Welcome, introduce yourself! (Week of Mar 8th)

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! 🤗

    Hi all!
    My name's David - I'm a full-stack developer - primarily using a serverless stack of aws cognito / dynamodb / lambdas (python) / s3 (react static site).

    I am currently working on a social enterprise startup aiming to get businesses to integrate charitable incentives into their conversion flows. - Think "I will plant a tree for every person that signs up". Hoping to further expand into consumer markets who are looking to contribute to social causes.

    I can always use design and copy feedback!

    I look forward to meeting people on this platform!

    1. 2

      I love this idea. LeaveMeAlone did this (tree planting) and I opted in for it.

      I don't like how the big companies do it, they make it feel dry and like it probably doesn't have real impact. I always worry that the end charity won't get the fair cut at the end too.

  2. 4

    My name is Steven and I will graduate with my BS in information technology in 3 months. I have been mostly self taught as a programmer. This year I have set a goal to start working for myself and create websites for customers wanting to expand or improve their business.

  3. 4

    Hi Rosie! I am software engineering with 14 years of experience in software development. I joined this great community to learn and find a potential co-founder for my next startup. Thanks!

    1. 1

      Be sure to have a look at our Looking to Partner Up group, but also just try to get to know people. The forum is great for that as are local IH type meet ups.

  4. 4

    hi my wife and myself owns 2 companies in singapore. we have decent income but end up we dont have time. We are here to seek partners as well as learning how to build a online business which dobt eat into our valuable time. thanks

    1. 1

      Nice! Fellow singaporean fam!

  5. 4

    Hi Rosie, I'm a student up for some small project and some guidance from this platform.

  6. 4

    Hi,

    I'm a "starter" from Istanbul. I started my company 9 years ago, but it went out of business last year. Now I want to go back to basics and start over.

    1. 1

      Sorry to hear that about your business. I hope you can find a way through here to start up again.

      1. 1

        Thanks Rosie. I hope I'll find a way. Burnout and depression is real. People should talk about these aspects of entrepreneurship too.

        1. 1

          Yes, it's definitely not always easy. I went through my own burnout in my previous business.

          We also have a Self Care group to try to help talk about it too.

  7. 3

    Hi everyone,
    My name is Farida. I currently work as a registered nurse. I am an aspiring beautypreneur. My goal is to use all the knowledge I have acquired in healthcare and healthy living to translate that into the beauty industry. I am passionate about safe haircare for black women so my first purpose is to produce a 100% natural safe and sustainable hair care line for black women who wear their natural hair. I joined Indie hackers to find some inspiration in my journey and hope to inspire others along the way.

    1. 2

      oooo we should connect. Working in a similar space :)

      1. 2

        Absolutely Rita. I would love to connect with you. What works best for you?

        1. 1

          My email is [email protected]
          I think it'll be easier to connect there

    2. 1

      Hey Farida, My wife and I use to own a salon (she is still in the biz) for 20 years. I'm a developer, researching opportunities in healthcare. Maybe we can trade industry info!

  8. 3

    Loving what I'm seeing so far, you got a great community here. Happy to have stumbled in!

  9. 3

    Hi Rosie! I am a soon-to-be Electrical Engineering graduate. My Co-Founder and I have just launched our mobile application Prospre that generates meal plans for specific nutritional goals. I want to learn how we can increase our retention. I would love to learn about mobile analytics, and communicating with early adopters to help improve our product.

    1. 1

      Just checked it out. Nice work. I will start playing with it from now on.

      1. 1

        Hey ACGOFF, thanks for the compliment! So glad to have you checking it out. You can always reach me on here on IH if you have any feedback! I would love to hear about your experience with the product.

  10. 3

    Hi Rosie! I am a Software Developer and I am highly motivated to develop new innovative things.I always wanted to start my startup but I don't no where to start from and how to be successful and that is why I am here to learn from the community.

    Hi Rosie! I'm a freelance sports photographer based in Texas. My portfolio is online at www.k6creative.net. My goal is to help teams, athletes, and brands craft meaningful stories through compelling visuals. I primarily shoot soccer, although I have experience shooting a variety of sports. I'm working on strategies to find new clients and outlets for my work, developing a stronger portfolio, and improving inbound marketing strategies. I can't wait to grow and learn as a part of this community! Any tips on where to start here for sports photography?

