Welcome to Indie Hackers! 👋 (Week of Jan 19th)

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 for people building profitable Internet businesses. The key word here is "community" — to get the most out of IH, you'll need to speak with and learn from other IHers. 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 and why you're here. What do you hope to accomplish or learn in 2020?

I encourage you to respond to others as well.

Dive into learning.

We've interviewed hundreds of successful indie hackers. I recommend starting by reading a few of their stories. It's a great way to get an overview of what's possible and the huge variety of paths that different people take.

(@csallen also puts out podcast episodes if reading isn't your thing.)

Every founder begins with a different level of knowledge, but learning never ends. It's good to do a little bit of reading upfront, but don't get stuck in a pure learning phase for too long and let that hold you back!

Next, get started!

Once you've got a little knowledge under your belt, the best way to learn is to do. And there's no better time to do than right now.

Check out our "Start" page page for a list of practical steps and articles that can help you on your way.

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, but I hope it helps you get started!

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 share your goals below! 🤗

    Hi 🤟, my name is Dmitry. I am a JavaScript programmer (Frontend / Backend), I have extensive experience in developing SPA and sites with server-side rendering for a high load. Every year I try to start my project, but I lack the support of like-minded people. I came here to find friends and share my experience in commercial development and find financial freedom together with you)

      Hey brother. I admire your experience, I'm self-taught and just starting to build more complex projects on my own, still dealing with some basics. But I have life experience and wisdom and determination and purpose to counterbalance my relative lack of tech skills.

      I just joined also but glad to connect, I have many ideas lined up to work on.

      1. 2

        Hi @mountaindad, I am always open for communication or advice!

    I'm an entrepreneur at heart!

    I'm a full-time digital marketer who has been itching to start and grow multiple income streams. Today, I have one income stream ... but tomorrow, I'd like many!

    Specifically, I'd like to find a viable niche to target who has a legit business problem, and leverage existing SaaS tools to solve for it.

    This article is a big inspiration behind this approach: https://thefoundation.com/blog/the-saas-cheat-code

    1. 2

      Hey, I just joined also. The Foundation approach was also a big inspiration to me, I even joined their program three years ago - but it was the wrong time in my life (overwhelmed with some serious problems), so I dropped out.

      But I've continued from that time with my One Thing, which I've chosen to be app development, and I'm confident in my progress. Hoping to find a real sense of community here.

      1. 1

        We sound like kindred spirits, man! 🙂 Let me know if you want/need any help with marketing your apps in the future

    2. 1

      Greetings! as a newcomer to this site, i was immediately drawn into your post at your mention of being a Digital Marketer. It is actually something i've been trying to study, with the same hopes of starting and growing Multiple income streams via Businesses. I just wanted to wish you much luck and success. Also thank you for sharing the link to 'The Foundation'. I've never heard of it, but i'm about to read up on it right now.

    3. 1

      Hi Dave, nice to meet you! I would like to discuss more about this approach.

  3. 4

    Ahoy! I'm Chris Enitan, I got into writing code because it was unbelievably cool and today I'm looking for ways to make sure having a job doesn't take that fun away from me. Got a few ideas I've worked on and a few more to go including working with Tessel controller boards and transport services. Looking forward to helping people with these skills.

    1. 2

      That sounds awesome man. Hope you find something interesting on here to work on.

    2. 2

      Good stuff brother.

    Hi, my name is acqui, a nickname. I am in 40's and a father of two boys, residing Tokyo Japan. I am currently hired at this food photography production, and in charge of new business development. I am interested in creating e-learning contents to teach how to create e-learning content. My backgrounds are in marketing, branding, and business development in creative industries. My main strength is in "produce," that I manage and develop new business ideas, launch and keep the business going. I am now learning how to shoot video for e-learning. So in the 1 or 2 years, I am trying to have my side project to teach video creation and e-learning creations!

    1. 1

      Hey @acqui420, that's a nice ambition, good luck in your journey!

    2. 1

      Hey there acqui, I'm Ricky and I live in Tokyo too. Good to meet you.

      1. 1

        Hi Ricky. I find the message before, but didn't know how to reply. It is quite hard to find my message and reply. Anyways, cool to know you are living in Tokyo, too! What is it you are doing here in Tokyo, if you don't mind me asking.

  7. 3

    Hi, I'm glad I found you all. I'm a full-stack developer (https://github.com/theo4u) and looking forward to collaborating with others on projects, and gain inspiration.

    1. 1

      hi ,i'm a fuul-stack developer too. And i hope to be your collabrator. Hope to be contacted: [email protected]

    2. 1

      Hi theo4u, lets connect. Willing to collaborate.

      1. 1

        cool, we can. Here's my twitter handle: https://twitter.com/theo4me

    Hi everybody, I am Maxim and pleased to meet you all! In the first place, I am here to engage with the community. I am looking incredibly excited at all the groups and projects and articles available on IH that you can dig in, not to mention all the great people to learn from. Feel free to follow me, and I will make sure to check out your stuff!

    I develop software for companies as a freelancer. In the past few years, I've increasingly specialized in building web and mobile apps with React.js.

    Of course, as the indie hacker that I am, I also create side-projects. The most recent one is GoodTendency, which is a simple habit-building app, that makes you radically accountable and rewards success financially. It is available for iOS and Android (and currently in private beta testing).

    1. 2

      Hey, cool project Maxim! I'm brand new here also but already getting stoked at the energy and action. I checked out your landing page and hey, Svelte! I'm also building with Svelte/Sapper, loving it! Would you sign me up for the beta testing?

      By the way, sad to say your idea is not unique; I saw a habit app with this monetary feature in the past 2-3 years at least. Not sure if they're still running or growing, but it was a solid app at the time. As far as I can see, the financial premise was the same.

