'm Paresh.

    I am currently in my senior year pursuing engineering at BITS Pilani, India. I have interned in sales at Zomato, a rapidly growing Indian food-tech company in 2018 before it was a unicorn. Also, I've interned at the United Nations to scale their digital marketing efforts in the Asia Pacific region to increase brand awareness regarding online education.

    Currently, I, along with a couple of my friends are building Closer - If Instagram and Tinder had a baby. You can check it out on the playstore at http://bit.ly/becloser.

    Apart from my interest in consumer startups, I'm also curious to explore building software side projects which generate revenue.

  23. 2

    Hi IH's! I'm Rong 🙋🏻‍♂️

    Currently working on a side project called Showwcase, our aim is to build the World's Most Optimised Network for Tech Workers. Why? Because platforms like LinkedIn just isn't great. (Check out the side project here: https://www.showwcase.com)

    Great fan of the community, been reading a bunch of things as an invisible user but now thought I could get some feedback and dialog going! Initially wanted to get into finance, then tried my run at becoming a chef, but then got into tech and coding, and I haven't looked back since!

    Looking forward to engaging!

    1. 1

      I like the look of your site. Keep up the good work!

    Hey Indie Hackers!

    I'm Dave Roma: full stack web developer in NYC - my passion lies at the intersection of coding and online marketing.

    In 2018 I started a web dev studio focusing primarily on HubSpot CMS web development.

    During NYCs mandatory quarantine, I stayed inside for 3 months with headphone and coffee building a digital product: one of the first ever website Themes for HubSpot's CMS

    I'm joining Indie Hackers community to have a place where I can track my product development progress, engage with a community of like-minded hackers seeking to escape the Matrix, and to learn from, and share my learnings with, all of you.

    I look forward to embarking on this journey with the IH community.

    Hi @rosiesherry and all the other people out there! My name is Luuk and I'm from the Netherlands. Right now I'm running my own business building Wordpress websites for clients, but I'm looking for another way to build a business as I believe selling time is not the way to go in the long run...

    I've been a lurker for quite some time now and I wanted to get my hands dirty. That's why I signed up. I really look forward to learn from you all!

    Hello there, I'm Martin from Slovakia.
    I'm a front end developer, working for an insurance company which is not that interesting.

    At the end of last year I started to work on a side project. I asked my GF what can I do to make her work easier so that she can spend more time with me. It was suppose to be this simple small app. It's getting bigger and bigger, and we hope we'll sell it to her employer, because it can save them a lot of money. I'm using Angular because that's what I'm most productive with. And I learned firebase because of it, and I love it.

    I hope I'll finish it in few months and then I would like to work on something else. I have few ideas but I'm also open to cooperation with someone who has knowledge from some domain and has idea but is not a programmer.

    I know of IH from your great podcasts, let me look around. If you want to talk to me, please do :)

    Hey IndieHackers - I'm Mark, a Perth based business owner. I love hacking with novice friendly coding tools/API's and platforms. I'm continually looking at possibilities for innovation and disruption within my business domain (photobooks).

    As a result, I designed an app that can play audio clips related to specific images in a photobook, by use of image recognition. In the end, I had to outsource the coding, as it was way beyond my capability :-(
    Details of the app at bookplayar.com

    I'm keeping my eyes open for one or two local (Australian) flagship projects that could create some publicity buzz, before pushing ahead with the marketing. I have a couple of other initiatives in related areas that I'd love to make a reality, but I'm trying to stay focussed!

    Looking forward to getting inspired by others . . . . and contributing were I can.

    I tried to be a trust fund baby, but in the spirit of failing quickly I put all hopes of easy street on the shelf. In the meantime, I have had a decent career as a software developer/engineer/architect/VP and consultant. I want to build a product-based business now and I plan on lurking around here soaking up and giving back as much as possible. If you made it this far in my greeting, I appreciate your time and hope it mildly entertaining getting to the end. :)

    Hello, my name is Jacky and I am from New York.

    I just recently graduated in May with bachelors in CS. I have a passion in playing games and inline skating. Despite spending 4-5 years in school, I still question myself everyday if I want to work at a company for a career or build games. I've been jumping in variety of fields like web, mobile, and data, hoping that one day it'll be something I can stick with and enjoy in long run, or as a career path.

    Frankly, I haven't gotten any work experience in the tech industry, but I had a few past internships in doing office work. It's been though trying to land my first dev job during this pandemic. So this summer, I've been pushing myself to learn more web development and reviewing Algos/DS, just to stay productive as possible. I have this lingering feeling that I want to spend more time in exploring game development, but I feel that I won't be able to get anywhere with it or have a slim chance of earning income.