    1. 1

      Hey, looks cool. You might wish to connect with BrynBonino.com - she's in TX, too, and super-friendly. Feel free to mention my name if you reach out.

      1. 1

        Thanks so much for the suggestion, I'll definitely take a look!

    2. 1

      Oh, that's an interesting niche. Some great photos there too.

      Have you thought about creating stories around these? Or a newsletter-esque type approach?

      1. 1

        Thanks for taking a look! I've thought a bit about it as I have experience building emails in a variety of platforms, but I would love some suggestions about where you think this could go. I don't see many photographers combining photos and stories themselves, so maybe there is an opportunity to do a bi-weekly or monthly long-form email on an interesting topic related to an event I shot. I'm also toying around with the idea of starting a podcast about sports and using that to complement my sports photography (hosted on a different domain). Or I could host long-form stories on the website and begin sharing them on social media. I appreciate your advice!

    Hi,

    1. 1

      Hi Colin, would love to chat about your experience as a CTO in the UK Startup Space

    2. 1

      Hi Colin, I'm Brendan. Who knows, you may yet build the next tech giant! I'd love to be a part of it though.

    Hey everyone!

        Hey jas_hothi. Thanks! Hoping all is well on your end :)

  14. 2

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Ben and I'm a full stack software engineer primarily working on Laravel and React projects. In January 2018, I started a project called Sprint Boards (https://sprintboards.io) which I had initially created as a small internal tool for my colleagues and friends to use, but it has since morphed into a product of its own!

    It's an online retrospective tool for Agile developers: for the less nerdy audience, it's a tool that software engineers use during their technical meetings. 🙂

    But despite that, I've learned from user feedback that some companies use it for other purposes too – such as gathering feedback or ideas from their employees, managing reminder lists and even as a simple project management tool. It can be used in a wide variety of meetings.

    Starting this project has been the best decision I have ever made: it has allowed me to follow my dream of working independently and running my own business. There is still a long way to go, but I am so thrilled with the progress over the past two years.

    Any feedback on Sprint Boards would be warmly welcome and greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Hii all
    My name's Shivam - I am a UI developer. I would like to share my knowledge with all I hope any buddy need my help, please tell me

  16. 2

    Hi Rosie,

    I'm excited to be apart of the community. My name is Colton. I'm a full-stack software developer. Rails is my stack of choice. I'm enjoying learning from @excid3 and being apart of his GoRails community as well. I left my job at the end of 2019 to chase my dream of starting my own business. I'm currently working as a freelance developer during the day and working on building my first SaaS product on nights and weekends. My goal is $2000 MRR by the end of 2020.

    1. 1

      Awesome @ko1ton 🤘Great to have you in the community! What's your SaaS?

      1. 1

        @excid3 I have a client that is needing a custom LMS that I think that I can re-sell to other companies in their industry. The client has agreed to help cover part of the initial development costs in exchange for a reduced monthly price once it's ready. Seems like a pretty good deal if I can actually get other companies to sign up.

        1. 1

          Great! Have any leads on other companies that might want it? I'd probably start trying to chat with them immediately and see if I can get them to help fund development early on as well.

  17. 2

    Hi! I'm new. My name is Milos. :) I'm part of a startup called Hummguide which is a travel marketplace app.
    Nice to meet you all.

  18. 2

    Hello everyone, this is Jon from whatifi. By day, I run a visual effects company in Vancouver that creates digital magic for movies and TV projects. Evenings and weekends, we're taking some of the creative workflows and techniques from the exciting world of VFX and applying them to the boring and dry world of.... personal finance...

    No spreadsheets. No formulas. All visual.

    Whatifi sell my house and move to another city? Whatifi change careers, get a raise, start a family or take a year off? Whatifi inherit money? Whatifi can't make my budget cover my student loans?

    Think mind-mapping where people can create spider webs of decisions and options and visually connect them all together to visually build multiple financial scenarios and then run financial calculations through all of those unique threads. If-this-then-that....

    We're pretty far along. Going live in a few weeks. Looking to connect with other founders as we transition from ideas to reality. Expecting some lumps and bumps as we get feedback and try to build more traction.