      My current project is a little game, super-tic-tac-toe.netlify.com (currently only designed well for desktop, working on responsive design). It's pretty simple, lots more features in the pipeline.

      I'm not sure if there's a direct messaging feature on here, couldn't find it, so I'm just continuing the chat here.

      1. 1

        Hey Mike, thank you so much for your message! Yes, this spirit of impending change is so great, isn't it! I'd love to have you onboard for beta testing, thanks for taking part! I'll reach out to you by email (the one I'm seeing on your homepage) for this, if that's okay.

        I like your tic-tac-toe game. There's one thing right now that bothers me, which is that I have to press a button manually to calculate scores, instead of those scores updating live when the field changes.

        But it's still a great idea and an amazing personal project to pursue. I can imagine if you want to extend further on this idea, it can be topped with a lot of cool features - e.g. playing live against other real people, time limits (where the game ends or blocks are just randomly repositioned), or random blocking squares inside the field!

    Hi! My name is Claudio Aliaga, i'm a software engineer (backend) I came here to find inspiration and start making my own projects..tired of being working under same rigid structures, i want to try something on my own.

    1. 1

      Do you already have an idea on what you want to do?

      1. 1

        Well not yet, I{m trying to come up with one....looking for some inspiration. Some kind of Saas basically, but not sure on what subject. For now brainstorming

        1. 1

          All the best. Also try to think outside the space of Internet services itself. I always feel like there's a lot more in other industries that tech could help with.

    2. 1

      Yeah! Thats the one.

  11. 3

    Hi, I am Harshit and I am looking for inspiration here, My goal is to launch a successful SaaS product.

    Hi everyone 🤙, my name is Chris. I have been a member here for a while but hate to admit that I have been a lurker. This year I am committing to becoming more active in my business ideas and this community! I have a strong background in programming both frontend and backend and am excited to share my experience as well as learn more about marketing and sales. Hoping we can all help each other make some cool stuff!

    1. 1

      Ditto to that, Chris. Good luck! ~former Bostonian

    Hey guys! My name is Daniel and I'm currently a product and project manager and I'm excited to dive deeper into the community! I want to be more involved, gain knowledge and have other opportunities to see where can I grow.

    I'm driven and motivated to help create apps that can help humanity, individuals, and the environment. I love space exploration, personal development, the tech industry and I would be glad to connect and share my experience.

    Stay positive!

    1. 1

      Hi Daniel! Well-picked targets, and I imagine they often go hand-in-hand. Best wishes!

  14. 2

    HI there, I'm Wikus and I'm new.

    Having failed to get my own 2 or 3 projects off the ground for the past 7 years, I think it's time to maybe change my approach. I'm an experienced developer mainly working with Magento and doing some devops at work. Love building data integrations and learning new tech.

    My main goal is to get out of the 8 to 5 and on to the beach, fishing. I don't see why we have to slave away, surely we can automate this? It's 2020 after all.

    If you want to chat about ideas, I love brainstorming too, lets connect. Being a shy loner, I'll just be here in the corner watching everyone till I have something profound to say that rocks the boat. #imbatman

    Have a great day!

    1. 1

      That's roughly my record and timeline as well, but I've got a feeling about this 2020 fella. Good luck this year. Save Gotham.

    Hi everyone, my name is Emily and I'm originally from San Diego, California. My background is in venture capital, investing in tech startups. I've looked at a wide range of startups - lettuce farming robots, AI software for mastering music, smart toilet cleaner devices, and Muslim dating apps. I've also done about 4 hackathons, where I did more of a PM role (built a laundry tracking app, an IoT pill rack, food bank locator web app, machinery analytics dashboard) Over time, I've realized that I enjoyed the scrappiness of hackathons and analytic mindset of VC, so looking for like-minded people to hopefully collaborate on cool projects and turn it into a startup :)

  16. 2

    Hi All. Organizer of the Startup Conference here in Mountain View. Can't believe I never created an account on IndieHackers before. It's about time!

    Hi, my name is Zikani Nyirenda. I am a Software Engineer from Malawi and I am trying my hand at starting an online business in my free time via my startup, NNDI.

    Currently, I'm working on an online printing services marketplace for Malawian businesses and consumers which will launch towards end of Q1.

    My startup also does USSD application development, seeing as how there are still lots of feature phones in and around Africa.

    Excited to be here on IH and can't wait to learn from you all.

  22. 2

    Hey guys, Nick here. Bit of a mixed background. Grew up living all over (South Africa, Austria and Germany). I just finished a coding bootcamp in London studying Ruby, Ruby on Rails, JavaScript and React. Full-stack is where I want to be. Looking to meet like-minded people. I ran my own life-coaching business for about 3 years but at some point I realized I wanted to make a change. Ideally, I would like to travel the world, help serve people through businesses that I create or help co-create and connect with as many people as possible. I look forward to meeting you.

      Hey NK, having just done a coding bootcamp that's really impressive that you are self-taught. Coding is challenging at times. Kudos for pushing through with it.

    Hi, my name is Nikita, I'm 26 years of age, currently based in Moscow.

    I'm a full-stack developer (mainly JS), work for pretty cool foodtech startup. Originally I went into coding so that I could create my own platform and realise my ideas, it's been a while and as time went past, those ideas I had in mind turned out to be quite hard to realise in reality (e.g. decentralised delivery 📦) about which, I can tell you more about it if you are interested in the future, but for now I'm focusing on something else.

