Welcome, introduce yourself! (Week of May 10th)

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 everyone, I'm Hannah and last week I launched the first version of my website findyourflows.com - it's basically one big searchable timetable of the best Yoga classes happening online. So you can think of it as high quality Yoga, on demand. If you have ever used MINDBODY, you can think of it like that but with teachers at the centre, instead of studios. And with better search. I am looking into integrating booking and payment as well as building an app.

    I'm a Yoga teacher and long time student so the classes have been selected with my knowledge of the best teachers in London and beyond.

    Please check it out findyourflows.com and follow the Instagram @findyourflows

    Thanks!

      This is so handy! Thanks for putting together 🙂

      1. 1

        Thanks Christina! Are you using it? I would love to hear any more feedback.

    3. 1

      really cool, Hannah! Congrats!

      1. 1

        Thank you!

    4. 1

      Hi Hannah, great idea! I’m also working in the fitness & health category and am already running an App. Let me know once if I can help you with starting yours.

      1. 1

        Thank you! Sounds cool, I will head to your profile now to see...

    5. 1

      I love how simple and effective your website is.

      1. 1

        Thank you so much!

    6. 1

      Very smart idea!

    Hey,
    I'm Colin Campbell, CS student and aspiring entrepreneur. I'm into SaaS because of the freedom it gives you to offer value that's beautiful in many ways while you earn and grow. I've been building an app and just today I created a beta landing page to test the waters... boy is that a ride.

    1. 1

      Welcome to the community @colinbro! Post the link to the landing page!

      1. 1

        Here's the link https://artifactspro-join-beta.herokuapp.com/ . I've tried Whatsapp and Instagram as channels to gain traction for some validation. lol got only 7 people so far out of the 60+ people who I interacted with ( directly & indirectly ).

        I'm currently looking for other channels that cost little to nothing to gain to more traction. What's left for me to used is LinkedIn.

        1. 1

          I'm curious to know what problem you're solving and whom you're solving it for.

          1. 1

            Issue of managing changes in your working documents, for instance you might have a document to hand over to the boss to review, he requested changes but you don't want to override that same document so you create another version. I'm targeting mostly officers within an organization or consultants.

            1. 1

              Got it. So this is like a Google Docs / Microsoft Word competitor?

              1. 1

                Yes, but the main idea is a framework is provided to enable version of docs. This idea might not be perfect, but I might as well give it shot.

                1. 1

                  Yea man, go for it. Since those big players are so well established, my advice would be to laser-focus on exactly who your target market is. I mean like obsessive focused on one specific niche. By doing so you can address their exact workflow pain points and build the product for them in a way that Google Docs never could (because Google Docs has to focus on mass appeal).

                  1. 1

                    Noted, I've had small panic attacks realizing that people might as well say, "Well why can't I just use Google Docs ? I'll just use folders", or something like that, just to have my initial efforts in vain. Also thanks.

                    1. 1

                      I think the newer versions of office 365 offer integrated version control for all documents. Google docs also offers a similar feature with the revision control.

                      I think you really have to find a problem here that you are solving for people. I think you need to go out and talk to people before building further (just my advice).

    Hi, I’m Lennart (30, 🇩🇪) and started working full time on joinweburn.com this March. WeBurn is a 7-minute fitness App targeted at women and “quite” successful in the App Store. I’m originally a Product Guy, learned Product Design 3 years ago and App Development 1 1/2 years ago. Now I’m doing everything on my own 🙌

    My current goal is to get to > 5.000 € MRR.

    I’m here to get inspired but also support others. Let’s just make this solopreneurial adventure less lonely together 😋

    1. 1

      Hey, I'm also from Germany (Berlin). Your app looks well made. How are you creating the content for it?

      1. 1

        I’m creating it on my own. Two iPhones for recording and a friend of mine doing the exercises. Cool to find other people from Germany here 😊

    2. 1

      Hi Lenart, interesting application. Shoot me an email [email protected] would like to have a chat

    Hi Indie Hackers, Finn here from Singapore!

    We just launched a crypto quant trading bot app (https://www.cryptohero.ai/) that is easy to use and gives them access to trading strategies and backtesting tools. Each CryptoHero bot can be set up in just under a minute. The bots will use pre-set popular technical indicators, currently we support a few basic technical indicators: EMA, RSI, Stoch RSI and Bollinger Bands.

    Really enjoyed the content and community here, wished I had discovered this community while we were building the app!

    Hey guys,

    Gabriel here! Software engineer, biohacker and former actor :)

    I'm just starting to build an audience by blogging and podcasting as well as live coding on Twitch (starting tomorrow).
    My podcast Addicted To Learning is launching Mai 25.

    Also, I'm being mentored and coached by the wonderful @arvidkahl who has been instrumental in both compassionately guiding me as well as calling me out on my shit!

    Looking forward to helping one another out on here!

    Y'all can check me out at https://gabrielhorvat.net/

    1. 1

      Nice it would be a privilege to have you as a guest on our podcast!

      Interested?

    2. 1

      Hey Gabriel! I think it's awesome that you have a mentor/coach- any advice on finding one? Can you share at all about how formal this relationship is and what it involves? Thanks!

      • Mark
      1. 3

        Hey Mark! Yeah, of course, happy to share :)
        As Rosie said, I connected with @arvidkahl on Mentorcruise.
        It's important to know though, that I had been following him for months already prior to connecting and as such knew his entire backstory.

        Incidentally, I'd actually been about to cold email him with bootstrapping-related questions when I came across Mentorcruise here on IH :D .

        Our mentor/mentee relationship consists of a weekly hour-long zoom session + intermittent email access when needed.
        I'd also say that our relationship is pretty informal.
        I usually update Arvid about my progress (have weekly deliverables that I set myself proactively) + challenges/problems/obstacles I'm dealing with and he somehow always has the right answers :D.
        This can involve anything from which tech to use...
        (answer: the one you know best - DUH!)
        ...To how to build an audience and find your niche (much more complicated answer: check out his blog & upcoming book for ideas).

        Hope this helps Mark. If you have more questions, send them my way anytime :)

        -Gabe

        1. 1

          Very cool, thanks a lot Gabe. I've never had a mentor before, and have always wondered what the specifics are with a mentor relationship!

      2. 3

        It's worth checking out MentorCruise for mentors. I believe Arvid is a mentor there.

        1. 1

          Awesome, thanks Rosie!

  6. 3

    Hi everyone

    After months in coding isolation, I am finally connecting. I am currently bootstrapping 2 start ups that I am very passionate about.

    Hey guys,
    I'm Robin from Cape Town, South Africa. I started as a software developer in 1999 and been involved in the development space ever since. The last 10 years I've moved into the management track i.e. managing teams (dev's/qa's) and software projects.