    Two flavours to our product:

    One is a B2C version (this is the one we will be releasing first) for everyday people to build and share financial plans and scenarios with their family and friends - https://subscribe.whatifi.io/signup/

    The second is a B2B2C product for Financial Advisors and Planners to use with their clients - https://subscribe.whatifi.io/for-business/

    Looking forward to learning more about how other folks are hacking their early phases.

    Hi, I'm Ngan. I am currently staying in Vietnam and starting to work on my own project which my partner and I are really passionate about. We are so far in the beginning stage of the project.
    We have a certain amount of time in management roles. The idea for our project came up during this working time since we started noticing some deep problems besides a manager's daily tasks. My current task is to study further about the managers' pains so we can see how our product can solve some of the current problems the managers are facing. I'm glad to join the community here. Thanks!

    Hey there! I'm Cristian and I'm a Java software architect, formerly a co-founder and technical director at a video streaming startup. Lately I've been working remotely on enterprise software projects doing code reviews and Java Spring back-end development. The enterprise software world is kinda boring so I'm looking to contribute to a more dynamic startup as I miss my own days of start-up-ing. I'm not at all good with sales and marketing so I would be eager to meet some founders who have those skills and I could do the coding.

    1. 1

      Hi Cristian!

      When looking for marketers and salespeople, imo, the #1 trait to look for is willingness to test and learn.

      Good luck!
      Brett from marpipe :D

    Hey Everyone,
    My name is Alex, I am a jack of all trades. I code, I design, I do business development @ companies like IBM. I am fed up with corporate and am looking to start being a full creative!
    My first project is a daily hours tracker.
    I have tracked each and every hour for the last two years and have build a web app that links directly with google sheets so is server less and allows the user to own all their data! Tracking has helped me focus on what is important to me and highlighted where I waste time. Consequently, I focus more on triathlon and less on Reddit and Facebook than before!

    I would love to help any and everyone with design, product, or business!

    1. 1

      Sounds interesting, I hope you can share it with us when the time is right. Sounds like the productivity geeks would be keen to see that.

      I think I'll go on a run that I've been procrastinating now!

    2. 1

      Hi. Can I ask where you are based?

    Hello!

    My name is Mashia - I am a first time Founder@knoME & Scrum Master.

    The goal of the knoME software is to strengthen the relationship between managers and employees. The truth is the way you feel about the company you work for is directly related to your relationship with your manager. We know that leadership & management training is lacking and we want to make it easier for managers to help you.

    In 2020 the goal is to get 2-3 customers, iterate on the software, develop a sales pipeline, and get a developer to either join our team or help us develop.

    Hi Rosie
    My name is Yongho. I'm a self-taught programmer and a solo founder as others in this platform. I've also often listened indie hacker podcasts and got new thinking, indirect valuable experiences and perspectives from others. I appreciate that. I've been working on my project for a year and launched my program three months ago. The results so far is bad. But I will continuously work on this project by iterating, learning, and evolving. I look forward to learning from others and simultaneously sharing something I know in this web site.

    Hey folks, my name is Clark and I'm an iOS developer who knows enough about other stacks to get into trouble :)

    Over the past few years, I've built a water polo stats app as a free V1. You can find some info about it here: https://www.cbwaterpolo.com

    Since it launched a little more than a year ago, I've gotten some great feedback and a modest following from various teams across the world.

    More recently, I brought on a partner and we're working together to make a V2 product.

    While I have a lot of experience on the technical side of product development, I'm still quite new at the marketing and monetization side of things. Hoping to learn more about that.

    Looking forward to getting some insight on how you solved some of the issues that I'm facing now and might be facing in the future.

    Hello Hackers,

    my name is Philipp and I am based in Germany. I have long been fascinated by the idea of indie hacking and the four hour work week. Now I want to take a deep dive and explore that space.
    I'm a programmer but I lack business skills ;)

    Hi! My name is Harrison and I've been a security and privacy consultant for a number of years working for large organisations. I see so much security for businesses but not enough for individuals and have set out to create a tool to make people more secure.

    Currently iterating a new version of my launched product https://mappd.io that shows people where their data is around the world and alerts them if they've been hacked!