    Something else, came up pretty randomly, couple weeks ago I began learning how to design UX, UI and general app design (Figma provides real nice free course, with lots of reading material to expand your knowledge with certain depth). As a began, I was searching where to buy plants for my apartments, so without further do, decided to design an app for plants store, where once you buy a baby plant, you get digital version of it in the app, to keep track of how's it doing (e.g its age, repotting periods, nothing fancy as I had no knowledge of IOT and hardware) and provide you some basic recommendations (e.g sun and water preferences).

    As designs came up to life, I realised significant problem, that I have zero knowledge of growing plants, their categorisations, preferences, etc. So to mitigate it, I came up with an idea to outsource it to sellers, who have more knowledge of what they are selling, from here simple store turned into a platform of local growers.

    Ok...

    So now I have a local sellers app, something like in-between Letgo or craiglist and etsy, with initial focus on plant category, that's where I'm currently at, ohh and forgot to mention, since I kinda liked the idea, I decided to actually bring it to life, right now I'm in the process of coding it :)

    P.S. for monetisation I'm thinking to make it free for buyers and small one time sellers, but if you others you would have to pay small subscription fee (maybe different packages types for number of listings), this way I want prevent turning into advertising agency where app would promote those who buy, hence giving them unfair advantage against those who don't.

    One significant roadblock I have right now, is I that cannot come up with a name for it, but I think intro got a bit out of hand, apologies for it, will add my current progress, not sure where yet, anyhow nice to meet you guys.

    Regards,
    Nikita K

    Hi Everyone, i just clicked on a random YouTube suggested video by @aaronjack, this was 10 minutes ago, now i'm here on this platform which will definately be a life changer in the course of my life. I know this because i belive in the side project i'm working on, ... I learned coding from late 2017 on freecodecamp, of which i'm now using to effect change in the trajectory of my future and that of my family, community and country.

    I don't give up easily, and love to learn from others, ... Thank you indiehackers for this platform. 😎

    Hi folks!

    My name is Filip, I'm a Swedish 27 y/o living in Sicily, Italy. I got tired of my lifestyle in Stockholm, quit my job, broke up with girlfriend and moved to Sicily where I'd never been before. From here now, I'm trying to create a business estimating house prices, a bit like Zillow does, but I let people filter only on undervalued houses. I just got the first version of the website up, www.houseanalytica.com, but I came here to get inspiration and learn about next steps I can take (I'm totally lost after launch a month ago and not sure what to do). How to get users, how I can develop it further so people actually want to pay for it etc. Many questions...

    I started to learn how to code less than a year ago by myself, because I was studying business and economics at uni. I was mostly focused on Python and building statistical models and such. However, in order to learn proper web development, I enrolled to a distance CS program this Fall, and it's with much of this knowledge I've managed to build the website.

    Hope to interact with as many of you as possible. Have a great day/night!

    1. 1

      The content you propose is definitely the type of product I'd pay for easily (there are almost none...). Because of one thing : when you are sure that you can earn money with a product, I think you really think differently

      1. 1

        Glad to hear that! I will create a login system asap so I better can measure traction. Then, if many are using it, perhaps it would make sense to start charging for it?

        1. 1

          What's your business plan?

          Do you plan to propose monthly fees?

          If so, it means you don't target people that look for one unique acquisition? (Or maybe you consider people may use your application for a certain period of time, to do one long term decision? You may want data about it? Maybe you target real estate agencies?

          I intuitively thought it was directed towards private indiciduals who were looking for the greatest deal for them, and that, for you it was all about taking a cut of the acquisition, if a client buys the house ( Which would of course mean huge revenue per client)

          But if so, it would mean you need to protect yourself from the client going past you, and directly to the house?

          What's your target in general, and how do you see your app (or service) being used?

          1. 1

            I've had many ideas about this in my head, so I'm happy you asked these questions! It reminded me of why it doesn't make sense to make it subscription-based (as you said, it's not an everyday problem for individuals). I'm not going to target agencies, at least not for now.

            Instead, I was thinking about targeting individuals and help them with the whole purchase process, and ultimately also rent it out for them - plus take care of maintenance (will outsource that). I want it to be a comfortable investment for people that shouldn't require much work.

            So, I will calculate the yield for every object, plus make a risk calculation (considering risk premium; a two room apartment in central Rome vs. a large villa in the middle of nowhere).

            Today I have one non-paying client I'm doing some work for. He has specified in detail what he's looking for and wants me to find 3-5 apartments he then can choose among.

            I'm using him as a reference case in order to learn and get feedback, and also to see if I ultimately can give him any value. The goal is obviously to go all the way and purchase an apartment, and along the way I'll learn and absorb as much as I can. Later, I should maybe take 1-2 more demo customers before building and finalizing the software.

            1. 1

              Cool,

              So if I understood,

              After you engage with clients through the use of your application ,
              you want to retain them by proposing different other services afterwards.

              Do you think about taking a cut on the savings done?

              Because, like I said, if I thinks as a custommer, I don't think I would see a problem with a software taking a small commission on the price I'll pay for a house, if it allowed me to make significant savings.

              If I was a buyer, I'd also question the algorythm used to determin the value of a property, and would want to know what datas are taken into consideration to determine it (to know if I'm actually saving money)

              1. 1

                Do you have an email I can reach you at? Would like to tell you more there!

    Hello Everyone! Joining IH finally. Great to be here.
    I'm currently learning #nocode tools - to be able to build quickly MVPs.
    That's the goal for upcoming weeks

    Best,
    Marcin

    1. 2

      Be sure to check out our No-Code group.

    2. 1

      Interested in no-code as well. What tools are you learning?

      1. 1

        Webflow, bubble, zapier, air table for now... Classics 😉 what about you?