    One of the common themes that keeps cropping up in my space up, is the lack of developers available to work on projects. As with most companies, the list of projects/ideas outweighs the number of people to implement them. As part of my role, I input into the prioritization of projects. I often see great idea's put on the back-burner to focus on higher ROI projects. Most these projects never see the light of day.

    I'm interested in how I can empower/grow 'power' users to responsibly build their own solutions using a combination of techniques and tools. Most of the use cases I have are not customer facing, they are more back-office optimizations.

    Some of the topics I'm looking at exploring are:

    • No code or Low Code platforms
    • Open Source / SaaS tools eg. Canva, Slack etc.
    • Most companies, that are security concious, would have issues with storing company/customer data outside of their network. So the SaaS services would be a no go. To that end, for people that are invested in Microsoft, look at utilizing the suite to it's full potential.
    • On a more technical side, look into leveraging internal API's so that they can be utilized effectively inside companies.
    • I'm also intrigued by Flutter, specifically a design to code platform like https://supernova.io/

    There are many serious topic that I've glossed over like security, 'shadow IT', data compliance, managment of these tools/services etc. but I feel that tools can add so much value, and by empowering people to build their own solutions it will improve their quality of life.
    Most of what I've written is 'corporate' focused but there is potential overlap for smaller businesses.

    I plan to create YouTube videos and create blog / linkedin posts.
    I don't have any plans to monitize, but I do feel I want to share what knowledge I have.

    I plan to contribute my learnings on this and other things I've stumbled upon on, to this community.

    1. 1

      Hi Robin, welcome. I am also from South Africa, just another part of world Johannesburg.

      1. 1

        Thanks @papertrail, hope all is good on your side.

    Hi there Rosie... My name is Elle, currently unemployed, but previously had my own line of jewelry. Did extremely well. (kept my day job for insurance purposes). That was 6 years ago. Now...thinking of doing Tshirts. I'm pretty creative with ideas. Have found that working for yourself if very rewarding. Not sure to outsource with vendors or do it on my own.

  9. 2

    Hi fellow indie hackers :)

    Just taking a second to introduce myself. I'm a software engineer from southern California. My goal is to increase my income to 10k a month so that I can save for retirement and travel more.

    See you around the community!

  10. 2

    👋 Hey, I'm Edgar. A self-taught JS engineer working in the iGaming industry for almost 5 years. I'm going to publicly build a side project with a stack I've never used before, and challenge myself to grow it into a sustainable business, documenting the journey along the way.

    👀 What project? Bookmark manager. A fancy one sort of.
    🛠 What stack? Stay tuned, but those would be things I've never worked with before: Svelte, AWS...

    Follow the journey: twitter makerlog

    🕵️‍♂️Do you use a bookmark manager? Chrome's built-in?
    🧐What features do you miss there?

    Hello everyone, Elias here, an aspiring entrepreneur from Argentina.

    Still in an early/exploratory phase, I'm trying a bunch of different things until I find something that truly convinces me.

    My main interests are scalable compute for data science and making the gig-economy a fairer place, with better growth and learning opportunities.
    Not sure how/if these interests connect...

    Anyway, very excited to join this community!

  12. 2

    Hello
    I am excited to join the community. Hope everyone is safe out there. I am Sujan and i have just completed CA from ICAI. I came to know from my brother about this platform. I have always been interested in becoming an entrepreneur and i am here to learn from the experts and experienced one.

    Hey! Glad to be on here. I founded RentRound.com. We help landlords save money by letting them compare agent fees & ratings in their area. I'n not a techy as such, but have a good deal of experience in business. Feel free to give me a shout and ask a question.

    1. 2

      Great idea! I happen to be a landlord (currently handle everything on my own), but eventually I want to add to my portfolio so hiring an agent will be a must. As someone who comes from finance and would like to get into web development for business reasons, can you please advise if you outsourced a web developer to create your site or if you took the time to build it yourself?

      1. 1

        Hi, Thanks for the feedback! I used an offshore dev team to do the work. I initially started doing some work myself but was causing more damage than it was worth!

    Hi everyone.
    My name is George. I am 33.
    For the past 10 years I am working in game development. Mobile game development. I was creating free 2 play mobile games on iOS and Android on a position of producer/project manager/creative director. My biggest hit game is World of Tanks Blitz.
    I am working in a big corporation, and starting feeling myself strange in past couple of months. There a lot of thoughts in my head about quitting my current position and starting my own studio to give out something fresh. To put all my experience in it.
    Somehow I found myself here on indie hackers.
    Maybe I will find someone here with the same thoughts.

    1. 1

      Hello George. World of Tanks Blitz is a great game! I'm not a veteran of the gaming industry but worked ar Riot Games for a little more than a year, handling Tech Ops for Latin America. I'm American but based out of Spain, also working for a Corporate and starting something of my own. Happy to chat anytime!

    Hey everyone,

    I recently launched a new site to connect TECH STARTUPS to EXPERIENCED ADVISORS. Think Techstars & YC Alumni companies to VCs;

    https://www.biznest.io/

    As the platform is (very) early stages, all advisors are currently offering to undertake FREE calls for early adopters.
    The advisors experience ranges from AI, to Fin tech, to Robotics, and everything in between!
    If you'd like to sign up it's quick and free on the website. You can also get in touch and ask me any questions; [email protected]

    Cheeeers :)

      Hi Mark,
      I like your super simple and transparent website and solution.
      What state should the start-up have reached before it applies to your platform?

      I'm looking for an easy to build marketplace solution. Do you have recommendations for providers. I checked out bubble.io and Sharetribe but the German data/ privacy policy requires data storage in Germany for my solution. Looking forward to hearing from you.
      Best Susanne

      1. 1

        Hi Susanne,

        Thanks! The startup can be at any stage! You're welcome to sign up - where are you based, Germany? It would be good to connect and find out your thoughts on the the concept.

        With regards to the marketplace no-code solution, I'm not sure to be honest. My website is in Webflow and I have been looking at plugins and integrations for this. I can let you know as things progress... :)

    Hi everyone! I'm Packy, I run a community in NYC called Not Boring Club, and write a newsletter called Not Boring (https://notboring.substack.com/) which combines business strategy and trends with pop culture to make it educational and entertaining.

    I just crossed 1,000 subscribers, and my goal this year is to get to 10k and figure out the best way to monetize it. I'd love to trade tips and tricks.

    Hi everyone, I'm Daniel.

    Wow, it's really wonderful to see so many people from around the world starting here and interacting with each other in just the last few days! Gives me hope and excitement about the community here.

    My co-founder Daniel and I* are building an automation tool for non-technical people. It's (hopefully) easy, quick, and cheap enough that anyone can automate their tedious, repetitive tasks. We're torn between the names Otto and Littlefish.

