Welcome, introduce yourself! (Week of May 31st)

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

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

First, introduce yourself!

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

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

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

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

Dive into learning.

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

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

Next, get started!

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

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

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

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

    Hello, my name is Jacob. I’m currently working on a side project called Queu (It combines all of your streaming subscriptions like Netflix, Hulu, HBO, etc. into one app) and my initial goal is to get Queu to 100 users. I’m really excited to learn and grow and be apart of the community!

    Sup! Aaron Jack has recommended this community in his video on youtube. The more I read about it the more I like it! My name is Herman Leus and I am senior software developer from Ukraine. I am a developer almost over a decade already. I was focused on building a career but things really became repetitive and uninspiring. I am also a crypto owner as I believe in a future behind freedom of international trade. Once I have asked Blockfolio (one of the most popular crypto asset management tools) add very specific but useful asset property on their main dashboard "profit/loss" which they said that they have other more important priorities. So I decided at least once make something useful for myself and in the same time for everyone else. I have created my own crypto asset tracker https://cryptobvious.com which I really like. There is still much of work to be done. But this is a great start of something I made myself which is useful for myself and I do believe for others too. I am really glad I can see people working on theirs own projects and get inspired and would love to communicate.

    Hi my name is Andreas and I am from Canada. I am a recovering tech marketer and I have recently launched a real product, brewed botanical tonics made from medicinal mushrooms.
    Because of my tech background, we used a ton of methods usually not found in food, such as beta testing and rapid iteration.
    We are about three weeks from Lauch with our chaga drink - we were supposed to go to market in March, but COVID caused a fair number of delays.
    For tools, we use WordPress, Shopify. Our design work was outsources to upwork, where we found an ace graphic designer at a great price.
    Hoping to connect with other founders, especially when the going gets tough.

  87. 1

    Hey all, I'm Cody. I've started up a side project that is quite different than anything I've heard on the podcast or seen around, so let me know if this is even a good place for me.

    I've been a developer for the last 10 years, and I've done a few side projects that have mostly become vaporware... and abandoned. So I've embarked on doing something different to generate some income.

    I've started a youtube channel to learn how to do graffiti/street art to scratch the itch of making art again.

    Although I'm doing it with the heart of just having a non-coding hobby, I'd love for it to be self-sustaining (income supports the raw materials and time needed).

    Let me know if this is a decent community for this kind of project. I've heard nothing but great things about this community and hope we can all chat and cheer each other on!

  88. 1

    Hello, I'm Endy. I'm currently working on a side project called [email protected] The idea is to enable people experience drastic change in their lives. Each user commits to an ambitious goal with deadlines. Then receive tough love whenever they fall off track. E.g. accountability partners reach out. It's a bit controversial but a lot of people have said they like that it's different. So I'll take different :)

    I am also a productivity enthusiast and researcher (my PhD was on productivity and digital addiction). I occasionally tweet (@todo_whiz) practical tips based on concepts in Behavioral Economics and Psychology.

    I'm excited to be here. Looking forward to learning and helping others as well.

    Hello Indie Hackers. My name is Perry and I've been working on a side project called Good Annotations. Its a online service that lets you upload a screenshot or image of your product and it automatically adds a browser border and background. You can then either download it or add some annotations to highlight important things in your screenshot.

    I'm really excited about learning what it means to be an indie hacker and see if its something I can grow. I'd be very happy if i can get to 100 monthly users and even 1 paid user would be a amazing.

The product is called Decision Donkey (www.decisiondonkey.com) and it will be designed as an interactive/collaborative Pro/Con list to help businesses make better decisions + give them a platform to review and measure past decisions.

    I hope some people will check it out and provide feedback on if they or their businesses would use a tool like this to help make better decisions and manage past decisions.