        1. 1

          Zapier and planning to start webflow. I find glide.io better for building simple web apps than Bubble

    Hi! My name is Alam. I have a strong tech background (originally computer engineering) but have since taken up a lot of nodejs full stack, and have an business background added to that focusing in finance & entrepreneurship. I'm horrible with customer acquisition and marketing though so I hope to learn more from you all.
    I came here to be a part of a community, learn from you all, and hopefully contribute as much as I can.
    I'm working on a "side hustle" right now but hope to convert it to my full time gig soon!

    Hi, I'm glad I found you all. I'm a full-stack developer(for 12 years) and looking forward to get a full-time remote work. [email protected]

    Hi IH's!

    Jordan here. I hope to collaborate with like-minded (goal oriented) individuals who will further compliment my weaknesses in tech. I'm an entrepreneurial growth marketer and prodigious 'idea hamster' with an expertise in discretion, contracts and promotional sales. I am thrilled to have found this community and aspire to be a valued personal resource for occasional forum contributions, as well as a source for growth collaborations resulting in shared greater streams of revenue.

    • Skills: SEO, Lead Generation (email, +), Web/Graphic Design, UI/UX Prototyping, Landing Pages/Websites, Product Design, Website Security Services (Antivirus, Malware Removal and Firewall), Scraping, Project Management, Marketing (SaaS +), Customer Service/PR, Photography, Audio Engineering, Writing, Film Editing, Proposals, Contracts.

    • I'm a resource for maximizing sales (esp. SaaS) and most growth marketing needs.

    • I'm a growth marketer, not hacker. I do not specialize in code - my interest is to collaborate with those who do.

    • Any endeavor partnership (inc. POI) with me receives my upmost attention and the full use of my skills as needed. (My growth game is 🔥🔥🔥 and my leads list is extensive. I utilize many pricey SaaS tools that others don't or simply can't.)

    Greetings! my name is Dominic. I discovered this site on accident, and i must say, from what i've seen so far, i'm excited to see what great adventures await.
    I'm an Entrepreneurial minded individual, who has always wanted to start my own Businesses, however, i've never had the resources or complete knowledge to do so. From App ideas (but no knowledge of coding) to Website ideas and struggling to figure out where to begin.

    I have recently discovered an interest in Digital Marketing, and have been on a mission to study and learn more about it, in addition to how to be successful and eventually start my own company.

    I am just looking to connect with some like minded individuals, or even bounce around some ideas with others that may be interested.

    Hi, I'm Dave! I'm a startup generalist who has had experience in marketing, sales, product strategy, pretty much everything but code. I previously created a product inside of a larger company that I grew to $30k in MRR with a limited team and funding. I'm looking to start my next project and have opted for the bootstrapping route. I started building a product (with a technical cofounder) that makes it easier for startups to build dashboards to track and improve their KPI's. I've worked a lot in the BI space and think I have a recipe to make the process much simpler. I'm super excited to start engaging with the indie hacker community and already love/been devouring the podcasts!

      Hey Dave. Welcome. I just joined the community myself yesterday - this is my first 'reply'. :) The podcasts are indeed great! Well most of them ;)

    Hello guys,

    I have 10+ years of experience in app development and the last few years working on flutter mobile app development. Recently I started on an opensource project call GetFlutter.

    It's a flutter open source UI library with tons of widget like Bootstrap so all the development can directly use in any flutter app development.

    I have written one blog How you can reduce min 30% of your app development time using this UI library.

    https://www.getflutter.dev/blog/why-use-getflutter/

    Please share your honest feedback about this and welcome to contribute to this library.

    Thanks.

    Hi everyone,
    My name is Sterling. I'm a computer science dropout turned novice developer. I studied business before this and always had a passion for creating something that would have a net-positive impact on society. I've been building a social fitness diary that lets you make, track, and share health and fitness progress with friends and family. For free. Follow a diet plan with your partner. Maybe share your workout routine with a friend. Track your weight targets as a team. Teach your parents some yoga moves. Anything goes. It's been over a year of saving up funds, designing, and building the prototype but I'm almost ready to launch the beta. I found this community and thought it would be a great place to share experiences and meet friends and likeminded individuals who might even want to work with me on this project.

    Hello everyone, I am Michael. I am a doctor by day and graphic designer/startup founder by night. I decided to join IH to meet people and get feedback on my startup, pixzapp.com. I am always looking to learn from people and share my experiences in business and life.

  69. 1

    I've been teaching myself software development for the past year while remodeling / managing my first rental property. I started learning software development with the goal of starting my own companies & the longterm goal of making an impact on the world for the better. I have hope that through technology everyone can realize this better future.

    I have an extensive background in emergency medicine later transitioning to sales and business development. I'm interested in real estate, indie / creative projects, fitness, and personal development.

    Right now I'm paying bills with consulting and web development work while I build a more robust development skillset. In the next 5-6 months, I'd like to bootstrap my first startup, find product-market fit, and release a killer MVP.

    In the meantime I workout and code every.single.day.

    Howdy, I am an old-school graphic artist (BFA in 1967). I am at IH to find a developer that is willing to partner with me to CHANGE THE WORLD.

I know it sounds outrageous, but I think I have a protocol (way of doing it) that could work, could make a difference.

    I am very happy to be given the chance to introduce myself to this great community.

    My name is Jean and I spent about 10 years in Asia - Japan and South Korea.

    I worked in a few Korean Startups - initially I was only doing front-end but after lots of learning and doing and failing I find myself, in 2020, able to do a lot more.

    I have been working on my own project for a while now.

    Looking forward to productive conversations, and for opportunities to learn and share.

    My goal for 2020 is to build digital products to achieve £1k MRR.

I just joined but this community is super energizing and inspiring and I look forward to contributing whatever I can!🚀

    Hi, My name is Pulkit, I am a backend developer from India and have worked extensively in RoR, Node.js, and Golang. Currently, I am working on a side-project, where the end goal for me is to create a complete product, this means I need to do not just the backend work, but deal with design/frontend/legal/payments/company registration and all the things that I am far less familiar from. Of course, the end-goal is to generate some income on the side from it.