    We're in the very early days, so I don't have a website to share just yet. I am looking for folks who'd be willing to share their real-life use cases for us to build towards. If you're interested, I'd love to do a quick 10 minute phone call and hear about your needs.

    Cheers, everyone. Again, really excited to join this community.

    Daniel

    *Yep, both Daniels. If anyone else is also in the same-name co-founder boat, I'd love to connect. We're still figuring out who gets the [email protected] email address ;P.

  24. 2

    Heya, we are Bas and Lars from Alkmaar, The Netherlands. Together we are building Headsup: SaaS for functional testing of web applications.

    Functional testing and automation should not be restricted to those who know how to code. We offer early access and welcome any and all feedback.

    Check us out at https://headsup.site/ and say hi on Twitter: https://twitter.com/HeadsupOrg

    1. 1

      Hi, like the solution. how can headsup be connected to a website for testing (e.g. plugin/ app / API)?

    Hello!
    I'm Alessio. Since 2012 I'm working as freelance astronomy educator mainly in schools. My lessons are always appreciated by pupils and their teachers.
    COVID had totally stopped my activity so I started to dive into a project I had in my mind for years:

    a web app to learn astronomy. In particular devoted to naked-eye and everyday astronomy.

    Where is my niche:

    • mobile planetariums (eg: Google Sky Maps) are spectacular tools BUT their teaching capabilities are very low. They tell you what are you looking at but hardly you understand "the big picture".
    • 3D simulators give you complex animations BUT it's hard to connect what you see with everyday sky.
    • documentaries, youtube, socials are full of wonderful pictures and fascinating explanations about astronomy facts BUT astronomy isn't just a basket of facts. It's a science based on observation, hypothesis and tests.
    • school goes from fact memorization (eg: mass of Jupiter, moon's distance, ..) to beautiful images to complex formulas but very few about really understand what's happening above our head every day.

    cosmopad.org is your personal astronomy expert. It guides you through simple animations to effective stargazing.

    These are simulations of real observations you can do from your backyard and they train you to be prepared when you'll look at the sky for real.
    They are organized in tiny thematic units.

    The system suggest you automatically your observations based on your experience on thematic units, your location, and previous activity.

    I want also to build a community to make possible simultaneous observations connecting users having similar experience or particular locations (eg: same longitude, latitude,..).

    This allows to organize guided worldwide experiments such as measuring Earth's circumference and so on...

    At the moment cosmopad.org is a MVP landing page using landen.co
    I'm building a first essential prototype on bubble.io

    I hope to give my contribute to this wonderful place named indiehackers ;)

    1. 2

      Heya, landing page looks good and I love the idea. Could you give me an example of the kind of themes that you're building your lessons around?

      1. 2

        Some examples:

        • Track the Moon. Observe Moon's position day by day at the same time.
        • Predict eclipses. Find a pattern observing previous eclipses dates.
        • Stellar calendar. Measure the passing of months tracking the stars.
        • Heliocentric. Observe planet's motion to say that Earth is not the center of the universe.

        And so on..
        For each topic you'll be trained with simulations to repeat it for real, naked eye from you backyard.

        1. 1

          That's awesome. I've registered my address.

  26. 2

    Hey everyone! Hope you are all safe during this time. Let me start off by saying I'm Antony, from Lebanon. I'm well educated in finance and investment fields. I'm aspired towards starting an online business that revolves around my passion that typically includes achieving financial freedom through investment opportunities.

    The reason for that is simply attacking the investment delusion society has placed upon us by driving us to believe that the only way to financial success is through "playing it safe". and to avoid investments because it should be handled by "experts" due to the fact that it is just too complex for the average joe to implement.

    I'm truly against that. So i'm here documenting my journey by doing that exact topics above. Investing. I currently starting a blog covering a few topics but hope to excel even more later on. I also hope to build a sustainable audience by the end of 2020.

    This is a journey for us all & I wish everyone goodluck on theirs!

    1. 1

      I'm working an investing game idea since after years of research on how to invest I think there's a big knowledge gap in the investment industry and laypeople. Love to chat.

      1. 1

        Their truly is. That's what makes it so sad. People actually believe that you have to be born with some gift in order to succeed in investing. Such a delusion... And that's great! Would be delighted to chat more. Platform?

        1. 1

          Let's use google hangouts (507) 722-2737 is my number.

          1. 1

            Just found out that hangouts is blocked here. If you have discord, you can add me at TonyMacaroni#5583

            1. 1

              Sent friend request.

    2. 1

      Investing is one of those areas I've not ventured into because I think the way you described above.

      I haven't educated myself really (too busy building products), but know I want to learn more about investing. Curious to see what you end up doing.

      1. 2

        We've all been there. It's just a matter of education. It's crazy how we've been told that it's so hard to get into and how we are required to have some kind of born "gift" in order to succeed in it. Sigh

        Hope to see you around, might be able to help out with some direction. Goodluck with the build!

        1. 1

          It's always something I've wanted to explore, and I just read "The Long and the Short of it" by John Kay, my first step into taking control of investing. Haven't put it into practice yet!

          1. 2

            Sweet! Baby steps is the best method. Almost 90% of people who take action tend to jump into investing really quick usually quit a few trades in or at the time the account has been blown away. Glad you're taking it slow! It's all about preparation, education and practice! If you need any tips/guides or even a sense of direction of were to start, let me know. Will gladly help!

    Hey everyone,

    I'm Oğuzhan, co-founder of dytto.co

    Dytto is a web app to send offers/quotes to clients easily. I'm handling the business side of Dytto and I'm super passionate about what I'm doing. So excited to be in this community. I'm looking forward to learning from Indie Hackers and share my entrepreneurship experience with everyone.

    My current goal is, well, getting first paid customer on Dytto and than see that growth curve going up all the way. I'm so lucky to connect with other people who have a similar journey too.

    1. 1

      I was looking for something like this for so long back in my early freelancing days. Definitely could have used it then.

      A few years ago I found and.co and it was everything I needed and more. But your solution seems simple and elegant. Well done!

      1. 2

        Hey Dustin, thank you for your thoughts!

    Hello everyone! It's Gokay (23 🇹🇷 ). I'm a software engineer with a full-time job. I like to create my stuff, hate vendor lock-ins and love open source.

    Before getting my job, I tried to launch a startup with my friends, it didn't work out as we were all developers and do not know any marketers. Then we got an invitation to a group that was trying to launch their startup. They were all marketers and in need of developers. We accepted the invitation but when we were half on the road, some disagreements occurred and we split our ways.