    My goals are to receive beta signups to show validation for the idea. I created a quick landing page:

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Jermaine Oliver and I'm really excited to join indie hackers. I joined for a few reasons. Currently I'm a software engineer working on a side project to help businesses and consumers track the public opinion of their local stores and public locations using ML as related to COVID-19. This will help consumers ensure that the businesses they are visiting are following the necessary guidelines, and it will let businesses determine whether they are viewed favorably on the subject. As we begin to reopen the country in the US, I believe this will be a handy application and I'm hoping to build a startup from it to build capital and/or investor support to spur on some of my other ideas as well.

    I am hoping to engage in discussions regarding startup ideas, gain knowledge about the startup process, and possibly receive advice or feedback on my approaches.

    Thanks for reading!

    Hi everyone. My name is Elena. I'm a CPA and have been in both, public and private accounting for 12 years. I have been fortunate with my employers but the reality is, even though I'm well compensated, I'm miserable doing accounting day in and day out. I would love to gain financial freedom so I can discover myself a bit more and pursue my interests. I've always wanted to travel and learn to play guitar for instance. I want to help those less fortunate not just by donating money but also actively, physically participating in doing something good. I don't know where to start and what I'm even planning on doing but hoping this site will give me some inspiration. I'm so tired of feeling trapped, scared of failure and of jeopardizing my financial security. I can do better than that. My apologies for not having an idea to share at this time. But hi all!

    Hello, my name is Abdulwahab, a mouthful, I know, so you can call me Abdul. I am an aspiring web and android developer, ethical hacker and entrepreneur. This is me actually trying to accomplish something for the first time. I am the kind of person that knows a lot and yet knows nothing. I started coding at an early age but never really perfected or went far on any single programming language. I lose interest and motivation quickly, as a result I have an "artificial" knowledge on various topics which I realized will not help me in the long run. I hope this community will help me focus and direct me on the correct path.

Building a meaningful online business is something I feel pretty passionate about and I think Indiehackers is a great platform to start learning about the space.

    Hi. My name is Alex. I've worked on a side project for traders the last 10 months. Started with no to minimal research. Just found out, that this isn't going to work. Back to start. Trying to find a new idea for a project now. This time will do my research before touching code. I would like to start a micro SaaS for traders, staying small, just to give me more financial freedom. Looking forward to lean a lot here

    Hi all, Garm here.
    As my weekend project I’m working on a fun little ios/android app that helps you reconnect with your favorite people called Helden. 
It’s a place to reconnect with people in your contact lists you're particularly fond of, but do not talk to on a regular basis (anymore). Think ex-colleagues you wish you could work with again, that friend of a friend you'd love to start a band with someday, or simply someone you'd love to hang out with sometime. On Helden, you can swipe right on these sorts of people. If they swipe too, you join each other's crew. Crew members can send each other messages.

    iOS: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/helden/id1510026750?ls=1 
Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.garmr.superpower 
Some more screenshots here: https://imgur.com/a/G08zshI

    Would love to hear if you recognize this wish to reconnect, and if you’d ever consider inviting your favorite people to join such an app?

    Hey hackers! Finally, I found some time to write an introduction even though I've spent days reading the content. I've launched two startups in the past two years, and one is successful, I might say, growing day by day, helping people to create a logo. I learned a lot already will be more than happy to share my best lessons. In 2020 I'd like to make a significant impact on any startup I create and become a top product designer. Glad to see a lot of familiar faces here already and those who I don't know yet - we'll get in contact!

    Hello everyone,

    After many years of creating software or managing large teams, I figured it was time for a change and decided I would try to start my own company (which, in my head, would be a super cool company where there would eventually be more than just me 🙄).

    This new project started just a few days ago, with the idea of applying the tools and methodologies from the tech industry to... journalism and newsrooms.

    For the next several months, there will be a lot of development and figuring out how all the pieces should fit together, hopefully with some feedback and support from the IndieHackers community.

    And now back to work 😤.