    I've been thinking that I should try incorporating my web dev skills and my passion for games together. I recently decided that for a short-term goal, I should try making a personal game blog site to share my thoughts/guides on games that I would be playing. I haven't gotten the entrepreneurial sight of this just yet though. After making my game blog, I was also thinking of connecting it to my personal website.

    I don't really have friends to talk/collab with on dev stuff. I just happened to stumble upon this community and was really curious. I look forward to any responses, comments, ideas, or feedback. Thanks for reading!

    I will keep this brief as I know there are many ideas brewing in your mind, many people for you to help here and in other areas of the world. I’m aware that your insights are in high demand yes? But of course they are.

    While it is just a humble request, I do hope that from time-to-time, you might comment or contribute to a post of mine? Naturally only when you see fit of course. The wild adventure of entrepreneurship calls your name, and I know that you valiantly answer the call.

    As perhaps my name has not reached your parts yet, allow me to introduce myself. I am Cahill (sounds like K Hill). Cahill Camden. While I don’t want to bore you with details of my own adventures here on our first meeting, please do feel free to ask me about growth marketing if you’d like? I have helped a number of companies grow quite quickly over the years and have ventured into a number of areas of tech, e-commerce, and even the Wild West of cryptocurrency and blockchain.

    If you’re ever interested in my own projects, I’m keeping busy on a few at the moment. I’m about to publish a book series (starting with the first of the series naturally, called Decoding Digital: What Is Cryptocurrency). I am also launching a fin-tech startup for e-commerce entrepreneurs to predict their product performance, before spending anything on inventory. I think perhaps you have ventured into this arena before? And finally I'm working on a productivity app to help you build agendas and time your virtual calls. Yes, I know, you’re more than familiar with the virtual realities of Zoom and Skype. And I’d agree, it is quite the changing world we're living through.

    Ah but alas, I understand you must run, and our time together here is running out. I know, just a quick meeting between you and I to get acquainted.

    Again, the honor is mine.

    Until we meet again, best of luck on your entrepreneurial adventure. And as you already know, in the land of the unknown, a world of opportunity awaits!

    Godspeed!

    Hey Indie hackers! Here is Riccardo a Lisbon based Data Analyst working on a SaaS analytics platform with focus on short rental businesses.

    My idea is to productize custom report that were developed for clients. First milestone I am working on is to create a very simple MVP (in the cloud?), test with some possible clients and later on develop the product. At the moment I am working with the low code platform Wappler.

    I am excited to see here so many people with great ideas and a lot of energy! Looking forward to getting some tips and inspiration while helping others!

    Hello! I'm a Denver-based full stack dev. I have an unconventional background in engineering - went to school for it, changed majors, worked in politics for a few years, got back into engineering, self-taught Ruby on Rails, and now I work at a large corporation full time and do freelance development on the side. I'm currently involved in one of the most exciting projects I've ever worked on, building an interactive browser game for a start up, and I am scheming on making it my full time thing eventually, or taking lessons learned here and starting my own business.

    Hello everyone, Mike P here!

    I'm currently employed full-time, have a solo consulting business (https://fractionconsulting.co) that I am bootstrapping, and looking to make my first SaaS product (which is where I will need the most help). It will be in the cybersecurity & regulatory compliance space.

    I am not a software developer, but I know the basics of web development (HTML, CSS, and JS which let me make the website above) and am looking for a low-code solution to make an MVP for a SaaS product idea.

    Glad to join this community and am looking forward to learning from everyone!

    Hi Rosie

    I do believe in the phrase, 'from nothing to something'.
    To be honest I came here because of a video by someone on tiktok, telling me how I can make a thousand dollars easily.
    Even though I don't have any idea /ideas, I do believe through this platform I will surely make more than a thousand dollars a month. It's all because of the care you have shown even to most shy and reserved me.

    I am looking forward to being someone who has become something from nothing.

    Thank you so much

    Regards

    Hi everyone! I'm Lorenzo, an Italian university student, currently enrolled in the final year of a Master's degree in industrial engineering. I've always been passionate about entrepreneurship, programming, and Internet marketing.

    I've decided since March to delve deeper into the world of cloud computing and web development. The web app I'm currently working on is called FluentGenie (https://fluentgenie.app/), whose purpose is to help people master a foreign language through immersion in content (books, articles, videos...) made in that language.

    Really excited to join the Indie Hackers community and share ideas!

    Hey everyone, i'm Robert. I'm building out a social network where people can share their financial goals and encourage their friends on their goals. It's still very early days, but I've already developed some of the basic features. I've still got a day job, so this is being done on the side (like I image many others in the indie hackers community is doing).

    Hi, I'm Ren! A software engineer from the United States, but I have been working and living in Helsinki, Finland for the past two years. I'm currently working as a course creator / platform developer for a University here. I mainly specialize in Web and App development, but my childhood desire has always been Game Development.