    In terms of professional experience, I have worked at Gitlab and BrowserStack, right now I am working for an e-commerce company in India.

    Please connect with me if you are interested in knowing more about the project I am working on it. I'll let you know about websites that I consider as my main competitors: hackerrank.com, codeforces.com, triplebyte.com, codility.com and such. To be honest, I am not sure whether I want to disclose all the details here or not.

    Hi! I'm Rob. For the past two months or so, I've left my big fancy corporate job and have started working on an idea to provide small businesses with some business Analytics. Why should all the big companies benefit from all the great technologies out there? Seems to me you fuss around in excel as you try to manage your services business or spend a fortune on big tools. Been re-learning a lot of coding skills that I haven't used in ages, while at the same time have been slapping together my business plan and idea. Looking for a community to share in this exercise as it's a bit lonely sitting at home alone all day. Also looking for potential partners, and validation of the idea. Look forward to interfacing with you all!

    Hi there,
    My name is Donovan. 28, Computer scientist, very into Data architecture and Data Science. I've build a mediation platform similar to what digitalroute.com propose for an entreprise year ago. Pretty much my biggest achievement 'til now.
    For now I'm just an average programmer working on the next big idea I can deploy.
    My goal is to become financially independant by any reasonable mean (business, investment,...) as soon as possible , before I get too old.
    I came here to meet people, to get inspired and build something... or just to talk with new people :)

    Hi all, I'm Thais. I've been following the Indie Hackers podcasts for a few months now and finally decided to join the community! My background is in fullstack product development, using React/React Native, Node.js, and GraphQL mainly. I'm fortunate enough to be able to take a gap year between jobs so I'm using this time to re-evaluate my goals in life and try new things.

    I am also recovering from burnout! I've realized that all of my previous career goals were tied to things that aren't long-term sources of motivation for me: money beyond basic living costs, or a lofty progressive mission at VC-funded startup with competing sets of values.

    Recently, while attending a coding retreat at The Recurse Center (https://www.recurse.com/), I thought a lot about what felt intrinsically motivating to me. For now, I've settled on: curiosity + learning, artistic expression, and community engagement. I also got really into graphics programming, interactions and animations, and creative coding (stuff using WebGL, Three.js, web-based motion-tracking). I'm interested in making more code art as well as tools and educational content in this space! The dream is to convert something into a revenue stream that covers my basic living costs so I can keep learning and making fun stuff :)

    Hi everyone!
    I just joined IH. I've been an entrepreneur of a few failed projects. I started a blog that had, at its peak, about 20.000 readers. Then I shut it down, and few months ago I created its graveyard: tweaknology.org
    Two years ago I founded a startup in the blockchain business, with a nice up-front investment, but we could not manage to be profitable, so I left my position as a partner.
    Now I work as a community relations manager, and few months ago I started my personal website, jaack.me
    I understand that it's in Italian and it's not focused, but it lets me experiment with coding in a safe zone: it's a static, blazing fast website built on Jekyll with few SASS, and I'm so proud of it.

    I just discovered and joined the community tonight. I've been dabbling in WP sites for a couple years but I've decided that 2020 is the year to really dive in and build something. I just completed my Free Code Camp Javascript data structures and algorithms certificate today and I plan to keep on working on my Full Stack developer certification. I don't have my "big idea" right now but plan to keep building WP sites for local businesses in the meantime. This is actually my second act. I started building sites in 1994, the week Netscape went public! Did pretty well, enjoyed the dot com boom and then survived the subsequent bust, burnt out, became a carpenter and horse trainer..... I guess now I'm back! Looking forward to learning a lot and hopefully sharing what I can

    Hello everybody, I have been working on my side-project for a while now, and after a good year of testing out some ideas and half-baked prototypes, I finally have a great long-term design in mind which I would like to release in smaller stages. My goal is to bang out an MVP and see if this project is even something people would find useful, so I am excited to finally join this lovely community and make some progress towards that end.

    The project is essentially a personal task manager, with what I hope are some innovative ideas that will allow people to manage competing interests and priorities. It's really me scratching my own itch - I've used a lot of productivity software out there, and some of the features work great in isolation, but I have had a difficult time finding something that would help me manage my varied interests, analyze how I spend my time and work on what matters most to me at any given moment.

    As I mentioned before, I have a long term design that I've been working on which is fairly ambitious, but I think I am at a point of being ready and willing to narrow all of that down into something smaller that I can release, and which I can iterate on in the future.

    I am open to any advice along this road. Although I am a developer and have decent technical skills, I lack much in terms of business knowledge and I hope to learn a lot by opening up and bouncing my ideas off of of the Indie Hackers community.

    Hi, my name is Travis. I'm a banker by day and a budding small business owner by night. My one passion and labor of love is my company called Goombay Labs.

    Through our aromatherapy candle brand, and our developping skincare brands, I'm hoping to promote positive wellbeing, general happiness, and daily self care through aromatherapy and natural skin care.

    Due to circumstances I'm bootstrapping my venture so I'm eager to learn some savvy tactics to locate my niche audience, build my brands and audience, and tips on how to transition the business from part time hustle to full time venture.

    I'm a huge fan of open source software and my business runs on many. I'm excited to share and learn.

    Hey indiehackers!

    This is my first post on here :) I've actually been a member for about 3 months, reading posts and simply hiding in the shadows. But I finally decided to step out for a change because everyone here is so inspiring!

