Welcome, introduce yourself! (Week of Sep 13th)

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, I'm Mika, software developer amongst many others things. Looking to finally turn one of my dozens of pet projects into a profitable side business. Very excited to have found this community - so much that resonates with what I've been thinking about.

    Hi All,

    I'm Chris; a Product Manager by day and wannabe indie hacker by night.

    I'm currently working on a side project to make it easier for people to track their food intake....

    I'm looking forward to being part of the indie hacker community and connecting with people in the same boat, facing the same challenges.

    1. 1

      Hi Chris. Working on a similar thing from Ghana. Can we possibly bounce off some ideas?

  3. 3

    Hi! Jamie here. I’m working on Goodnote.org and fulfilling a goal to perform 1 million acts of kindness. Only getting started!

    Hi Rosie and All,

    I am Eric from Edinburgh in Scotland. Experienced Marketing, Operations, Sales, Strategy... and worked for a number of Bluechips and Startups over decades.

    Stumbled in here while searching for a Technical Cofounder for each of my startups.

    I have the Business side, the idea and the Investors, I have minimal technical skills. I looked at outsourcing and things like Fiver. But I reached the conclusion that I am better looking for a CoFounder.

    I am committed full-time to the project, I plan to have the company lauunched and profitable in the very near future.

    Good luck to everyone and nice to know you.

    Hi all,

    I'm Ben. By night I've been working on a piece of software that simplifies the representation of complex statistical models like Discounted Cash Flow valuations. I've found spreadsheets to be pretty unwieldy and hard to maintain, so I'm working on a solution that will hopefully remove the need for spreadsheets entirely.

    1. 1

      Wow!! That's gotta be a paradigm shift if you make it happen.

      1. 1

        Maybe yeah. It's kinda like the polar opposite use case of a product like AirTable.
        In AirTable, speadsheet operations must always apply to entire columns of data since AirTable is fundamentally a database abstraction. It's good at modeling record-based data, but if you want to create a 'discrete' model like the ones in DCF valuations, you're outta luck.

  7. 2

    Hi all!

    I'm Heval, a Python developer who has a strong background in creative industries for 15 years as a film producer and director, then moved to a second career three years ago.

  8. 2

    I'm Cameron and I live in SF. I'm currently working on a few different small projects and I look forward to interacting with the IH community to find inspiration and collaboration.

    Hi, just found this amazing community!

    I am a full stack web developer and I work as a freelancer on the side.
    I am looking for advice how to scale up this business (with limited amount of time unfortunately) and how to win more clients.

    Also I have a good idea and a properly researched plan for a Wordpress plugin, which I am planning to work on in the future and which I need advice for as well.

    1. 1

    Currently working as a Health/Phys Ed teacher in Philly (virtually) ... have my music production site as a side project but want to find my way back to coding ....

    Hi, I'm Pawel, a software developer based in London. I want to make myself accountable by sharing the progress of my side project on Indie Hackers.

    The general idea is to be able to annotated your source code with diagrams and images (scratching my own itch there).

    Hi,

    I am anyfactor.

    I work as a freelance python developer particularly working with automation, data and API. I LOVE to do social media management, community management and digital marketing gigs to fill in the time.

    I wouldn't say I am an expert in web dev but I dabble with Vuejs.

    I am trying to work on two ventures - One relating to binge watching ; Another is a "reasonably automated" but non-spammy social media service as I don't believe in digital marketing should have "x" amount goals.

    Hello, I'm Sandro heading Enable Security (https://www.enablesecurity.com). Our day to day is penetration testing (i.e. security testing / hacker simulation attacks). We also develop (offensive) security testing tools - focused on the real-time communications technology (e.g. VoIP and WebRTC) - and looking at how to build that part into a sustainable business too. I'm referring to https://www.sipvicious.pro / https://support.sipvicious.pro. Oh, and we're funded through our own business (self-funded).

    I was reading a book called "Zero to Sold" that kept mentioning this community so I thought of checking it out. I'm here to learn more about business models that might fit for us. And, perhaps to bounce ideas, connect with interested individuals and learn what works and what doesn't for others in similar situations.

    Hey everyone - Longtime listener (podcast), first time caller (joining the forum).

    I've always been an indie hacker at heart and finally decided to join the club to start learning from others in the community.

    My goal is to do a Sam Parr, I'd like learn from others similar to his experiences and curb the learning curve and create a successful online business through a blogging, newsletter, and/or online media business. I'm excited to be a part of IndieHackers and I'm open to feedback and listening to others opinions.

    My super-power is to seek the truth
    My weakness is distraction (i.e. noise)

    2020 Goals:

    • Finding my writing style for capturing audience attention (on my blog)
    • Create a process of writing & consistency
    • Generate some organic traffic
    • Analyze the process and continuously improve (CI)
    • Write regularly

    2021 Goals:

    • Continue to refine my process through CI
    • Lock down my writing voice, start writing regularly
    • Generate tons of traffic
    • Monetize that traffic in whatever rev model works

    Hi all,

    I'm new here. I'm building a new SaaS platform called revnt.io and a friend who's active on here suggested I post that I'm looking for a cofounder.

    Here's the one-line pitch: revnt is an aggregated hub for professional events that dramatically increases audience engagement through ongoing and continuous conversations, community, and content access. Conceptually, think Netflix Meets LinkedIn Meets Slack for professional events.

    In terms of traction, I have an in-depth static prototype built, I already have three B2B customer preorders (with hopefully 3 more on the way) in the last week, and I have investors (though seeking more) for our pre-seed/seed round. If interested, please email me at: [email protected]. Thanks!

    Excited to interact with you all :)

    Despite all that, I couldn't stop the bug buzzing in my ear to leave everything that I'm doing behind and to focus my time and energy on building a business around my passion: creating video content. So I did, and I'm now working on building Not in the Cards Media.

    I'm terrified and frustrated and confused, but mostly PUMPED, so I'm excited to make this work.

    I'm joining this community in the hopes of finding peers who are going through similar feelings and experiences and rise up together.

    Excited!

    Hi there ! Thrilled to joined Indiehackers. I am the founder of monthlybillz.com, a web app that helps Startup founders to tightly manage their overall spending on various software subscriptions that fuels their business.
    I know, we can always use spreadsheets to track all those domain purchases, development tools etc.. But, it does not give the control and visibility needed to avoid wasteful spending. That's where a cool tool like MonthlyBillz becomes really useful. Looking forward to this community for their feedback, in my product journey.