    Outside of work, I typically have a number of side projects I'm trying to work through and also live-stream the development. Unfortunately, this has been pretty slow going.

    I've seen Indiehackers pop-up numerous times on my Twitter feed and decided to join this community to stay motivated to finish my projects and grow them

  62. 1

    Hi! I'm Filippo, I'm Italian and here to learn. I'm trying to get something going working on my own. I have to find something to focus all my efforts on, as I tend to be scattered and interested in too many things at the same time.

    Hi All, I'm Eli, a Tutor/Trainer, Educator, online clothing store owner, tech lover and foodie based in Melbourne. I have a large passion for helping young people, and businesses learn and grow through education and/or technology towards. Although, I am still pretty early in my career and new to the start-up space I am extremely excited to learn, collaborate and grow in this space with a community.

    Currently, I am working on scaling Alchemy Story (www.alchemystory.com, as the SEO, is not very good at the moment) and a passion project almost on my own. I am very excited about working on a SaaS-based project that I believe will be a game-changer, however, as a non technically founder it's a bit hard to get it off the ground and running as I am a bit apprehensive to invest all in due with the current Covid-19 context. Although I feel that now (COVID-19) is a great time to launch for the business model, I'm just lacking the expertise and resources to bootstrap everything myself within a reasonable timeframe.

    Any advice or resources you could point me to would be incredibly helpful, on finding a technical fonder and navigating this space to launch a SaaS startup from the idea stage to commercially operating with paying customer and being well funded.

    Essential its a product that will create more jobs in X2C. PM or contact me if want to learn more.

    Keen to hear from you all!

    Hello world! 👋

    I'm Franco, a 19-year-old Computer Science student and Entrepreneur from Argentina.
    I aspire to build exciting startups and businesses in the future!

    Currently working on my first "production-ready" project, Letternews.
    It's an app to improve the newsletter ecosystem, by giving readers a more comfortable way to read and find newsletters! Gonna write a post about it soon.

    Reading success (and failure) stories on IndieHackers and other websites inspired me to get out of the personal projects loop and start working towards something for the world!

    Hope to have a great time here, and wish all of you an amazing day!

    Hi there. I'm Breno, a Brazilian technical writer, and web dev enthusiast. I've been working with content in the tech industry for three years now (after almost ten years in the traditional communication market), and that's where I want to be and create new stuff.

    I've just started a paid newsletter called Tech Scribe (techscribe.substack.com/welcome). My goal for 2020 is to consistently grow the number of subscribers (at least the free ones, initially). By the end of next year, I'd like to have 1,000 paid subscribers.

    I'm not sure how hard that will be in a niche market like mine. I don't know if enough people are willing to pay for a newsletter about writing in the tech industry. But this is what I like to do and to talk about, so I guess it's worth a serious try.

    Hey all, I'm JD - and I just discovered IH! I am an engineering alumni of a few startups and currently working in the Bay Area at a post-IPO company. I'm focusing in growth engineering currently with a passion for creating great user experiences from data. I am currently missing the excitement of working with bright people in a small group solving hard problems quickly and intelligently. I am dreaming of founding or joining the next big company, possibly in ag-tech! I got really into /r/spacebuckets once upon a time - and even developed a prototype of near-ir camera.

    My expertise and interests are broad, but my need to solve problems is acute. I'm currently in the discovery phase of a problem that I can help solve. I'm looking for motivated and open-minded folks to get started today.

    Happy to provide tech consultation pro-bono or give product feedback on SaaS products which I am fairly familiar. I strive to be a valued member of the community!

    Hey IH! My name is Han.

    During this pandemic, I've been wearing disposable blue masks made of non-woven fabric. Wearing them is not too big of a hassle considering how it affects our lives but when I had to wear them for more than 30min, the string earloop did irritate the back of my ears and I felt guilty throwing them away after only using once. I did some search and my girlfriend gave me this reusable mask made of copper-infused fabric from South Korea. It felt so comfortable against my skin and the earloop didn't irritate the back of my ears at all. I found the factory of this mask in Korea and my goal is to start selling them online along with the pocket sanitizer.

    As we all are, I'm getting really tired of this COVID situation and people not wearing masks. 2020 has been really stressful for all of us and we need science, creativity, and problem-solving skills more than ever. I am in the process of creating a brand that embodies this mantra and made a landing page to get some feedback from the community. Once I have some feedback I will iterate on the product and will be launching the e-commerce site before the fall (October).

    Please check out my landing page and let us know if there is anything that you want on your facemask. https://www.get-bazinga.com/

    Cheers!

    Howdy! I'm Connor, a designer in California. I've been working for tech companies for a long time but recently left my job at the beginning of March to bootstrap a new company with my friend... perfect timing!

