Welcome, introduce yourself! (Week of Oct 18th)

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. My names Joel. I'm a self-taught software engineer from the North of England 🇬🇧

    I went from sales to software developer in a year and doubled my salary. 4 years later and I'm a mobile developer for an enterprise level SaaS company offering software solutions to the construction industry. That's my corporate life. I am currently working on a couple of side projects. I'm here to start, and I mean really start. No more stewing on doing it. Just do it. Be held accountable here and build some relationships with other like minded folks along the way.

    📝 TechPickle.com - My personal blog. It is currently a work in progress. I've been too busy trying to figure out the design that I have been neglecting writing. In true lean fashion I am just going to make a basic place to hold my posts and then build on it bit by bit as I learn and grow. I will be posting when it is fully launched with my first article. I will be covering an array of topics relating to tech, programming and product building. Alongside chronicling my journey of becoming a self-taught software developer, and through it, changing my life. I will also be working on different tech products through to completion and providing my insights, successes and failures I learn from along the way. Starting with Alexa skills.

    💬 30 day workout challenge - My first journey into building Alexa Skills. The title says it all. Voice is massive at the moment, so I thought this would be a great place to start for my blog/own interests. There are similar skills on the market but none with the ability to tailor workouts as far as I am aware. I wish I had started this when I originally planned. Would have been perfect for lock-down workouts, but its better to start late than to never start at all. My first step is to continue learning and building the skill before I move on to figuring out the right way to market it.

    📺 Learn how to create videos for YouTube. - My next progression into content creation. Once I nail the blog and hit is consistently, this will be my next challenge.

    ✔️ Finish the website.

    ✍️ Post consistently.

    💯 No matter what, enjoy the journey.

    Stay safe,
    Guillaume

    Hi everyone! I'm Hailey 👋

    I'm the cofounder of Growthmarketingpro.com - the largest growth marketing blog on the internet 🚀

    My partner Mark and I and built it into a 6-figure passive income business in 18 months with SEO alone (without spending a dollar on ads).

    We recently launched an SEO tool called GrowthBar 🌱 growthmarketingpro.com/growthbar/ to help others do the same.

    I'm here because we've got our first 70 paying customers for GrowthBar and we're in the weeds on a redesign and building something really exciting that no other SEO tool has done before -- we want to give back to the planet 🌎 by planting trees for every subscriber who signs up.

    We're so excited about it and I'd love to chat with the community and get some feedback as we are making product decisions along this journey.

    Let's grow stuff together!

    Oh HI! This is exciting. My name is Gabs and I'm from Lithuania.
    I'm currently running the whole marketing department of an IT startup myself, figuring out how to build sucessfull strategies, build community surrounding app development and improve efficiently as I go. It's been pretty hard, but I find my way using google mnostly lol.

    I am happy that I found this community, the best way to learn is with likeminded people help, right? ☺️

    So during work I do marketing, and off of it, I try to merge my extreme sports passion with marketing, produce engaging fun content, inspire women around the world to learn self defense and use their voice, as well push people to their limits and practise not overthinking stuff 😅

    I do also love to dance, I'm super into dancehall, afrobeats, hip hop. I enjoy creating events, creating visual projects and just being on the move.

    Hope too meet great people here 👩🏼‍💻

    In short, if you have a project or idea that involves dance, live performance, music, skiing, public speaking, marketing for a startup, marketing in B2B IT sector, application development - let me knowww. I am eager to learn and meet new people

    I know this is very broad, I hope to narrow everything to few passions, but while I have the energy, I don't want to miss a lot 🧗🏼‍♀️

    Cheers!

    Gabs

    1. 1

      www.codecademy.com is a great place to start as it offers a lot of hand-holding to teach you the basics.

      https://www.freecodecamp.org/ is a fantastic free site with a mix of code challenges in your browser and project challenges you have to go figure out on your own. It's honestly a very fun resource for learning.

      Finally, you can't beat a classic YouTube video course.

    2. 1

      css is hard! I'll be interested to know if you have any favorite resources or techniques!

      1. 2

        And Practicing on phone because I don't have laptop.

        1. 1

          Sorry I didn't see the part about you coding on your phone. There are a few apps I used to use when I was on a bus. Check out 'SoloLearn' or 'Encode'. There are lots if you search 'Learn To Code' on the app store.

          Learning to code and sticking with it will be one of the most rewarding things you ever do.

        2. 1

          coding on a phone? Thats some hardcore difficulty for me, it works

        3. 1

    Hey - I'm a long time entrepreneur in the deep tech space. I've spent most of my career working on solving hard technical problems in data analytics and selling to large enterprise customers. I've recently started a few prosumer focused companies and am looking for help learning how to promote and scale products to individuals. I'm looking forward to reading all the amazing information and diving into the community.