    Now my goal here is to find a marketer I can partner with to build some kick-ass products!
    Thanks 😊

    I'm Moad, management information systems student, and currently i'm working on an arabic coupons/deals website that targets the MENA (Middle East & North Africa) region , you can check it here : https://couponlak.com/
    I'm working on it day by day, and i hope to reach 50 000 visitors/month by the end of 2020.
    Otherwise, I'm a digital marketer, i've worked on several domains in the digital marketing field (Dropshipping, ecommerce, adsense, etc ..) But I don't want to follow the HIT and RUN method anymore, that's why I wanna build a real web project that is sustainable.
    Moreover, I'm really happy to be a part of this inspirational community ! 🤗

    I am working in a big corporation, and starting feeling myself strange in past couple of months. There a lot of thoughts in my head about quitting my current position and starting my own company to give out something fresh. To put all my experience in it.
    Somehow I found myself here on indie hackers.
    Maybe I will find someone here with the same thoughts.
    Just want to know am I risking it or do I have to continue what am doing.

    Hello everyone 🖐, it's Loukas (38, GR).

    I used to work for a big private bank and I didn't enjoy it at all. It has been almost 10 years of "lost" precious time that I should have spent elsewhere. I was looking for a way out and I decided to grab the opportunity to leave that place when they announced a small compensation for people who would quit. My academic background is in finance and banking and while I don't utterly regret it, if I went back I would have chosen another field. It's almost 20 months since I left and I have been learning web development since, leaning towards a full stack path. My goal is to enter the world of startup founders sooner or later, however, I understand that at 38 years of age and with no connections, excess capital, or whatsoever, this might be a utopia.

    While I was learning the usual stuff, HTML, CSS, JS, PHP, I built a couple of websites, nothing fancy, in order to see my newly acquired skills in action. I witnessed how I evolved each day/week/month and how the last website I made (and current project) can actually bring in some revenue in the future. It is a web directory of online stores that sell medical cannabis products. By building almost everything myself, I kept the cost of development and maintenance at a bare minimum. I am very proud of what I have accomplished, even though it seems pretty basic to the untrained eye. I am not a medical cannabis consumer myself, but I figured that instead of browsing search engine pages, a (classic) directory would add some value to consumers. Now that the website is finished I am putting 2 hours daily for maintenance and database expansion (add stores, seek affiliates, post on twitter/FB, etc.).

    I am trying to strike a balance between learning to code, actually coding, and coming up with ideas. And all that while balancing my personal life too. Things would be much easier if I was single, I would pretty much be 24/7 at my computer which is clearly unhealthy, so I need to strike another balance, this time between my "work" and personal life so that everyone is relatively happy. It turns out that life is a game of balance.

    Time to move on to the next project, learn some more, and seek inspiration from all of you 🤗. Thank you in advance!

    Hey peeps! I'm Chris, a filmmaker based in Bucharest, I am trying to build 2 online businesses and I got some struggles, so I hope some of you guys would be able to give me some advice as my brain got stuck.

    My challenge now is to get financially sustainable (min. 500 euros/ month) and to do what I always enjoyed doing, which is filmmaking. It seems that all the awards I got are not really helping me to get over the current financial situation, but I'll get to that later. Let me tell you about the businesses I'l love to grow.

    1st business. This is my Youtube Channel Framing Reality (www.youtube.com/framingreality) where I post videos from my travel, challenges, and some video work that I do (4k presentations and so on). I feel I can narrow down the topics, so I get the content more niched. However, I am doing this for the last 3 years and it seems to work really hard. Any advice about how to grow faster? How to get some collaborations?

    2nd business is with my partner. We started a yoga business (YouTube: I Speak Yoga / www.ispeakyoga.com - the website is not ready yet) and we'd also love to grow it faster than I did with Framing Reality, but our challenge here is that this niche is overcrowded and we don't exactly know how to break the norms. Any tips, advice in regards to this?

    All in all, it's been a tough year after COVID-19 when all my freelancing projects got canceled and now we're struggling to pay our bills as we're both freelancers. I am on the verge of depression but despite my mental state I would really love to start building an income from YouTube content.

    Any advice/ help is welcome!

    Thank you,
    Chris

    Hey everyone! 👋 I'm Eric, founder of zform.co. We've built a web app that makes the process of filling out PDFs 10x faster.

    Many of you in the IH community know firsthand how painful it is to fill out PDF documents - it's time consuming, prone to error, and nearly impossible to do on mobile. zform solves this problem by turning any user-submitted PDF into a mobile-friendly web form. The form can be completed in seconds from any web browser, with no pinching or dragging required. With zform you can generate documents in a fraction of the time it would take using legacy software tools like Adobe Acrobat.

    We just launched zform last month and we're incredibly excited to share it here with the IH community. While we're in beta the service is completely free to use and we'll be granting signups on a rolling basis. Please check it out and let us know what you think! 🚀

    Hey,
    I'm Urmil Bhatt. I am working as a Frontend Engineer for a couple of years now. Although I have been in this industry for last two years now I have never thought or made any efforts of creating a side project of my own. Maybe I lacked some imagination or I was upright lazy. But I am here to get inspired by all creators out here. Until I found this website. This is a great platform. I will try to practice to think in a creative manner and take inspiration from you all. I have immense respect for all you out there who have taken a leap faith and are hustling towards creativity and financial independence.

    Thank you for inspiring all of us out here. Keep up the good work. Good luck. 👍

    Hi, Brent here and I’ve been fiddling on a side project for the last year. This next week I begin pitching and testing my product with customers. I’m quite nervous and excited.

    I’ve been hesitant to start getting customers until I have the time to truly focus, in case it works. (I think it is going to work, albeit I’m sure I’ll have to learn lessons). My normal job is pretty demanding so I needed to make sure I had time to follow through if they purchase. Well now I have the time! I made the time. Just started saying no to other gigs that pay me when I work (hourly) to give it a go at my business that can hopefully scale someday. Wish me luck.

    Hello everyone, name is Luis, I'm American, currently living in Spain. I started a SaaS company in my early twenties which I sold. After that, I went to the dark side and have worked for 10 years in the strange chambers of corporate America (and now Corporate Europe) for the likes of Google, Riot Games, and McKinsey. Now I'm going back in the game and hope to be fully independent in a year's time.

    I have one concrete software that I'm working on and hope to share more about it, to get your guys opinion, in a short while.

    Happy to be here, this is a great community.

    Heya, I'm Matt and I love working on side-projects with Bubble. I'm currently working on a client portal for web designers.

    I've been web designing for 10 years and haven't found a one-stop-shop to onboard my clients into that handles tasks, invoices and file sharing. I know there are plenty of fantastic project management tools available but most are built for large teams or you find you still have to ask your clients to sign up for additional services.

    Hey guys, I am Omar a mechanical engineering student who had recently fell in love with coding. I am currently learning python and trading. I have always loved statistics in finance and been interested in coding and my goal is to put those two things together somehow. I have been investing my side money for a few years now which has been easy as a passive investor (while having time as a student to do research). I want to create platforms that actually help traders with the technical analysis without ripping them off.