    We've spent the last few months doing customer development, building, and pre-sales for our product Rewatch and we recently closed on our first annual contract for a few thousand seats. It's a start!

    Currently, I'm focused on reaching more potential customers. One tactic we're trying is by providing value with a free app called Remote that helps folks running all-hands presentations that want to use a single slide deck. Remote gives the presenters the ability to control the slides from anywhere. We're seeing good feedback so far and hope to convert that into more sales conversations soon.

    Anyway! I'm here to learn and stay positive. Thanks!

I created a web app named musical countries (url: https://app.musicalcountries.co/explore) where you can share and find folk music from all countries of the world. There are many people that are interested in folk music or discovering new music, however, I have struggled to create a community that keeps going back/using the web app.

    From my time working with Juggle, a company of four moms, I realized that there were a lot of founders out there who faced the challenge of navigating the development process. So I founded Knit with one of my best friends, and we are trying to differentiate ourselves by making a priority to educate our clients in technology fluency while we build and bring their initial products to market.

    Outside of startups, I'm a passionate musician, board-gamer, and rock climber.

    Hey Indies! I am Haja. Had my first failed startup (clezer.com) and decided to learn to code afterward. Its far from being an easy journey, but how cool (and to rewarding) it is when you are able to give life (at least the MVP) to what you have in mind? Without paying tones of money for someone else to do it for you 😎? Since then I am on a experimentations mode, sharpening my tech skills along the way ... lets see where all of this bring me. What for sure is that I find lots of inspirations (and motivations) in this community. Hope I will be able to give back some day. My humble twitter handle is here https://twitter.com/haja_andriam Not very active lately but preparing some announcement soon 🚀

    Hi everyone, I am super new to the whole maker community. I have been working as a dev for a long time, but last year decided it's time to build a SaaS business. :) It was fun so far but now I got to the point to launch and I realised, I don't know much about launching products, marketing, etc. So I am here to learn.
    My product is called Yuzu Metrix. It's a unique twist on the whole influencer marketing analytics & reporting idea. I want to empower influencers to get more work while helping the agencies and brands to navigate this crazy and often fake world.
    Yuzu Metrix (https://yuzumetrix.com) is used by influencers to create end of campaign reports which they submit to their clients. The reports can be collected into campaigns to get an overview of ROI and reach.
    As I said, I am here to learn. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to chat. Also, thank you for Indie Hackers for creating this community. :)

Consistency and innovation are my objectives that motivate and encourages me to observe, analyze and by inventing, contribute my skills to the artistic society.

    Hey! I'm Gino, a developer, and founder based in the Netherlands (Rotterdam). I co-founded shipright.co, a tool to collect and prioritize product feedback.

    Before Shipright, I created products for other companies through a design/dev shop I started with friends from uni. We decided to "pivot our agency into a SaaS company"... That was super hard 🤯, but it kinda worked out and I learned a ton in the process.

    Goal - Learn and share experiences/ideas. I'm now learning about community building, Indie Hackers seemed like a great example.

    I might be able to help if you're stuck in the idea phase or you struggle to decide which idea/project to pursue. Happy to connect!

    Hi, I'm Ken, a software test engineer based in Los Angeles, California. Since 2012, I have worked full-time in QA across several industries, including wireless telecom, situational awareness, small business marketing and finance, testing everything from a 4G-LTE RF certification tool to a mobile alerting app for first responders and nurses. Currently I work for Warner Bros. and am helping them automate hundreds of tests for a new company-wide CMS they are building. In the near future, I want to transition into development, using my testing experience to build meaningful things of high quality and performance.

    I discovered the IndieHackers podcast and site through Code Drip, a YouTube dev channel, and I look forward to connect with all of you. If anyone needs help with testing (functional, performance, visual), I'm happy to help!

    Hi All, I am Eric. I have worked in the technology field for a quite bit of time. My background ranges from application programming, full-stack web development, DevOps, and managing development teams.

    I recently left a startup in a leadership role to focus on my own business. After running a consulting business for a while, I am looking for some inspiration to build Saas based products as side projects as well as helping people with interesting projects

    Hoping to meet like-minded people and get inspiration on product ideas and turn them into reality. Also looking to collaborate with others to learn and help each other.

    Hi all,

    My name is Scott and I live in Denver, Colorado. My background is technical and I am experienced in backend, web-frontend, and data-engineering stacks. Most recently, I was an engineering manager for a team of 4. I left my job earlier this year with the goal of building something that matters. Before I can do that though, I would like to integrate into the community and meet potential business partners.

    I believe the best way to know if you're personally compatible with someone is to just start working on something together. So if you have a small project in mind, let's hack on it and see if we click! Bonus points if you live in Colorado!

    Hi IH Community! My name is T.J., and I’m a software engineer based in Seattle.