    Building this alongside having a full time business, family and bills so keen to connect with other people in a similar position!

    hi everyone.

    i've mostly worked as a sysadmin in the past & have learned what i need to along the way, what i've needed when i need it (in also other areas aside *nix administration and such, originally educated/trained in biology & chemistry) - mostly python, in that regard, which i've come to like a lot.

    but my interests have slightly shifted and extended over the last 3-4 years, with the seeming paradigm shifts and changes in trends -- p2p crypto-networks of shared record-keeping organized around common protocols, as a general and really powerful concept which generalizes way beyond just financial applications or rogue money vehicles, for one. particularly attracted to the interdisciplinary nature of it all, the experimentally heuristic approaches required (of putting together unique methods and tools which borrow from diverse and disparate fields, disciplines and areas) and how that can function as a sort of revelation, the process of discovery.

    so, i've also taken up learning some javascript in the last ~year and currently focused mostly on Rust (which, unlike C/C++ back in the day, i'm growing to very much appreciate and develop a liking for). i have a few ideas/projects of mine which i very slowly crystallize, tinker with and work on, but all of those while supposedly hypothetically valuable as such are not per se associated with them being monetized or making much (if any) profit for me or anybody else (financially speaking). i dig and look for inspiration and ideas in all kinds of places, including things like history and mythology, philosophy and languages (etymology, construction of meaning, etc.) - concepts, things, constructions and assemblages which could/may be re-purposed elsewhere and elsehow from the past into the present or future. (history, as they say, doesn't repeat, but rhymes.)

    i guess overall, generally, in very brief, that's about it. :)

    glad to have come across this place.

    Hi I'm Simon! Lets say a newcomer has no money but does have 6 months to self study to become an ecommerce expert.

    Apart from work on actual projects, how would you suggest they learn?

    eg- learn SEO, ads, targeting, research analytics, logistics etc

    Appreciate any suggestions. For those who self studied, how did you do it?

    Hey @rosiesherry & IH! I just joined this week and IH has been awesome.

    I'm an engineer by training, a product manager by trade, and designer at heart. In my spare time, I'm an Indie Hacker and hack on various personal projects.

    One of my projects has become surprisingly useful in my daily life. I thought I'd open it up, build it as a SaaS app, and join IH to build it in public with the community here. So far, I've shared a v1 for the landing page and gotten ridiculously awesome feedback.

    https://www.indiehackers.com/product/minute/shipped-a-new-landing-page--M1y6aXULI0UOQwY2gBx

    Absolutely love it here, and look forward to connecting with other Indie Hackers!

    Hey Rosie!

    I'm Nick and I've been working as a laser engineer for about 5 years. I've had a huge change of heart and now I'm diving into stack development. My goal is to build a product that will allow students and young professionals to visually decipher the job market and to better understand where they want to set there sights.
    My motivation is that I was told for years before uni that we needed more engineers, then after university I was told many different things. I don't want people to be blind sighted when we are talking about life avenues and huge university costs.

    Excited to be on the ride :)

    Hi everyone!

    My name is Federico and I am Co-founder at La Hackería - a coding/product development bootcamp based in different awesome locations throughout Latin America (although we are starting in Mexico). I've been working alongside @Bearrooks for a couple months now to bring a top-quality, low-cost alternative to bootcamps in the U.S. & Canada.
    We've just started this project and are very excited about becoming Indiehackers ourselves :)

    We know Coronavirus has everyone avoiding travel, but we are looking to host our first 12-week Web Development Immersive in Mérida, Yucatán starting in September. So we're hopeful that we can get our course on the road by then!

    We want to bring top coding talent to teach the course, in a really beautiful and fun location that's perfect for decompressing on the down-time at around 1/2 the cost of U.S. alternatives. We'll be funding this course (taking students and people who purchase live-stream sessions and videos) through kickstarter, and launching our campaign in May!

    In the meantime, we'd love some feedback from the community on our website.
    Things we need feedback on: Is the concept clear? Is it compelling? What would you change design-wise about the site?
    www.lahackeria.com
    Any and all comments are appreciated!

    We're also looking for amazing folks to come and teach the fullstack web development course!

    https://angel.co/company/la-hackeria-2/jobs/744839-lead-web-development-instructor

    If living in Mérida (1 hr from caribbean beaches, cenotes, in a beautiful walkable city) sounds like something you'd like to do and you have both industry and teaching experience, please don't hesitate to reach out to us here, apply directly, or send an email to

    Hi all!!
    My name is Satya - I'm a computer researcher - use machine learning to solve problems in chatbots.