  212. 1

    Hi Rosie,
    I have wanted to start something for almost 5 years now. However, I always get bogged down because of analysis paralysis and lack of commitment. I jump from project to project and never see them to completion. I am confused but haven't given up. I hope to find help in this community to be able to move forward and also help others with whatever, that I have learned on the way.

    Hi everyone I am trying to make a business through social media. As we know the world is advancing rapidly in technology and it made me think why not create a business through social media, this is why i want my job to be on youtube so i can be paid via youtube. I have started to try and grow my own name by starting a TikTok and instagram account and hopefully if i can gain followers there then i will start a youtube account. some people say that it is hard to do this but i believe that if you put your mind to something then it is possible. also i hope i can gain a lot of support from other users here as that is why we are here, to support each other. Anyone who sees this comment then please follow my socials below.

    Hey IH, glad to be here,

    I'm a builder, like many of the folks on here, I have a big weakness; telling other people about what I've built, so feel like getting out of my comfort zone and asking for feedback from the IH community.

    I'm hacking on a project hiya.io that summarises your day every morning with a digest email - a tool to scratch my own itch.
    The problem I was having was (as a dad and having a busy day job) I wanted a quick, detailed, summary of my calendar, weather & finance without trawling apps & sites.
    I started with a bespoke set of scripts to aggregate and summarise my day, then slowly evolved my scripts into a self-serve product and by luck, I've already got just over 100 beta testers. I'm keen to now start opening up the product more broadly to get more feedback.

    Looking forward to the journey together 💪, James

  263. 1

    Hola Rosie! I like this site so far! Great experience!
    I was referred to IH from a reddit comment by 'u/jinvariant'.
    I've been working on a side project last 2 years and now need to spend time outside of the cave seeing how the rest of world reacts to it.

    I hope to bring to table advice on putting together dream projects. Sometimes you don't need an app, or sometimes you don't need a website. If it's your first time, you don't always see that kind of stuff. I'd love to be available to talk to anybody needs advice on where/what to do.

    Anyways, good to be here! Thanks Rosie

This unprecedent time affected everybody but at the same time it is an opportunity to do something. I have three different ideas I want to develop in the respective apps but I have no idea on coding. I start playing with adalo but it will be great to get some feedback and advice from indie hackers.

  274. 1

    Hey Rosie! IH is awesome and the community seems amazing. I love that the philosophy lines up with "making stuff happen" versus "making it look like stuff is happening" (which is a trend pervading the startup world today). Excited to be a part of it!

    Hello, I am Reha

    I was listening to few different podcasts and got familiar with indie hackers concept and community few months ago. It took me some time to join here but better late than never :) I am working full time in a big multinational corporation but want to try kicking my side projects and learn more about developing a product. I have no experience on coding but just started to learn Python 3. Looking forward to develop my own skills and part of a great project.

    Thank you for creating this community to enable people to inspire each other

    Hi, my name is Marcel. Over the last few months, I've build https://thesustainablelist.com/ together with my wife. And now we're at a point where we need to promote the idea, build a community and iterate on the product a lot.

    I have a background in web development and she's a marketer but we're eager to learn more about the world of sustainability and ethical fashion, not only because we're interested but also because it will helps us build relationships with our potential audience and brands.

    I joined Indie Hackers to look for advice on marketing, growth hacking and find potential partners. Since we're parents, our time is extremely limited and we have to spend evening hours and weekends on our project since we both have full-time jobs.

    Really looking forward to get to know the IH community better, share my experience and learn from others.

    Hello all 👋🏼

    My name is Catalin and I'm a software engineer. My goal for 2020 is to build a series of projects in an attempt to generate a consistent side-income flow.

    I'm currently working on Organisely (www.organsiely.app), an appointment scheduling software. We've got 5 beta-users and looking to find our first paying user.

    I'm also documenting my journey as part of a Medium publication I started (https://the-side-hustler.ck.page/landing).

    I've been using IndieHackers for a while now (mostly contributing in the Developers channel) but I hope I can get ideas and feedback from the rest of the community