    My goal is to improve the developer experience through education, software tools and storytelling. As more people from all walks of life continue to enter the world of software development it is becoming important to address the status quo of the software development industry as it misses the expectations of work that is rewarding, meaningful, healthy and ethical.

    As a professional of 10+ years, I’ve made a career as a highly collaborative DevOps practitioner. I have been tasked with building processes and tools to make organizations work together effectively and scale sustainably. This was accomplished by communicating directly with the people in positions of high friction to identify sources of pain from their organizations and advocating with management to support strategies and tactics that benefit both workers and business goals.

    My primary goal is to stop fearing judgement and join a community of other content creators while I learn how to be successful as a software blogger for DevOps and Development Experience topics. Additionally, I am also focused on my Rust-based open-source side project OrbitalCI.

    Hey!

    I've been following Rosie on Twitter and then thought 'Hey ho, I'm an indiehacker, and community builder, and I should join Indie Hackers'.

    I'm here to learn how to build an online community around The Lifefulness Project. My expertise is around building in-person community, so while there's a lot of similarities there are also big differences.

    My goal is to create products and services that enable people to build soulful company cultures and joyful local communities. I'd love to get help and support, and give help and support.

    Best, S

    Hello world!
    My name is Vladimir, I’m 27 years old. I'm an information security specialist. I have been working on my ARKNet project for the last two years. It’s a platform for secure private communication between a team of employees, clients and partners. During this time, I wrote a software package for the ARKNet server, client servers, and user applications – everything by my own; and now the platform is finally ready for the first users.

    Here’s a website:
    https://arknet.space

    Now I’m looking for like-minded people, who share my interests in creating and developing decentralized and fault-tolerant business tools. I developed ARKNet by myself, that’s why any help for further development of the platform will be highly appreciated!

    Hi! I'm Bookoff (it's my nickname), I live in Russia.

    I quit my job a few days ago. I have worked as a product analyst at 3 game developer companies for 5 years. Analyzing data with Python, SQL, and other similar tools was my key competencies.

    Right now, my goal is to create mobile applications for billions of people.

    I already have my own app in AppStore, but user audience is very very very small. I also have two more ideas for the next applications.

    I think this community will help me to stay motivated, and I will be helpful for somebody here.

    Hi,

    I am Mohsin. I am co-founder & CTO of an Ed-Tech startup. For the first 5 years of my career, I worked with early stage and mid-sized startups, before I decided to build my own stuff. While working in my last job, created a healthcare startup that got acquired, giving me a chance to go full time. That is when my co-founder and I collaborated and built our 1st product. Since then, him & I have built 5 different products over the past decade:

    • social platform for discussions & debate around current affairs (shut down because couldn't scale it beyond a point)
    • AI Bot for music recommendation based on user's mood (acquired),
    • Blockchain based youtube alternative (shut down)
    • Second screen engagement platform for TV viewers (dormant after a decent revenue and DAU run)
    • Handwritten answers evaluation & online assessment platform for school & colleges (pre-series A and growing)

    Recently, I have started building a few more side projects and am focussing on improving my skills, beyond technology, needed to take off a SaaS product. Most of the products/projects are working on, are focussed more around creating a robust framework to start from an idea and take it to a substantial DAU. Revenue would be a plus obviously, but not really the point of focus.

    Hoping to learn & grow here, seek help and help others in whatever capacity I can.

    Hello! I'm Diana from Brooklyn :)

    I have 10+ years working in business development at media / tech / adtech companies (Outbrain, Opinary) where I partnered and led deal negotiations with large media co's (CNN, NBC, Conde Nast, etc).

    Earlier this year I decided to take a different path and took over running a small SaaS business focused on Google Ad optimization called Fiuti.com, which focuses on single keyword ad groups (skags). It's been a fun learning curve and I still have a lot to learn about how to scale a SaaS. Would love to find partnership opportunities and/or advice on how to grow it out.

    Also looking to work on additional businesses in growth capacity or take them over full via acquisition.

    Please reach out and say hi :)

    Hey IH!

    I'm V. I'm a Product Designer and have been working for 5+ Years in different startups building apps and products. In the midst of COVID-19 and due to a general interest to be independent, I have recently switched to a full-time freelance career for the first time in my life.
    I dropped out of college when I was 18 and started working till now, and this is kinda the scariest decision so far. But, I am sure I can spend my time more on the things I can build and take on more interesting projects as a freelancer.

    This is my personal website: https://www.madebyv.xyz

    Hey everyone, my name is Sam. I run two companies right now...not by choice.

    I've boostrapped Snapbar (www.snapbar.com) for the past 8 years with my brother. We were, until 3 months ago, a busy event services company that specialized in photo and video booth products and technology.