    I'm a full stack web developer that has been working for small companies for a few years now but can never shake off that entrepreneur animal inside me lol. So here are my goals:

    1. Launch my first MVP in 1 month
    2. Become a real member of indiehackers, and start providing helpful feedback to my fellow peeps on here :)

    Wish me luck!

    Hi there! My name is Dima and I'm kinda tired of being a "hired developer". I've been working as a C/C++ developer for almost 10 years already. Programming is still my passion. I enjoy writing code, I like technologies, crazy about studying something new. So, despite the fact that I'm a system-level programmer, it has never been a problem for me to write NodeJS-based backend, to extend it with a native C++ add-on, to add React front to everything and so on. However, couple of years ago I realized that staying at the same company at the same office is not something I dream about. At that time I understood that "programming as a passion" was slowly turning into "programming as a routine". I left my job and became a freelancer. I was very happy with my decision. Freelance gave me a feeling of being independent. I could plan my day as I like, could organize my office as I like, could work on projects I like. I have 3 stable customers with high rates by now which are happy with my work. However, now I realize that I'm in a trap. There is no way to grow for me. I can't physically add more customers already because there are only 24 hours a day. Moreover I've realized that I eventually turned my initial office job into 3 office jobs with flexible hours and without office building. So nothing has changed eventually. Just amount of work increased drastically:) But now I'm ready to change my life completely. I want to bring back that "programming as a passion" feeling. The feeling I have while working on my own projects. All I need is a project which can make a profit and which will be useful for other people. I really hope IH community will help me believe in myself and my ideas! Hence my final goal, obviously, is to become an indie hacker:)

    Hello!

    My name is Nick, and my day job is iOS Development. Been lurking on IH for a while, but I figured it is finally time to participate!

    My goal this year is to release my first ever side project. A journaling and meditation game for your mental health. I'm hoping to eventually turn it into a viable income stream, but at this point even just releasing an app and making $1+ from someone who isn't my mom/friend and learning a ton in the process is a goal in and of itself.

    I've already done all the paperwork to set up a business, but now it is time to actually make the app!

    Greetings Everyone,

    My name is Chris and I've been working on corporate web sites in different capacities for the past 20 years (analytics, testing, advertising, coding, strategy ,etc.). Now, I'm hoping to take one of my side-projects and build it into a small business.

    In the past, I've been a head down, do it alone kind of side-project developer. It's taken me a while but I'm trying to not do everything myself in hopes that this time I can find my way to launching a successful project. This community looks like a great place to start.

    I look forward to learning, sharing, and working with all of you.

    👋 My name is Michael Aubry (https://www.instagram.com/michaelaubry/) (https://twitter.com/michaelaubry) I live in San Diego, California. I would love to connect.

    I'm building a video editor tailored for digital marketers and agencies.

    I've built a data analytics software from scratch that is doing over $2,000,000 ARR during my time in San Francisco.

    Currently, for cash flow, I am working with an influencer couple who has 800,000 subscribers on Youtube and 500,000 on Instagram. I help them build software for their audience. We just launched a meal planning tool at the beginning of the month. So far we have hit $30,000 MRR.

    My goal is to get my product to that point in MRR. If anyone wants to chat, I'd love to share. I love listening to folks and learning how I can help them with creating social media content. If you have a product you're working on and want to be consistent with sharing, lets talk.

    Currently I'm working with Ruby/Rails/Posgresql for the backend/api and basic custom html/sass/javascript for my frontend but I'm learning Vue.js as well.
    My goal is to find a person/team to contribute too and feed off of. Excited to be here!

    Hi hackers,

    I am a product manager from Belarus. My core specialization is mobile apps development.
    I have a wife who dreams to travel the world just as me. So my aim for 2020 is to create my own startup which can be maintained remotely. Mobile apps are perfect for that.
    I have a 2 year experience as a BA and 2 year as a Product Manager. Not that much, but it is really my passion. I bet I can tell you something you don't know about mobile apps marketing.

    I believe that the real founder is not the guy who just came up with the idea. It is the one who grow it up and lead to success. So I can feel passion to other else's ideas just as to my own.
    Don't hesitate to contact me if you have one, or just want to code somethigh promising.

    Hi I’m Jesse Tomchak,

    And I am tired of the enterprise grind. Some call it the cube farm, the big ‘open office’ where everyone herds and checks emails all day, goes to a pile of unproductive meetings, and at the end of the week doesn’t much to show for it but a calendar of ‘follow-ups’ for the following week. I’ve worked at a couple startups between giants and really miss the direct line to the customer, being able to really feel the impact that my work has.

    I am sure a lot of people here have the same emotion, I want to build something that I’m proud of, that people use and enjoy, that gives me a personal sense of accomplishment.

    Hi, I am Abinash. I am a full-time Javascript developer. Side projects have always fascinated me; every month, I start one, but I could never ship it. So I am joining the awesome community of Indie Hackers, hoping that this vibrant community could help me in finally completing something.

    1. 1

      shipping something is barrier I’ve come up against time and time again. I haven’t conquered it either. I’m hoping the community here will inspire me to see it across the finish line too.

    Hi there!
    I joined Indie Hackers a couple of years ago, but I haven't really done much since joining. A couple of weeks ago I talked to someone in my area who I am planning to partner with on some projects.

    My goal for the next few months is to sell a spreadsheet that I am going to create to validate an idea we have for an app for students. If anyone at all buys the spreadsheet, that will probably be a good indicator that the idea has some legs. We're planning to do as much validation as we can on our way to creating our first product.

    Hey all!

    I'm a full-time Android developer who's been itching to launch something of my own. I've had a few side projects like I'm sure most here have, but never get to something ready for launch. Thought I'd finally get something done for 2020 and stumbled upon Indie Hackers!