    My final goal is to eventually write an algorithm to help me. I know it won't be easy and this is a few years project but it is something I am passionate about. Curious to know what you guys thing.

    I'm Rod and I'm five months into building a blog on mushrooms called theshroomclassroom.com - this website is a place where advances in the fields of psychedelics, biomaterials, and medicinal mushrooms are discussed on an ongoing basis. Essentially the goal is to breakdown barriers for the stereotypes held against mushrooms start the cultural conversations at large.

    I currently work in biotechnology at a large corporate company and have a background in molecular biology. I'm open to some suggestions for UI on the website, building a solid email list, as well as potential ideas for monetization of a blog.

    Hi everyone, I’m Mikell and I’m from Trinidad and Tobago. Currently I’m working on launching a ESP-email marketing platform within the next three weeks.

    I recently finished building a two sided marketplace but due to the unexpected appearance of COVID19. I had to just dial back and focus on trying to onboard the supply side of users by searching on IG then DM potential users.
    I started the ESP as a side project but due the corona I’m very dedicated to get it up and running as a Saas because to be honest I need to start making some extra income. It’s basically launch ready but I don’t have a landing page (details, features, about, pricing) also I havent figured out a name as yet lol 😂 . I saw landen, versoly and unicorn being talked about a lot on indie hacker so I will try and use one of those.

    Found out about indie hacker about 2 weeks ago and I’m glad I stumbled across it because I been looking at the community and how you guys help one another and share information is truly great.

    Love to see the underdog shine.

    Hey everyone!
    My name is Wes, I am here for some ideas on what I could do. I am motivated to do something to get out of a 9-5 accounting job so I can be home with my wife and one year old son. Most ideas I have currently are subscription boxes or simple app ideas and I am not sure where to start on a subscription business. If anyone has any tips, that would be fantastic. Also, who do you guys use/trust for app development. I'm excited to be here so I can help people eventually too and pass it on. Look forward to talking with you all.
    Wes

    1. 1

      Hi, Wes. I used to be in the same position as you (finance job, even worst it was 24h/7days a week instead of 9-5 😅). The first step is the hardest. I'd tell you to start by making something you want. Among those ideas you have, is there one that you would love to try yourself? For me, I had ~20 ideas listed, but this one kept coming up to my mind. I wanted to see a place where learning and teaching are easy and smooth, no paywalls, no enrollment, no boring mandated curriculum, nothing like the education I had experienced.

  75. 1

    Hey, everyone, I'm new here but old in the marketing business. I hope I can contribute and pass on my knowledge whenever I can. I mostly do Youtube videos on my channel for SaaS companies. This way it's easier to pass on the info. You can find me a Youtube by searching SaaS Master. Not sure if links are allowed here so I'll avoid putting unless asked for.

    Hey everyone, I am Nishant - founder of BlueWander (https://www.bluewander.life), a travel marketplace (and platform) for direct access to locally sourced and planned experiences. We launched our beta last year and started picking up some good traction pre-COVID.

    But things have taken a serious downturn in the last couple months and generally the outlook for travel industry is not very positive at the moment. Things are not going to be same so we are planning to do a pivot.

    I am also exploring another idea around the gig economy that I would love to share about (and get some feedback on) from the community here. Additionally, the reason I joined Indie Hackers is because I want to partner with someone as a side hustle while I figure the other stuff out.

    Looking forward to contributing to the community and connecting with y'all soon!

    Hey all - found this on tiktok.... ha... my name is Ian and I have been advertising for 15 y ears online. I started a community and it is a new venture for me to get started in. ADvengersOnline.com... it is a way for me to help but not be labeled as a guru. I know I am a better person on giving advice rather than teaching a noob as I have no patience. I would rather help someone that has already helped themselves but still need advice in form of experiences and that is why I created ADvengers.

    Hi all, I'm Mark. I'm a music producer, developer, and now entrepreneur, I guess!

    I launched https://timestamps.fm in March and have been working on growing it. It's a productivity tool for DJs that auto-generates a timestamped tracklist for a DJ mix. Making a timestamped tracklist manually is tedious, so this saves DJs time and sanity. Feel free to ask how it works if you're curious :)

    Right now it's a free utility site- no login, unlimited usage. The main area I need help is with strategy for converting this to a revenue-generating product! I have ~5 weekly users, and have been focused on getting more, but I have no long term plan and would like to develop one!

    Would love to connect with other indie hackers in the early stages of building an ultra-niche product :) Cheers!

    Hi Everyone. Isaic here from Minnesota. Always been interested in work that others are doing and have an entrepreneurial spirit that I need to push toward something real. Recently interested in the whole No Code movement. So many tools and options. I am not a developer and don't think that would be the right spot for me, but see the opportunity No Code can bring to everyone & their projects. Have a lot of ideas and need to nail them down.

    Currently playing around with No Code options to create sports games/pools around NFL, NBA. I think there is a lot of opportunity around gamifying the sports space yet, especially around gambling.

    Best wishes to everyone out here!

    Hello everyone, My name is Cris. I’m 23, every job I have worked has went to crap soon after I started, I feel like a genuine piece of shit because of this. I’m hoping this website will help me develop ways to earn a steady income. Even just a living wage would be nice.

    Hey!

    Im a developer/growth hacker that built a ton of products in the past. Winner of multiple hackathons, writer of some viral tools...I had one big sale but then spent it all on a failed idea. I worked a job for a few years now with covid and the possibility of losing my job I'm going to try to go back at it. My goal is 5 new products a week, then a week of hacking the SHIT out of growth for each one and seeing if any have legs.

    First idea - Overseer - a app that pays you to have someone remotely watch your screen to ensure you do work; $2 per 15 minutes. Imagine if you had someone watching your screen telling you to work.

    Second idea - 99Resumes - a site that crowdsources your resume for jobs

    I have a bunch of others - all Im looking for is one with legs. Excited to join the community

    Hello I'm Will. I'm a product manager and former developer. I've always been building stuff and have had various small successes over the years. My latest projects are:

    okrdash.com - align your team around the most important outcomes. A tool for recording and tracking Objectives and Key Results.

    kanosurveys.com - discover what your users really want. A user research tool for running and analysing Kano Model questionnaires.

    Would love feedback on both of these things. I've had a few sign-ups but no real engagement yet so keen to find out why. Thanks!

    Hi, I'm Andy a freelance software engineer/web designer. Started freelancing/contracting last year and recently had sometime due to COVID to start a side project at https://naptime.app.
    Essentially it will be a service which controls your notifications from your calendar, rather than having notifications drive your schedule. The idea was born out of myself going down to 4 days a week and not wanting to be actively pinged by Slack on my phone. However Slack doesn't have the controls to set do not disturb every Thursday. Hence the idea was born :)

    I am also happy available for other technical projects. Find me at https://softwarecrafts.uk

    Hi everyone, my name is Jonathan. My friends and I just launched our RaaS (Reforestation as a Service) solution on https://DigitalHumani.com

    We provide simple and easy to use Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to help connect websites and mobile applications to trusted reforestation organizations to have trees planted.