    1. 1

      What is the deep tech you've been working on?

      1. 1

        I spent 15 years building analytic databases (Vertica), then Big Data (Cloudera), and large scale log analytics (Rocana, which we sold to Splunk). It was pretty challenging and exciting going from "how do we do fast queries" on what was in 2005 a huge dataset of 1TB to "how do we predict outages or intrusion attempts on a global scale" at Rocana.

    Hey folks,

    Hi, my name is Hasan Abdul. I was an aerospace engineering student and lost interest in the field because I've always wanted to be an entrepreneur and I love creating stuff. I'm very creative when it comes to solving problems, designing, and creating new stuff and most engineering fields don't really allow you to let your imagination run loose. So I decided to make the switch to computer science because I can't take my aerospace engineering knowledge and create a business or a side income out of it or pretty much do anything with it outside of the office. So I started to teach myself networking, linux, and other stuff such as active directory etc. I then realized that it didn't really allow me to create cool stuff. I always thought programming was super hard and took a lot of time to learn. It really isn't. Once I got the hang of networking picking up programming was pretty easy. However, as I looked around different tech fields I came across blockchain. I thought blockchain development was really cool so I did an entire course on blockchain development that took me from beginner to advanced and creating new blockchains on Hyperledger, Multichain, Stellar, Ethereum creating smart contracts etc. However, yet again, I couldn't really create anything besides a blockchain from scratch and it was all backend. I couldn't visually see my work and couldn't create a front end for it. So I just went ahead and watched 3 hours of html on youtube, did a course on front end dev which I did html a second time and learnt css, and then finally I'm currently doing a really good full stack dev course on udemy that's teaching me everything from html, css, javascsript, dom, api's, databases using mysql and mongodb, and even backend using nodejs. I'm also learning how to use front end frameworks such as react and bootstrap which I really like since I can be creative and make cool stuff.

    Currently, I'm trying to master these skills to create fun side projects and maybe even create cool blockchain based projects and use the skills I've learnt so far in programming. I tend to get creative at times and come up with a lot of project ideas. I usually write them down and I have about 30 projects I could do. Writing them down and coming back to them a while later helps me figure out if they'e viable or even good ideas and if they're not I cross them out instead of deleting them. I'm also writing a script for an open world game concept. Once I'm done this course which I'm sure will be the first of many, I'm planning on starting 12 projects in 12 months as well as freelancing to gain some experience creating stuff from other people's imagination and requirements. I'm here to get inspired and maybe even inspire and share concepts and ideas and one day maybe profit from these projects and find partners to work alongside with. Thanks

    Hi Rosie, hi community,

    My name is Martin and contrary to most of you (as far as I browsed until now) I am not a developer. I know my way around basic coding but I am far from being proficient.

    Nevertheless, I find the whole premise of indiehacking extremely fascinating and am currently dabbling into meaningful posters for couples at thingstodoforyou.com 💖💖

    I am mainly looking for a community to keep myself accountable as well as potentially getting some feedback (if you are willing to share your thoughts with me, I would be ecstatic.

    Anyway, I hope you have a wonderful day! Happy to be here.

    Hello all! My name is Laura and I'm based in the U.S. My team and I just launched vigtec (vigtec.io), a new mobile and web app that helps anyone, with any experience level, use algorithms to find investment success. A good way to think about it is if Spotify, Medium, and Yahoo Finance had a baby.

    I'm currently working on crafting an effective marketing and advertising mix for the product. In the past, I've done marketing for everything from restaurants and dog daycares, to HR technology and space management solutions. However, I've never marketed a mobile/web app before. I'm sure many on here might agree with me that the marketing and advertising landscape has changed quite a bit, even over the last few years. My goal over the next few months is to gain a full grasp of these changes and solidify a mix of strategies that'll help us scale our user growth to a level that'll enable us to seek out a Series A.

    I'm very excited to connect with fellow members, share experiences, exchange ideas, learn, and hopefully help some people along the way!

    Hey, Dan here. I'm a marketer with around 5 years of experience under my belt. I co-founded 2 businesses:

    🌶️ Chillital.com - a CRO (conversion rate optimization) consultancy agency focused on helping e-commerce owners and SaaS founders get more conversions from their existing traffic.

    🚀 Conversion-apps.com - a business focused on helping Shopify owners find the right apps for their stores as well as tips and tricks that can increase their conversion rates. Sharing is caring, so we write about tried and tested methods they can use to get more people to reach the Thank You page.