    COVID-19 derailed the events industry, though, and about 99% of that business with it.

    We went from #473 on the Inc 5000 list last year to barely surviving this one. We grew Snapbar from $0 in 2012 to 3.1 million in 2019. We were on track to have a pretty fabulous 2020.

    Anyway, in March, we had to change most of what we were doing. We had a full-time team of 18 and no revenue coming in. In fact, we were bleeding cash because of all the event refunds we owed that were cancelling more than 30 days out.

    So, on March 11th we had an idea to pivot and we launched a new site on March 18th called Keep Your City Smiling (www.keepyourcitysmiling.com). It's a gift box company that supports small businesses in cities around the US.

    Within the first 3 months of KYCS we got to 500k in revenue. It's been a wild ride so far.

    At the same time, Snapbar has been working on trying to stay relevant and about a month ago we launched a new photo booth product we call Virtual Booth which is growing steadily.

    Good to be here. Excited to learn. I'm a big fan of bootstrapping. While independence and freedom are big parts of my attraction to it, I also love the creative, hiring, and strategic constraints it puts on people and companies.

    Cheers.

    I just graduated in Computer Science and will soon be moving to DC mid-pandemic. I really enjoyed working on startup ideas and digital platforms in college and want to continue to do so.

    My current side project is a visual analysis of MLB batters' strengths and weaknesses to help inform pitchers on how/what to pitch for any given player. We're hoping to launch sometime in August!
    Not sure what side project I'll pick up afterwards but that's part of the fun.

    Looking forward to getting to know you all and seeing what we can build together!

    Hi all, I'm Davidson.

    I'm a long time "one man band" filmmaker (www.bigfootage.net) and have been learning Python in the past year or so. I am now trying to finish my first SAAS product - an audio / video transcription, SRT, and title generation service. At this point, I have a decent understanding of Python (and several working scripts!) but getting those programs online in the form of 100% usable "apps" is totally new for me (currently on the Flask + Heroku part of my journey). I'm very DIY-minded and have really enjoyed the challenge of this whole process. I'm a big fan of the Indie Hackers podcast, which has been a great source of information and inspiration, and am excited to finally participate in the community.

    Hey Indy Hackers, I'm happy to have found this community! I love listening, reading, meeting passionate people of any fields.

    After YEARS of trying to complete, or at least start, a side project, I've accomplished It yesterday! A web app for a friend. An herbarium built with Angular and Firebase.

    After A LOT of failures and A LOT of errors and stress, finally I manager to finish something for fun, something usefull for someone.

    This personal win gave me a lot of energy. I can finish something, wow, beyond my job as junior full stavo developer.

    Now I want more. I'm searching for something fun to do, some field to master!

    I want to take my time, some weeks maybe, searching, reading, listening, thinking, askying me the right questions with one goal: to find a passion.

    Have a great day.

I had a 'one man' company from 2014 to 2020, which went really well until the pandemics started. I'm really excited with the Data Science universe and, for now, what I want is to connect with people here and to be able to work in the DS field soon. Because I love math, coding and statistics. I'm really looking forward to meet some great people here! :)

    Hey, I'm Alex. 👋 I actually work on my own projects, such as science data learning, Artifficial Intelligence and Machine Learning. If someone wants to know, YES, I work at Google as a software engineer for the past 10 years.

    My goal is to make a machine learning app, like a learning videogame, where the computer must understand and learn how to play.

    I hope we all have a great time! Thank you for reading my comment!

    Hi IH! I'm Jens. I bootstrapped my SaaS company Benchmarking Alliance (http://www.benchmarkingalliance.com/) into a profitable business, left daily operations in 2017 to join a VC firm but my dream was always to somehow make a living from "knowledge". Will be looking for ways to do so - could be through hacking, teaching, investing in EdTech companies or otherwise.

    Was searching for solutions to automate a couple of workflows and landed here. The no-code community and side projects are amazing.

    Hi! I'm Gina.

    I've always been drawn to the Indie Hacker-lifestyle but haven't been able to commit to any particular project. I struggle with feeling like I need to understand the nitty-gritty of getting a website up-and-going so that I'm not dependent on finding a technical co-founder/external vendors and can reuse those skills for future websites. But then the flip side is I don't think it's the best use of my time to focus on those things. I can understand how to build apps conceptually and at a high-level technical design but not enough to start coding, find hosting, etc. Would love to talk to anyone that either 1) decided to teach themselves how to code and be self-sufficient or 2) found a co-founder or funded external development.

    Some topics/possible business ideas that have interested me is content around Product Management, software around advocacy amplification, and vendor/consultancy rating site (Yelp for Big Consulting Companies).

    I'm a B2B Product Manager based in Seattle by day and always love to talk to more people about the problems they're trying to solve. Drop me a note!