    Our MVP is live since January 2020, and our API was used to have 4300 trees so far!

    The whole solution runs on AWS, and we can provide this service for free since we use the AWS Free-tier. The only things to pay are the trees, 1$ each, directly to one of our 3 renowned reforestation partners.

    Juste learned about IndieHackers.com this week, and will look for tips to help get new users. To help fight climate change, the world could really use a few more trees right now. :-)

    Oh, and for those of you who are developing an App or a Website, please contact us to try the API! We made it VERY easy to use by just having to call an API and we have a Test environment ready for you to use.

    Thanks!

    I live in Dallas, TX and I help people / companies automate the mundane on Windows computers. I mostly teach people how to use AutoHotkey to work smarter, not harder. I've given over 50 webinars and have over 600 videos on YouTube. I also have 3 Udemy courses teaching people how to automate their desktop computers.

    My website is the-Automator.com where I show people how to automate the mundane.

    I also have a masters in market research and spend ~20 years working as a data scientist.

    My passions also include direct marketing which is WAY more efficient than any sort of mass-marketing! I'm a huge fan of Dan Kennedy, Jeff Slutsky, John Carlton, Gary Halbert, Joseph Sugarman, Claude Hopkins, Bill Bishop, Jay Abraham, and Victor Schwab. (Oh I guess I should say I read a lot too!)

    Hello everyone,
    My name is Uday. After working 19 years at the same company, last Thursday happened to be my last day at work. But I hope that this will bring other opportunities and guess what, I happened to get a really nice domain name, TicketStud.io today ( I hope it is nice, not sure if I should try for .com but they are so difficult to get.)
    I have no background of web development, so I am going to start learning HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Bootstrap, Ruby on Rails etc. I am hoping to bring my MVP in next 6 months. The plan is to have SaaS application selling tickets online.
    Happy to be part of this community.

    Hi! My name is Foad. I have been lurking in IH and listing to @csallen interviews for a long time. But last week I finally decided to stop dreaming and do what it takes to transform my 9-5-work-for-others life to an indie hacker one! So I launched my first real indie project pyremote.com to scratch my own itch. I had so much fun building the MVP. I am also starting to blog and gather an audience. I know for a fact that I have a lot of things to learn from all of the wonderful people here. So here I am :)

    Hi everyone, I'm Santiago and last week I've decided to become self-employed.

    I provide tech consulting with a focus on leadership and web/mobile development, strategy, testing, deployment. I'm also interested in creating digital assets in the form of videos or ebooks.

    First, I'm trying to provide value by writing about leadership and lessons learned in medium, dev.to, and recording tech videos on youtube.

    I hope to start building an audience on twitter that eventually gets me my chance to provide my services and become self-employed.

    I would love to find a mentor guiding me in these new waters.
    You can find me in twitter @sesteva or checkout my articles here https://dev.to/sesteva

    Hi gang, I'm Andy and during this curious time with Corona Virus consuming emotion, energy, enthusiasm, hopes, and dreams, I'm launching a subscription-based newsletter that addresses macro-level issues to push and prod readers into action (investment or building a business to respond to a need). News delivery must change. The format hasn't changed since the written text went to the screen. These macro-issue based newsletters will allow a flow of monitored communications with subject matter experts or subscribers for a digital round-table. The topic remains active until the community no longer demonstrates further demand/interest. We will touch "third rail" issues including politics, religion, and race. We will discuss what to anticipate from each other for the next few years coming out of this Covid-19 era. We will look at business and social issues alike. At times, we may even be completely right. Thoughts will be respectfully presented and considered discussions entertained.

    I'm from the SAP global corporate consulting world and moving into something of a passion. I look forward to suggestions on platform selection and subscription generation ideas. I'm sure I'll generate 100s of mistakes. but that's part of the joy of the journey.

    Hi everybody - I'm Tyler, and I recently launched a new passion project Code Faster to help developers improve their productivity. I've been really passionate about developer productivity for the past 9 years, invested countless hours learning productive developer tools, reading everything I could find, and developing original techniques to improve productivity.

    My first step is a blog https://codefaster.substack.com which discusses tools and techniques for being a faster developer.

    Step 2? Who knows! It could be consulting, a product, mentorship, or even a type of business that hasn't been invented yet. Whatever helps people code faster, that's what I want to do.

    My name is Brenda - co-founder of SKWSH.

    SKWSH is a next-gen dating app that goes one step further by suggesting date locations and letting both parties know when they’ve arrived at their date spot; eliminating unnecessary back-and-forth and the uncertainty of meeting in person all within 96 hours.

I'd like to learn more about growth hacking and marketing in general now that we're close to launch. Nice to meet you all and happy to be here!

    Hi indiehackers, I'm Susanne.

    I'm looking for easy to build marketplace solutions since I'm not a coder. I compared bubble.io and Sharetribe and several WordPress solutions.

    1. bubble.io and Sharetribe flex take quite some time to build. Also, I need to run it on servers in Germany because of data protection. With this restriction, bubble.io charges > 1.500/mth for an AWS hosting in Germany.
    2. WordPress solutions like WooCommerce lock up quickly. Also, adding app integrations easily screws up the performance with WooCommerce.

    Key functionalities I'm looking for:

    • event creator
    • appointment planner
    • advanced filter options
    • checkout
    • payment integration
    • chat integration
    • video integration

    Do you have any other marketplace solution that you can recommend?
    Or sth like a wizard to easily build a marketplace? @racheljcox and I were wondering if there are technical restrictions/ obstacles why there is no wizard out there yet.

    I look forward to hearing from you.
    Thanks a lot!! Susanne

    Hi all, Jonathan from New Zealand here. I'm currently building https://gitarborist.com - a Github app to manage PRs that depend on other PRs (i.e. merge order is important), as well as scheduling merges and auto-merging after CI.

    I've seen this PR-dependency issue in both my current and previous companies so suspect there's a market out there. Also was inspired by the microconf talk by the guy who founded PullRequestReminders (later PullPanda).

    Would love for this side project to become the springboard that gets me out of the "dollars for hours" lifestyle, but there's a long road ahead. 7 users currently, need to get 100 before Github will verify the app so currently trying to be in "growth mode", though as a developer this is not my comfort zone ;)

    I'm a good looking guy with a big bright smile standing around 5'6 feet tall.
    I was born and raised in Houston, TX. The Great State by the way!
    A little history about myself is all entrepreneurship since I remember how to remember.
    I grew up in a single family home, with a single mother raising me. I am the bigger sibling to my only sister. I learned sales from my mother as she was always trying to make ends meet. From those experiences at younger age I became knowledgeable more on hos to make money independently. Until now I realized well that's what entrepreneurs do! So that makes me an entrepreneur. I am currently invested in Real Estate & stocks in NYSE, but I love entrepreneurship so much I'm eager to meet others with the same mentality as me. I love challenges there is nothing I can not do so bring it! Thanks for accepting me to your community feel free to contact me anytime.