    I see a lot of problems around that I am not able to spend time to solve because of heavy duty job.

    I want to go far in creating a business and looking for diverse-minded people to work with.

    My name is Richard.

    I work with a platform that helps mobile app developers increase revenue and user LTV by reducing their exposure to app install fraud to virtually zero.

    We then recover almost all of the money for our clients.

    I am in this to help people and earn a nice living along the way.

    The challenge is that most people that I approach literally tell me that they don't care about this issue even though they know it is costing them tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars per month.

    Did I miss a meeting or wake-up in an alternate universe where this kind of money does not matter?

    I do not get it and would like to know if I am just reaching the wrong people or what.

    Thanks in advance, and please no cheap shots!

    Hi all, I'm Yuichiro (@tuttieee) from Japan, working as a software developer.

    I'm currently developing an online Markdown note-taking app as my side project.
    I began this project to solve my own problem - I usually create a lot of "todo.md" files both on my local env for my own use and on the company's Wiki to publish my plans to colleagues, but the documents get messy soon and the task info has to be synchronized with Google Calendar, GitHub, etc by hand.
    I wanted a Markdown editor in which I can write down my tasks as lists with checkboxes and the task lists are automatically synchronized with other tools... of course with good writing experience.

    While it's still under development, I started to think it will be great if I make it open to the world in addition to my own personal use and if it will become a business.

    I'm looking forward to getting some feedbacks and finding insights to grow the product on this platform :)

    Creative teams have a unique problem. After 10 years working as a freelancer and product designer in a ton of studios I noticed high employee turnover, constantly changing work and project/client cycles make it really hard to keep the consistent company culture needed for successful businesses and happy teams.

    I started to think about what successful teams had in common and tried to build a product that can help.

    Kuchahr.com gives creative teams a space for culture to thrive and Leaders the insights and tools it needs to cultivate that culture.

    My name is Matt, full- stack dev. Currently dabbling heavily in the JavaScript side of things (React, Angular, Node.js) Work full time as a dev and do side projects in the evening. Just had my first kid which is also one of my greatest inventions.

    In 2020 I'm hoping to get my side project in Medical Orders off the ground as well as build my online food ordering site for another company I order food from. All projects are mainly to learn and have fun but if they make something then that would be cool as well.

    Super keen to connect with you all.

    Keep it real.

    Hi there, I am Vincent, wannabe or growing 🌱 indie hacker.

    For the past 10 years, I have been working at various startups as an employee or freelancer. At heart, I am a JavaScript developer (Node.js/JavaScript/React). In the last 4 years, I was at https://algolia.com, I joined when we were 10 and left when they were 350+. This was really THE startup experience I was looking for.

    At Algolia I wrote most of the JavaScript opensource libraries like:

    When I moved back to my home town and started working remotely for Algolia, I started a fully remote support team spread on 4 time zones. I was the manager here.

    Last September I quit Algolia because I wanted to start my own products.

    My goal for 2020 is to release the first one: a scheduling tool for support teams and engineering teams. The goal of this tool is to provide an easy way to spread support slots to whole engineering teams. When you want all your engineers to provide support, you have to have a tool that eases the process of assigning, booking and reminding of support slots.

    At Algolia we built an internal tool to solve this issue. My product is the rewrite of this internal tool as a SAAS application.

    See ya!

It's always amazing to fully realize how much you relied on your teammates in the past. For me, that's largely marketing.

    My background is in everything from backend engineering and web development to user experience and product strategy. Currently doing iOS for the first time and loving it.

    I am a software engineer with over 10 years of experience. With the years I have seen how bad ideas with a lot of funding are alive making a decent profit, while in the other good ideas with no funding take a lot of time to take-off.

    I am here looking for Spanish community interested in partnering for www.amigoinmigrante.com, a site looking to demystify the immigration information and prevent scams.

    I wish great success to all of the members of this forum.

    Hi Folks, I'm Paul - a fullstack developer currently working on www.capable.app - a browser support tool that works out what device your customer is using and performs diagnostics before sending you a request. I'm working on adding page screenshot support at the moment to show exactly where the problem is. The whole app is bootstrapped just by me atm.