    Currently working on a mobile app to help medical professionals manage outcome based measures digitally, and I have a small pre-alpha product to help automate invoice generation for time tracked through Toggl (and other time-tracking services).

    Hoping to engage more with other devs and non-devs!

    I'm Emmanuel, UK based wannabe polymath!

    I come from an Engineering background (I say come, but I'm just about to graduate from a Masters programme in a few months) and I like to focus my attention on things that are at the intersection of Business and Technology. I like to maintain a fair balance of critical analysis and freewheeling creativity. My interests vary widely, so I always strive to become very good, very quickly at any new things I try; although I'm still building simple Java apps since starting my coding journey two years ago.

    Today, at this moment, I've been thinking about the combination of Timesheets and Task Management and Invoicing and Word Processing, and why there aren't many 'simple' one-stop-shops that are ideal for freelancers or self proprietors or micro businesses (or maybe there are and I haven't looked hard enough?)

    So, that's how I'm focusing my IndieHacker journey, through the prism of 'how does all the great knowledge on this platform help me build this Work Productivity suite?' Looking forward to learning a lot in the coming time period!

    Hi there!

    I'm an engineer that decided to take the bootstrapped build-your-own-business path after graduating recently. With luck, good partners, and a ridiculous amount of hard work, I was able to finance my company enough such that I didn't need to find a job like all my friends. That said, there are numerous challenges that I'm getting acquainted with like uncertainty about product market fit, tough clients, lack of human resources, and working long hours. I'm hoping to learn a lot from this community and I'm already happy to see that I'm not alone on this journey!

    Hey, I'm a full-time software developer and entrepreneur by heart. I aim to build a product that people would love and I've actually tried few times, though with not much success, but every try is new learning so keep going

    Hi, my name is Novern. I'm a full stack programmer. My goal for 2020 is to kickstart a project that will be a second income. I've got some ideas, my biggest challenge is to get the product out there without trying to make it perfect and time. If that works I would like to start my own business.

    👋Hey, IHers! I'm Partical.

    I'm a full-time Front-end Engineer. I'm working on a Fin-Tech Startup. I

    Also, I'm preparing a new activity about People Interactive. I am going to hold an activity it's like long-term hackathon (1 or 2 months). Make different will co-working with more people. The interesting thing is, our system will shuffle team members each cycle.

    Before that, I built a small system - https://PersonalCard.Design for it. Hope people interactive will be more high quality and be offline.

    I am glad to here!! And really want to know more about every Indie Hackers!!

  180. 1

    I'm an entrepreneur with a technical background. I want to grow my first product Testbone and launch new side projects.

  181. 1

    I'm a college student looking to learn as much as I can. I've always had an entrepreneurial spirit and would like to continue to foster it.

  182. 1

    Hey there,

    My name is Jeromy and I'm a marketer and entrepreneur. I run a small marketing agency where I've gotten to do cool stuff like help take a client to #1 Global Viral on Spotify and work with some pretty large DTC brands particularly in the fashion space.

    These days branching out into ad tech with a product called Reverb Media where folks can buy podcast ads, Spotify ads, digital radio etc. On a self serve platform like they would Facebook or Google ads.

    Excited to both contribute and learn with the community.

  183. 1

    Im a Software engineer looking for inspiration to start projects of my own.

  184. 1

    Like many others here, I build things. Mostly software, and mostly on the web (backend, frontend, browser extensions, non-native mobile applications, etc..). I have spent 4 years working as a web developer in different startups, and around 10 on different personal projects to improve my technical skills.

    I would like to start a profitable side project to work on. My goal is not to make millions, but to generate several steady streams of smaller revenues (at least one? lol). And doing so through a technical product that can live with a minimum maintenance. I don't know if it's possible, but I am here hoping it is and to learn how to do it.

    More broadly, I am kind of bilingual (french-english). I practice martial arts. I am learning how to draw. I read a lot of fiction. I listen to a lot of podcasts and interviews about science, economy and politics.

    Nice to meet you!

    Hi! I'm Karan Veer! I heard about this site from a few creators of YouTube Channels. I had to finally check it out and see what IndieHackers is all about first hand. I'm a small-time Game Developer, who works on contracts and freelances. Also now aspiring to enter and try to share my little decade of XP and hopefully spark their interest in Coding, luring them via Games.
    First Language(s): C and C++ : 2010
    Current Language: Evolved to C# : 2016 - 2020(till date, actually, till death)...

    MY SUPER POWER: I will try to spark this generation's interest into coding leveraging the power of making from Hyper Casual to AAA game mechanics...let's be honest, if single guy went AAA he'd need 25 lifetimes...so let's just stick to mechanics and the cores...
    My Work to begin with: PUBG mechanics: Shooting () ..https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCq4_HSVjuryeYGCbI2b3QTQ

    MY WEAK POINT: Although I understand the idea and structure behind non gaming apps, I've not had much XP in the non gaming programming world..I tried, but it didn't spark my interest to keep going. Infact the first thing that I ever did after I got some handle on the structures and OOP Concepts, I opened my TurboC and tried to build FarmVille mechanics(it was the thing at that time [2010]). I never looked back.

    Anyhow, Looking forward to meeting you all and learning from your experiences as well, especially the guy/girl/they reading this, and care to comment on it so I can know! GG!

    Hi I'm Scott. I'm a software engineer and I have 3 products I'm currently working on where I have identified problems with current software/websites that could be solved with new applications to provide a better experience for people using them.

    Hi all,

    I just joined IH and I already love all the interviews and the resources available here. I'm on a mission to fully replace my job with income from internet businesses. I've been grinding for three years now, and I am as committed as ever. I had several failures but each time I'm learning and making advances and getting faster.

    I look forward to contribute to this tribe & feel at home with you guys.
    Peace!