    Hi Indiehackers!

    My name is Josef, I'm one of the directors of Indigro Digital, a nocode/advertising agency based in the UK.

    We've got some really exciting projects in the works. These include a social media strategy maker that asks various questions and emails you a bespoke social media strategy & a new influencer platform we're working on.

    We're also getting a lot more app development gigs that we facilitate by using adalo & glide to create cost effective mobile & web apps for smaller businesses who would usually be priced out.

    I get so caught up in work & often don't get time to speak with others in the nocode community or even do a good amount of R&D, so if anyone wants to bounce ideas off me, use me as a guinea pig or simply have chat, don't hesitate to drop me a message, call or email!

    Cheers guys,

    Hey everyone, I'm Michael and I'm a web developer. I've built a couple community websites for video games (ex. https://siegrs.gg) that help players find teams and others to play with. Although these projects have had decent traction (30-180k members) I never really approached them as a business; more as a hobby. I'm looking to change that, and really learn what it takes to start a profitable SaaS business.

    I am also looking for a new job at the moment, which led me to create an app to help track the status of a given job application and create reminders for myself to follow up with certain companies. I get excited about building something new, and skip over important steps in building an audience, marketing, etc. So, I'm forcing myself to slow down on the dev side and learn more about the business side.

    Looking forward to connecting with people and learning A TON from everyone who's willing to share their success or failures.

    Hello people! My name is Alessandro Navarros, I am a Brazilian, graduated in Administration and have worked as a business consultant for over 20 years. I am a beginner in the non-code application creation segment. My friend Renato Asse from the SemCodar community introduced me to this world. A wonderful human being who shares all his knowledge, free of charge with people. Speaking frankly with you, I come from a series of successive disappointments in my latest ventures and I see this model of programming without code as a great opportunity to resume my life and give a better future for my family. My goal is to create an application aimed at a logistics marketplace with a focus on cargo transportation. Although I am not fluent in the English language, I can communicate well in writing. I will be very grateful with the guidance help of everyone who can help me. Thank you so much for letting me be part of that community. Hug!

    Hi all,

    I'm Anthony, an Indie Hacker based in Dublin, Ireland.

    A few days ago I launched https://socca.io - a virtual café where people from all backgrounds and horizons can meet up for a few minutes to learn new things, share their ideas and challenge their beliefs.

    I started SOCCA with the idea that people should be able to inquire with one another as equals, as we all have our own knowledge, experiences and wisdom.

    On the platform, people can either chat about one of the 50+ topics available or find a match and share their ideas on a curated "Discussion of the Day". At the moment, people can share their thoughts about the following question:

    Individuals in Society: Where does your responsibility begin and end?

    This is a quite relevant discussion these days considering that the recent COVID-19 pandemic has raised questions over individual liberties versus the common good. If you'd like to give it a try, you might not be able to find a match right now, but just let me know, I'll join in, and we can match and chat together on the platform.

    Hope to see you around on both IH and SOCCA! Stay safe

    Hi everyone, I just watched a youtube video from Ali Abdaal, and because of his video I search about indiehackers.com. I really want to learn more about the digital aspect. I don't have enough knowledge for this area such as making a website, blogging, video, and so on. I want to try to make my first blog. But I am still struggling to find my topic. I hope I can find a way. A little bit of myself, I am still a student right now. :)
    Thanks!

    Hello everyone!

    I founded Lumiate (lumiate.co), the first mindfulness app designed for the digital work environment. To make screen time mindful, we combine efficacy-based guided meditations with patented display software, think Night Mode for mindfulness, that can assist meditation throughout the day, when you're too busy to meditate.

    I invented the software and since partnered with a PhD who teaches Meditation Theory at Dartmouth. He helped create the guided meditation program and helped invent the display software meditations.

    Please check it out at lumiate.co--the app is free to download.

    Thanks!
    James

    Hi all, I'm Vance, I own a motion design studio and currently am pursuing a Masters's degree at USC's Iovine and Young Academy. I'm looking for a partner to help develop a design pre-visualization tool I'm calling MindFrame. Here's a short video explaining what it's all about.

    https://f.io/XlfFRtq

    I'm hoping to find a development partner in the coming months and build out an MVP. I have very minimal coding experience but have a clear vision of what I want to build and how to market it.

    Hi Indie Hackers!
    I am Justin, founder of J&JClub - https://jjtravelclub.com. A few months ago we launched the first version of our product. We aim to disrupt the travel industry by eliminating intermediaries and introducing novel access to travel inventory.
    Just imagine being your own travel agent and not paying whose 35% commissions or other huge fees intermediaries are charging. Our members get access to travel inventory with a 0% margin. We are laser-focused​ on sourcing the best travel inventory with a zero-margin for our members. Just think of access to bed banks or private transfers with the cheapest rates ever.

    Last 6 years I was in charge of growth at an online travel agency and bootstrapped tour operator. Being an insider of the travel industry led the path to a new venture.

    Hey everyone,

    I'm Mark!

    Around a year ago I embarked on a mission to make high-quality guidance for tech entrepreneurs more accessible and affordable.
    As a solo founder I understand how important it is to get the right support, and I want to create a place where founders can have access to people with REAL startup experience, and engage with these people to work towards project goals and KPIs.

    I recently launched the new site;
    https://www.biznest.io/

    As the platform is (very) early stages, all advisors are currently offering to undertake FREE calls for early adopters.
    The advisors experience ranges from AI, to Fin tech, to Robotics, and everything in between!
    If you'd like to sign up it's quick and free on the website. You can also get in touch and ask me any questions; [email protected]

    Also, I am looking for a Co-founder/CTO who has experience building out Marketplaces and/or SaaS applications and is interested in working on a project in the startup / investor ecosystem. If you're interested hit me up on the email address above.

    Cheeeers :)

    Hello! Matt here~ it's my first day.
    I launched a free, small business website about what I call "chain sharing."
    Share one business to share your own and the cycle continues.
    KiShares.com
    All posts are also shared on all KiShares pages and social media.

    Since one of the first steps of starting a business is forming partnerships to mutually share each other, I made it automatic, programmatically.
    I hope to replace paid marketing and create a community of businesses sharing each other.

  174. 1

    Hi Indie Hackers! I'm about to launch my first-ever SaaS business. I'm looking forward to sharing ideas and being a part of this community.

    Hey everyone, I'm Philip. An Entrepreneur based between London and Germany!