    Looking for feedback and to meeting people here, I haven't launched on PH or anything yet, so whether you guys think the product is ready for that would be useful feedback for me.

    Hi, I created getapy.com and I am in the launch phase (if it is one).
    In a nutshell, we ensure professionals have a way to connect and learn from each other, through mentorship.

    Our offering is based on 2 products,

    • Our marketplace getapy.com, enables any professional to connect in a mentoring setting. We handle everything from vetting to meetings. (payments, note-taking, next steps....). Based on your career this is why I connected with you as you would be a perfect mentor and share your expertise with others.

    • An enterprise platform getapy.com/enterprise, which enables organizations, to mix and match their employees and solve ongoing issues (onboarding, high turnover, deficient process...)
      The benefits are :

    • For employees: greater communication, better knowledge acquisition/transmission...

    • For employers: Higher productivity and retention as you are magnifying your DNA and mission.

    And many other benefits, as each time you create emulation between people there is a positive outcome. Especially within a turnkey framework like APY.

    Hit me up if you have any tech questions / want to know more / want to talk with someone who did a lot of mistakes!

    Hey Rosie! I've been an (relatively unsuccessful) indie hacker since 2006, back when the Business of Software forum was a thing. After selling a business and doing some full time employee gigs, I've decided to go back to pursuing an indie hacker project.

    Back in 2006 I built a CRM in Ruby on Rails v0.9. One of the advantages of choosing Rails was fast development, one of the downsides was that things changed rapidly, being 1x dev was hard to keep up! Yesterday I broke out the old code that's stuck on Rails v2.3 and have decided to copy over the code bit by bit to a Rails v6 project.

    Back in the day I had sold this software to one training company. I netted around $7,500 which seemed like a lot at the time. I could never effectively scale it, or decide on a target market (turns out CRM means things to sales teams, who'd have thought?). The software totally transformed the business of our first customer and enabled them to scale. I think that's a good reason to bring it back.

    This restart is a journey I've started many times, but never reached the goal. Back then I was working crazy hours and ended up burning out. Hopefully this time, I can successfully bring it back and help training companies everywhere be more awesome!

    Hi, I'm Elliot :)

    Still a student but with 2 companies, one for e-commerce, courses and side projects (such as https://le-meilleur-pronostiqueur.fr/ a bet predictor comparator) and another called Edusign (https://www.edusign.fr/), which is a startup that aims to digitize attendance sheets, in french and soon other languages.
    I'm only 21 but working hard to achieve my goals, create value, learn and enjoy myself while at it.

    My coding skills are quite poor (html, css and some js), but I always work with smart coders to help me. However, if you want to have a discussion about marketing, I'm your guy.

    I'm here because I want to share my progress on my side projects to get feedback and get better. But also to help if I can!

    My new side project is a text checker for Facebook Ads that will help marketers estimate the value of their text for better ads performance.

    Don't hesitate to connect with me if you want to talk :D

    Best,

    Hi, I recently have learned how to code html, html5, css, and css3. I'm about to start javascript but I wanted to start a few side projects first with just css, and html. I have a huge idea for a project. It's a service based app. Many already exist like it. It's just my idea has the best ideas in it. No single company has implemented all of these ideas simply because lack of user use. You see since I actually run a maid service, I know exactly what it needs to be the best flawless system. I used to run a maid service and used zenmaid. This program wasn't the greatest at first. I worked with Amar, the owner and over the course of 4 months, I helped get all the bugs out, and gave him many amazing ideas that greatly improved the system. He lunched an updated app with my new ideas. It was a high success. This is when the Zenmaid brand became as strong as it did. I saw it for what it was. With a solid brand name, Zenmaid. The ideas I gave Amor were only the beginning. I had so many more great ideas to add in, I finally stopped feeding them to him in Hope's of learning to code and make them happen for myself. I have now started coding and are ready to start my first few side projects, to get a better feel for it, and keep learning more. I am going to build an empire with this new app. I came here to team up with a partner to make this happen. I actually run a maid service currently, and know exactly what needs to be implemented into the software to make it work. I also have actually drew this out already and have it down on paper. This was before I could code, so it's not coded at all yet. Just wrote in English. I know this can be a success, I've already launched the idea to app development company, and they all wanted to start the project. I didn't think it would be build the way I wanted it unless I coded it myself with an experienced partner

    Hi everybody! My name is Othmane, i am a fullstack developer for about 7 months now.
    With my friend, we are interested in Calligraphy so we came up with the idea of turning conversations on WhatsApp, iMessage etc... to real letters you can send through the post.
    You send us a screenshot of the conversation, and we take care of the rest. We think it could be a very thoughtful gift you can give to someone you had a beautiful conversation with. I am still new to side projects, but it's so addictive once you start! And that's why i joined this community, so i can learn and maybe help others in the future !