    Hi all,

    I just discovered this website off a google search for "Ways to share your side project", and immediately registered on hitting the land page. It looks like an amazing group, doing exactly the kind of stuff I'm interested in. I'm excited to learn more!

    I like putting together side projects for different things I'm interested in. My general approach is to come up with an idea, build a website in react, a service to back it in python, and then try to share it with people.

    I'm interested in machine learning, writing, podcasts, YouTube, and web development. I've made a few minor websites, written a couple medium posts, and have a small YouTube channel. Eager to do much more in the future!

    Hi everyone!
    I'm Juan, I'm a software developer. I was looking for ideas to start a side project and I just arrived here, you guys seem to be a cool community :D

    Hi,

    My name is Ben and I run a website over at https://www.fantasyfootballdatapros.com where we use coding and data science to win at Fantasy Football.

    I currently have released one product - a course on how to apply Python and Machine Learning to Fantasy Football. The course has been a success so far and I'm ready to move on to bigger things with the site. Over the next couple months, leading up to Fantasy Football drafts in August, I plan on releasing a couple more products including a subscription-based analytics portal that leverages several Machine Learning algorithms to help users make data-informed Fantasy Football picks.

    Hello IHackers 👋 I hope you are doing well. I am AK

    I am a non-technical founder currently working on a side project revolving around summarizing and organizing video content. I am looking for technical co-founder who could help me in building an MVP and test out the idea!

    I am based out of Iowa and work as a product owner at a startup called BarnTalk. Its like Nest for the livestock industry.

    If you are interested in learning more about BarnTalk or my side project, connect with me on LinkedIn @ annamalai-kathirkamanathan. I am down to zoom over a cup of coffee 😀

    Thanks @rosiesherry for helping me out!

    👋 Hey there indiehackers!
    🚀 I am a Toronto-based science fiction set designer in the TV industry (Star Trek, The Expanse).
    🌉 I first discovered XR at TechCrunch Disrupt in SF about 4 years ago and have been hooked on VR (especially TiltBrush) ever since.
    🧠 I am deeply interested in the intersection of VR and psychology, especially storytelling and mental wellbeing. In September I'll be retiring from film to start research at the University of Waterloo, looking at the cognitive neuroscience of spatial thinking.
    🏰Funnelling all my prior experience and the results of my research into my long term side project, Palace Path. A virtual space for real life personal transformation. (palacepath.com)
    Will eventually need a technical co-founder but am currently learning C# to build some semblance of an MVP on my own.

    Hello IHackers! I'm currently part of a successful startup that raised a couple of rounds of angel and VC capital and going strong.

    Hi IHers, I'm Javier.

    I've always worked in private sector and now building a product as a side project called HTTP Sink, like RequestBin in its V1 but design from the ground to serve as an API mockup and integration hub with other APIs.

    I've been here in IH for a while using my personal account, now using an account with the app domain. Baby steps.

    Cheers.

    Hi I'm Eduardo, software developer from Colombia 🇨🇴

    I have been coding for a few years now. Been working on the payments industry in LATAM.

    I want to build something for my own.

    Sometimes I get some ideas then I think that everything is already built in, coming up with good ideas is kind of hard.
    Looking for some inspiration on IH. Looking good so far 😊

    Hey y’all - long time lurker, first time poster here. We’ve been through a real journey over the last 8 years, growing the Burner app from 0 to north of $10m in app store revenue. I’ve always enjoyed being of help to others on a similar journey and am looking to do more. I would be especially happy to help any under-represented founders, or those considering VC vs non-VC paths.

    Hi everyone!

    I'm an entrepreneur from Portugal with more than 15 years experience working with NET Core and Xamarin for building great applications! Built the software for one of the biggest portuguese delivery food company with web and mobile apps and courier delivery real time tracking and so on.

    Currently looking for ideas and people who can get me into the right track for building our product/service!

    Hi everyone
    Up to now I have worked with dozens of tech-entrepreneurs and helped them stand out in their category. Also the host of a podcast(Value Inspiration) with the purpose to share compelling stories about the value we can unlock when tech & people blend in the right way.
    That inspired me to publish a book about that this year (The Remarkable Effect) in which I dig deep into the question: What's the secret behind the software companies we keep talking about. That became a framework of 10 different traits. I am now part of an early stage startup - and that drove me to become part of Indie Hackers.

    Hello, I'm Keira!

    I have spent the last few weeks designing my website and will be launching it officially today! I specialise in creating hand-drawn digital illustrations of people's pets so please check out my website at www.khpetprints.com and let me know what you think!

    My goal is to enhance my marketing on google, facebook and instagram so any advice would be much appreciated.

    Hi.

    I am co-founding my first business in the web-development market. Our ideas and execution set us apart from anything available. We stand on the shoulders of giants so to speak and we want to give back when we can.