    For the last 12'ish months I've been on that lonely road of Entrepreneurship and have been developing my Tiny GPS Tracker Startup, that will hopefully pre-launch some time in the next few weeks.

    It's been a rocky road to get my MVP but everything is it's certainly coming together now. Wow... the journey so far has been so challenging, yet fun at the same time. I'm sure many of you can put your hands up for working 12+ hours a day!

    What I've set out to accomplish in 2020 is to really make less mistakes and learn from the errors from the day, month or year before. It's quite disturbing seeing time fly by so fast these days, so that said my ultimate goal is to make better decision now to bring a brighter future tomorrow. If I can also build a strong team, to steer my venture from zero to hero this would be fantastic!

    Cheers

    Hello, folks, my name is Hendy.

    I am 23 years old and I have decided to take the path of entrepreneurship. As you can imagine, lasagna is my favourite food! I found out about the site on youtube and I liked the concept of community and poadcast from the very first seconds. So what's my work? I created an educational web application for college students. In these times of pandemic, I find it will be useful in the community. Giving me your opinion on the subject would be appreciated :) .

    Nice to meet you all in these bizarre times we are going through. I am a technical lead building user-focussed web applications for 10+ years.

    Hi I'm Mike. I quit my well paying software engineering job in January and since then I've had a series of adventures till April 16th. On apr 16th I bought an e-commerce brand from my mentor and I've been steadily growing it since then. My goal for the first month is 3k revenue, and I plan on increasing top line revenue by 1k each month. I'll be doing it through scaling up ads, and making my way on to other online sales channels besides Shopify.
    edit: my store is at www.chiefsformen.com please let me know if you have any feedback!

    Hi everyone!

    My name is Matt Madeiro. I'm a designer/developer of apps and websites based in Houston, Texas. I've spent the last six months developing an online tool to create interactive stories. (The closest approximation would be interactive fiction, but the tool has enough flex to create text and image-based games, too.)

    This is—at the moment—more of a passion project than a super fleshed out business plan. My chief motivation is to give back to the interactive fiction community. I owe so much of my programming and writing skills to it, and I remember vividly a much younger version of myself falling in love with the stories and wanting to tell my own. Income is a secondary goal, but I'm hoping by interacting with the community here that I might learn better how to monetize what I've built.

    No landing page to share just yet, but I'll post images of the app in progress if I'm able. I'd say it's about 75% complete at this moment in time.

    Really looking forward to meeting everyone here. If I can be of help to anyone, please don't hesitate to reach out to me!

    Hi, Bobby Fin here.

    I've had a new idea a day for as long an I can remember. I haven't actually been able to finish any of my ideas until two weeks ago. I finally published an online course on how to make gigantic bubbles (https://bubble-innovation.thinkific.com/courses/how-to-make-gigantic-soap-bubbles). I'm excited to keep bringing new ideas to life as I still struggle with the daily grind.

    The hardest part is focusing on the ideas I can do with my current skills until I can find a team.

    Hey IndieHackers, my name is Fernando. I'm a Brazilian artist, who loves drawing and knowledge. I saw a bunch of people on TikTok giving good feedbacks about this community and something that I always wanted since my teenagehood was to build something for myself. SO, I really hope to gather a lot of content and contacts with you guys, grow my game a little bit and spread the knowledge.

    Hi all!
    I'm Hermes. I have a background in engineering, but am also really interested in the product side of things and how to handle growing a business.

    Hi I'm Ivan I'm a product manager and a project manager for my own firm we develop mainly web apps 4 clients and I have an active interest in iot and other web based products and always I'm thinking about building my own products and I have ideas every day but I'm looking for the big one. I have previously built a shopify app that had about 10000 users that signed up so I think that was a pretty good wind and but I'm looking to get off a particular platform and build my own as independent because I found that shopify actually when I first joined was very keen to do at development with independent developers but I think that model has changed so I believe I was successful with that particular project I did it in my spare time as I had a full time job at the time and you know in fact that help me start my own business helping other people develop these types of apps and others. so what I'm looking for here at Indie hackers is just to be a little bit more community-based and chat to other people about their experiences and in case they don't get stuck when something perhaps I can get someone to help or I can help other people when they are stuck with either you know looking at ideas or you know building software it's very difficult doing things on your own which I found but having other people there makes it a lot easier

      Hey Sam, do you have any experience in AR for ios/android?

        Not yet! It’s something I’ve been wanting to explore. I did just start dipping my toes into Unity and developing for the Oculus Quest.

    Hey Friends,

    I'm Tiger, a 19 y/o kid often coming here for inspiration, I truly enjoy surfing around and seeing what people have achieved. I decided to sign up to perhaps connect with people in the future, I enjoy mostly building Web Applications and possibly Apps in the future. My goal is to land a Front End developer job this year or at least an internship. Programming started off by me wanting to get into something related to tech that could possibly make me big bucks, it has now turned into an addiction and a passion, something I truly enjoy, especially building Web Applications, I am currently building a website, which is gonna be a personal project, it is a small mix of StackOverflow and indie hackers. I think I will enjoy it since I am often on these websites.

    Hello fellow hackers,

    My name is Galy, I consider myself as a newbie. Differently from most of you, I have founded nothing yet. I am so excited to be here and I am looking forward to learn about the community.

    Thank you very much.

    Hello fellow hackers!

    I finally decided to join the community.

    I'm Brian, founder and CEO of Noptin, a fast growing WordPress newsletter plugin.

    We are uproaching 2000 active installs, (should happen before next month is over) and I'm slowly setting up plans in motion to get this to 5000 active installs by the end of the year.

    Being able to do this, while working on a full-time job, is a challenge that I'm looking forward to seeing if I'll achieve.

    You can check out the website at noptin.com

    Hey!

    I'm currently working on a platform to help guide and organize early stage entrepreneurs' efforts. I have experience in venture debt, and working in digital marketing for startups.

    My goals for 2020 are to see if the platform I'm working on is worth further effort and to try and make another source of income other than my job.

      Hi Gestri,

      Could you tell me more about your idea? It sounds similar to something I have been working on and I'm looking for someone to help on the marketing standpoint.
      Ping me an email at [email protected]

      Thanks :)

    Hi, I'm Patrick 👋

    I've been a professional software engineer for about a year, but I've been programming and building things since my teens. I'm interested in learning from and connecting with people who are also building businesses. Right now, I have a decent corporate job, but it's not fulfilling AT ALL. I know I can do and make more. So I'm here...looking to learn, grow, and share my experiences.

    My goal for 2021 is to be able to work remotely 🏝 and have multiple streams of income. 💰😎

      Hey Patrick, lets catch up! I am in a similar position!

      Hi Jacob,

      I am Iesse from Budapest.

      As you said no knowledge of coding, I am in the same boat but that's to indie hackers and I found many tools that can help me to create tools/apps
      with knowing coding