    Hey all. I'm a 35yo Renaissance Man with expertise in almost all dimensions of business without my own business at the moment.

    I organized three communities:

    – 1st ever Facebook group about bitcoin
    – Slack for Russian-speaking creatives
    – air taxi infrastructure entrepreneurs

    I advise & help startups and businesses a lot, currently an advisor to a few.

    And I do almost everything at Upwork at the moment:
    research, writing, branding, design & development, community building, marketing, etc.

    I invested in a few startups and almost a hundred Kickstarter projects to understand their way of success or fail.

    Also, I failed with a few own startups and made a couple of art/fun projects.
    And I'm continuously generating business ideas.

    Now my goal is to create a successful product with a steady income.

    1. 2

      having the first group about bitcoin is something.

    Hello everyone. I’m a software developer who originally graduated as a designer. I'm currently working with Flutter and I’m here to look for inspiration for my next app.

  190. 1

    I've been a solopreneur long enough to realize that it takes small groups of very smart people to reach the highest echelons of accomplishment. A nonconformist by nature, there is nothing more I love than grassroots startups and creatively intelligent people making their own way in life. I'm here for community support, networking and to absorb as much information as I can.

    1. 1

      well then, you came to the right place...Hi there!

      1. 1

        I'm loving this place! Thank you. = )

    Hi there,

    I just joined because I'm literally starting my business adventure this week and I want to learn as much as possible to get going.

    I have a co-founder and we're researching our target industry. But we're finding it hard not to feel daunting and scary....but it's also a lot of fun..

    Hi, my name is Adrian, front-end developer working mostly with React. This year I want to build my own portfolio website and build a few projects on the side.

    I came here to connect with other like minded people, find inspiration and try to start something on my own because I am feeling a bit stuck at the moment.

    Entrepreneur at heart since 2004, when I dropped college to pursue the wrong thing. Been developing myself, my ideas and skills since. Decided in 2013 to pursue web development. Went through a hellish period of bad marriage and health issues. Now a single father, and making great progress in app development. I believe 100% in my ideas (realistically, at least 10 of my top 100 ideas should be viably profitable), as I've been writing them down, developing them, and observing them against the real world for about 15 years now.

    Currently working on a relatively simple game app. This will go out free (when it's ready) as a PWA. I will likely learn Flutter to make proper mobile versions. It's biggest role for me is still as a learning project. I will likely use it to learn about in-app purchases and the app economy, but more so I think I may re-write it from scratch and make a web development/app development course from it.

    Working in JS, Svelte/Sapper, also fond of Vue/Gridsome, and Python 3.

    Hi IH! I’m Censored (nickname) from The Netherlands. I’m a digital developer (frontend/backend/linux/arduino) working on a shift from project/based client work to scalable services/products. I’m already working on some things though balancing it all kicks me in the face from time to time 🙈
    I’ve just discovered IH and am wondering if this might be the box of pandora i was looking for :)
    Thanks for reading this and have a nice day!

    Hi, my name is Alistair. I'm a full stack web developer working for a medical company and ready to start a few projects of my own.

    I'm not sure yet what product or service I want to build but most likely some kind of niche CRM offered as a service. I work for a web design company on the side and a recent project got me thinking about it.

    Hi, I'm Sourav from India. I am working in a. Data entry related company. I'm working here from last two years. I am also enrolled in Y combinator SUS2020, and then I will launch my start-up or side project

  202. 1

    One year ago I was fat, about to be married with the woman I was dating for 9 years and making a decent amount of money at an extremely unsatisfying Corporate Finance job. My ex canceled the wedding and left me so I had a life with no responsibilities in front of me. I decided to make some additional changes in my life. Went to the gym, lost 10kg, quit my job and enrolled in a Data Analytics Bootcamp where I learned to program in Python and other data-related stuff.

    By the way I'm Jorge, 30, from Spain.

    Although I consider myself a total ignorant in terms of digital economy, I started to see how powerful it can be.

    I don't know what will I do to, but I am sure I want to be financially independent and stop wearing a suit and a tie, attending boring meetings, being at the office >12h daily, etc. I want to be my own boss, solve my own challenges and feel free. Let's see if I get inspired, but I am sure I will.

    Hey there! My name is Spencer. I'm a father to two little girls, and a full stack web developer and development manager by profession. I really enjoy developing projects on the side, and I'm looking to learn how to build a profitable business that might support my family one day.

    It's easy for me to code but I struggle to talk to potential customers and do sales. Looking to connect with other folks at a similar point in their journey, and learn from others who have different strengths. I'm also learning to be more transparent about my journey and talk about what I'm doing!

    Glad to join the IH community :)

    Hey! My name is Graham Bewley, I'm a web developer (mostly front-end) living in Michigan. Over the last few years, I've found myself "day-dreaming" about different potential business ideas, fleshing them out in my head, and working on developing my own web skills. Until I started listing to the IH podcast about 6 months ago, I considered starting a business to be a bit of a pipe-dream. I'm here now to make that dream a reality. I've got a few small ideas that I'd like to turn into big ideas.

    I'm Bouke, a freelance software developer and aspiring entrepreneur. Many of my ideas fail because they are too big, too fantastic or too new.

    This time I have another one :-)

    Anagon AI - The Open Source AI that respects your privacy. A free customizable alternative to Google Assistant, Alexa and Siri.

    The goal for 2020 is getting one hundred developers onboard to help build the AI's basic capabilities.

    Hope you'll follow along!

        Haha, ok, good one! My last project was creating a platform for crowdsourcing tabular data, backed by a version controlled database system, similar to how Github works. Actually, my focus was on the database system which fascinated me, but got stuck trying to figure out good use-cases for it and selling the idea.