    I don't know how to start but I have deep interest in learning things from different streams and I wish to share that zeal for knowledge through my initiative.

    Hi Rosie. I'm a 41-year-old from the UK. I started programming almost 4 years ago with the intention of getting good enough to create my own ideas.

    Hey, everyone! I'm Rita.

    Growing up with a Japanese mom and an African-American dad, to say taking care of my hair was hard would be an understatement! I spent most of my time experimenting and trying new products in order to nourish and manage my hair. And I realized having curly hair is expensive, overwhelming, and down-right complicated.

    So like any good Millennial, I hacked my hair! Using my computer science background, I spent countless hours scraping data from all the big beauty stores to determine what makes a great hair product. After analyzing one million reviews (yes, one million!), I noticed that people with the same curl type have different experiences with the same product. Mind blown! It turns out, rather than curl type, the porosity and density of someone’s hair is a better indicator of whether a product will work for them.

    That’s why I created Full Reign. I wanted to make the products I couldn’t find: high-quality, sleek and stylish and great for your curls, your wallet and the planet.

    I'd love to hear your feedback and reactions.

    Hello everyone, my name is Bob and I am what I guess you would call and aspiring full stack developer in transition. I got my start with C#/.NET (I hate to admit WinForms) and MySQL.
    Now, after a deep internal struggle, my stack is
    ME(R/V)N with a dual-puropse M, (MySQL and MongoDB). I'm on the fence between React and Vue at the moment and it's so incredibly frustrating. But I know for sure that I love Node and Express. .NET and C# Will always hold a special place in my heart and I especially love database development and SQL.

    I owned a collection agency for the past decade and I sold it this past November to pursue automation full-time. I'm working on building my new company and I'm working with my brother on building his company. I live in an area that is .NET heavy And it makes it very hard to network with modern JS framework developers. I've been searching for a larger sense of community and I'm hoping this could be it.

    Hi @rosiesherry and all,

    My name is Wojtek, I am a co-founder at RocketLink.io. This is the second SaaS that I've built while being a surgeon. After a successful launch and growing it to a decent level I left my job as a doctor and focused on RocketLink.

    Right now we are hiring and scaling our project.

    I am looking forward to engaging with the IH community, sharing my experience and learning from others.

    I love spending time with my wife, son, cat, and a dog. My hobbies are aviation, coding (PHP, C, C#), IoT, 3D printing, and much more ;-).

    Great to be here!

    Hi Rosie, I am a developer, iOS for 6 years, full-stack for 1 year, I tried a couple of different projects, but none of them worked, just hitting the wall again and again. However, this doesn't stop me from trying.
    I am now working on a VPN product, I am lost on my way to be profitable.
    Also, I am building an App that can record phone calls.
    Maybe I should simplify side projects and make my priority first.

    Hi Everyone,
    I am Jesse Nord and can say this entrepreneurship path is both fun but scary. After working with large enterprises and small businesses on security and compliance, I've decided to take that experience and start helping small to medium sized businesses. Most entrepreneurs know their space as far as product or their service is concerned. The bigger issue is knowing how to safely grow into markets (EU, California, etc.) while complying with regulations. This is my area of expertise and I'd like to help those who can't afford to pay the large consulting company fees.

    My thought is to take this knowledge and create courses with templates and forms with walk-throughs.

    Looking forward to sharing this journey with all of you.

    Hi there, my name is Fabio, originally from Brazil but in Denmark. And a parent :)

    I've worked for many years in product management, had a bunch of side projects/products but never got too serious or the discipline to turn them into actual businesses.

    I joined here to get a boost from the community, get my sh** together and learn from others how they do and keep up many of the amazing products I see here and keep hearing about in many other places.

    I'd love to help people in the beginning, learn a bit of areas I'm weak at and then venture out on my own.

    Thanks!