    I'm looking forward to the launch of our platform but with every day that passes a new set of problems and their solutions come to mind, and the launch date seems to be further away for that reason.

    I am here to learn if I can, help if I can, keep myself motivated and maybe talk to like-minded individuals before and after we manage to launch and get our first batch of customers.

    Hi I am Joachim.

    I am experienced software developer from the Netherlands.
    I've been working mostly in the creative digital content creation industry accept for a short stint working at a large-scale research facility for over a decade.
    I've gone to be freelancer about two and half years ago working on project basis and have also been working on my own business ideas.

    My main focus now is the "holly triangle" of Deep Learning, Computer Graphics & Computer Vision. Got lots of large very ambitious ideas. However I might be very good on development and product design & strategy. I certainly not that experienced when it comes to business & customer strategy, growth & development, marketing, sales and all these other more soft skill type of things.

    Goal for this year is to get one of those ideas of mine into a proper business that hopefully can sustain itself and organically grow over time.

    Hey guys 😀

    I'm an Internet Marketer with a ton of experience in growing client-based businesses to six-figures quickly. I primarily use Sales Funnels & Facebook Ads to bring in 50-90 leads/booked calls per month for client based businesses, expert entrepreneurs, coaches, consultants & course creators.

    Huge marketing nerd, I study marketing, copywriting, funnels & conversions non-stop!

    My big goal is to currently take my own client business to 7-figures by the end of 2020. Look forward to connecting with all you indie hackers and exchange ideas on how to grow businesses profitably!

    Hey All,

    I am a senior engineer with experience to build massive scale (500K QPS) & highly critical microservices, many mobile apps/sites etc. Apart from work, I love pursuing innovative ideas and technologies. I recently quit my job to start working for myself.

    I am here to learn how to build my own profitable business in 2020 and collaborate with people who share the same passion.

    Hey Guys! My name is Greg.

    I'm an programming enthusiast, who is really interested in starting his own business. As of now, I'm working as a Quality Analyst at a local multinational company, which I enjoy, but I feel like it's not enough for me, and I want to work on my dreams, not someone else's. However, it has given me the oppurtunity to learn a lot of things, and get paid in the process, so I am more than grateful.
    As for technical skills, I have been using mainly Python for the past two years, but I have also learned Java. My main intererst right now, is web development, and right now, I am focusing on learning about Django and Angular.
    The two things I enjoy the most are learning new things, and teaching. In the past year or so, I've had lots of different ideas, but I feel like teaching is something I want to focus on the most in the long run. However, to be a good teacher, I need real life experience, so I'm currently trying to start doing some freelance work, as well as teaching.
    My ultimate goal is to provide useful educational content on youtube, as well as launching an educational site (This site would be in hungarian, as it is my mother tongue), where I would teach programming. Making some money off of this is something I want, but is not the primary goal.

    Hi All,
    My name's Chris and I've just completed the launch of my app, Magic Reader 2 (https://www.magicreader.mobi) - an app to teach kids how to read English through phonics. It was a bit of a slog so I thought I'd look on line to find support and fellow travellers on the startup journey.

    I'm from the UK but currently based in Beijing. I've been building up my coding skills over the last year and a half and am now pretty decent, especially in Swift (IoS). I'm looking forward to carrying out more projects in the future, so looking forward to meeting and chatting with likeminded people. :) Take care for now.

    Hi IndieHacker community!

    I am Amogh, spent 8+ years in tech as a Product manager, and have launched 2 startups previously.

    Currently I am building GlobalHome - Marketplace for discovering pre-vetted International Properties.
    This month, we launched it for Non-resident Indians (NRIs) who are looking to buy properties in India
    https://www.getglobalhome.com

    Goal for 2020 is to launch and validate in two markets - India (residential properties for NRIs) and Mexico (vacation homes for US residents)

    Looking for feedback on GlobalHome, and connecting with growth hackers and prop-tech partners.

    Hi all! Joe here. I currently work as a developer advocate at my day job. I joined IH because I want to write an ebook and launch content products. Looking forward to meeting other content creators!

    1. 1

      That's really cool, what kind of content products?

      1. 1

        Mostly ebooks, PDFs, and bundles (with video content). Kinda like what you see offered from Recfactoring UI or other groups selling tiers (like a book at the lowest bundle and then videos plus the book at the highest tier). We'll see though!

        1. 1

          Oh so gumroad type products?
          I hadn't heard of refactoring ui until now. Thanks, I've been looking for a way to actually learn to make a good UI

          1. 1

            Yeah more or less! Here's another example (fellow IH @swyx) https://www.learninpublic.org/

            Oh awesome. I'm glad to hear that!

            1. 1

              Sweet, definitely an interesting business model