    But we don't just write about apps, we also build them. We are launching EZ Order Tracking, a blazing fast app that creates a tracking page on any Shopify Store.

    We are going to launch the app early December and so we created a pre-launch exclusive free plan. If you want to get on board, be sure to go to our website and sign up, there is a special offer waiting for you and I don't want to ruin the surprise.

    Hi my name is Zak. I'm from the Caribbean and I think there's opportunity for me to create local spinoffs of popular apps. I'm an electrical and computer engineer by day but I truly am passionate about web design because it has benefits for both entrepreneurship and employment scenarios.

Any advice is appreciated and I don't mind helping as I grow.

    Hi Rosie,
    After joining various other app metrics platforms, App Annie, CrunchBase, Sensory Tower etc I just found your wonderful site with the story of Cron-o-meter, which fit perfectly with what I'm learning on my MSc in entrepreneurship. I could really value the resources on Indie Hackers. Thank you for creating this.

    Best regards

    Hi,
    I'm Divyanth Jayaraj (32, M) , a software engineer from Bengaluru, India. I joined indie-hackers because I was fired from my job as a software developer at a company I loved and cared about. Having met all of my financial obligations and then some; and having worked for more than six years in total (2 in this company), I have finally decided to break out of the pattern of getting hired and getting fired in software companies.

    The biggest problem I face as an employee and in general, is that I am an aspie and don't comform to traditional social norms. Although I struggle with socializing, building and maintaining relationships, I have the ability to learn things and hyper-focus to get difficult tasks done. As you can see, it is this ability that let me find all those jobs in the first place. Now, as someone who has no idea what an "aspie" is, you might be thinking that it's just a case of not having social skills; and that my problems can be solved simply by learning them. To that, my answer is this; Learning social skills is what led me to stay at this job for two whole years. No matter how much I overcame my aspie nature and "learned" social skills, getting fired is an eventuality for me. Maybe, I'll last for 3 years the next time I improve my social skills. Maybe it's 4 or even 5. To me, extending the timer on the ticking bombs that I have for jobs is only worth it, so far. Now that I've put myself in a luxurious financial position where I can last for about a year without a job and then cash out my investments for the rest of my life if I could live frugally, I have decided that the time to break out of this cycle is NOW.

    I have a number of options as to what I could do, some of which include being an indie hyper-casual game developer or being crypto trader.

    I'm hoping to find inspiration and new ideas on indiehackers.

    Hi

    My name is Madhan, co-founded number of saas startups and saas inbound marketer. My saas startups are myreviewninja.com, coldemailninja.com,signaturehero.com and two are under development. All of my saas makes 5k-12k MRR and fully depending on organic inbound leads. Love this community and want to learn from you guys and give back by sharing my growth strategies. I also have a book SAAS inbound bible, which became best selling book for a week in Amazon.in. my book did Ok in sales but I didn't promote as much as I should. Maybe I am not passionate on book promotion or something. Most of our saas got lots of sales and demo from our content focused on customer pain points like how to get reviews on vitals.com site, and doctors signup with us. Similarly my coldemailninja focused on helping Marketing agency pain points. We are getting agency sign-ups. I'm excited and sharing my thoughts. But will keep you posted more. Love you all. I'm from Tamilnadu, India and the same place where Freshworks, Zoho, kissflow, etc born.

    Hi fellow Indie hackers!

    My name is bash and I am a frontend developer currently based in Prague.

    For a few years now, I have wanted to start working on my own product / business but I kept procrastinating by saying that I don't have "a good enough" idea to build and that since I have to work full time, I wouldn't have enough time. I discovered indie hackers earlier this year but I postponed signing up, thinking that I would do so when I finally have something to show. But I decided now that I am not waiting any longer.

    The biggest challenge for me is to stay focused. Even though I wanted to start in the past, I didn't want to stop any of the other things that I worked on in my spare time (my blog https://bash.lk, home automation, travel) I kept thinking that I could juggle all of them at once but that never really worked. So from today, I will focus only on this, because I really value being able to work on my own projects and owning my work and having more freedom over my time so that I can take longer time off to travel / do new things.

    I still don't know exactly what I am going to build but I have been learning recently that it is better to start with an audience rather than an idea. So I am going to put my list of ideas aside and start keeping an eye on spaces where developers (specifically react/frontend developers) hang out to find what they struggle with and see if I can build something to help them. My goal, which sounds very ambitious at this point, is to create a product that generates more than 1000USD by the end of next March.

    With all that said, I look forward to being a part of this great community!
