Welcome to Indie Hackers! (Week of Jul 18th)

Channing here from Indie Hackers. Welcome! 👋

Here's how to get the most out your time here.

Make the community a better place

Indie Hackers is for connecting with like-minded people who want to build profitable online businesses.

To get the most out of the community, try helping to make it a better place. You can do that by starting and participating in interesting discussions.

If you start by giving, the community is designed to reward you in return.

How to start discussions

Head over to the home page and click the "New Post" button.

If there's something on your mind that you think will get people talking, simply type it out. The shorter the better. It helps if you ask a clear question in the title, or if you express your opinion.

Alternatively, if you read something elsewhere on the internet, you can start a discussion around that, too. Try submitting it as a link post. Indie hackers love discovering interesting new articles.

Good luck!

This is just the tip of the iceberg. If you need help submitting your first link post or starting your first discussion, let me know in the comments below.

Otherwise, I'm excited to see you the forum! Feel free to introduce yourself to everyone below. 🤗

    Hi all! 👋

    I’m a newbie in the tech world, but in my first year working in the industry, I have met people from all kinds of backgrounds.🤓

    That being said, I’m still curious about how much diversity we can find in today’s tech workplaces? And how do you all identify within those spaces?

    It’s why I’m conducting a study on the issue of diversity in tech, and it would be great to have your input. You can help by answering a short survey here 👉 https://6w7dn73eaqa.typeform.com/to/KhNcWN0T

    I will, of course, share the results with the community after the study is finished.

    Thank you!

    I needed to get a loan to buy a house but my poor credit hindered me from getting approved for any type of loan. I came across a comment on Craigs about this programmer that has helped a lot of people get their credit straight quickly and I reached out to him. He got my necessary info and within 3 weeks all the negatives on my report were expunged permanently. My FICO score was increased to 810 and finally got approved for a loan. If you also need help with your credit I suggest you contact : [email protected]

    Hello everyone!

    I'm an artificial intelligence enthusiast with a software engineering background.

    When I began my studies in software engineering, the thing that I liked the most was the seemingly infinite amount of systems/products/things that can be built. During my academic years I experimented with building mainly mobile apps, websites and machine learning models: I strongly developed my "building" skills, leaving far behind my "selling" skills. Reading online tutorials about building anything was a strong habit of mine. I always loved to help friends and classmates in learning course materials and, maybe more than everything, in keeping them motivated to do so: few things bring me more joy than seeing people have success, thanks to their hard work, in something they have struggled before.

    After I finished my studies, I worked as a machine learning engineer for two small companies (one of which was a startup and I began on day one) and catching all the opportunities I had to learn more about how businesses work. Both of them are great places to work and I've met very interesting people who taught me a lot and to whom I'm grateful. However, over time I started to feel a lack of motivation from myself as I felt I was contributing to an industry of which I cared little. I realised I wanted to contribute to something I truly care, something that I enjoy doing, something like helping other people staying motivated and learning things :)

    Now that I feel I've caught up with my lack of "selling" skills, I want to start a side hustle that may bring me more personal satisfaction in the future.

    I'm planning to build a product that uses gamification techniques to keep motivated its users in learning new things online, using machine learning techniques to automatically classify into categories what the user is learning. Imagine you read an article about Blockchain and you get 50 Blockchain points, and it shows you that you are 300 points shy of your 1000 Blockchain points weekly goal. It can be seen as Habitica + Pocket + Artificial Intelligence.

    I'll share my progresses here in IH and I'm very happy to join this community :)

    I have been lurking on the Indie Hackers website for a long time now, so I decided it is the right time to hop into the discussion and share some value with everyone here!

    Hi everyone. I am a recent graduate and I am very interested in starting my own online business. I hope I can learn a lot from this community and will find friends to help me along this journey.

  19. 1

    Hey all, product/ux designer here (so many silly job titles in this field).

    Had an idea for a problem I was struggling to solve in a user friendly way, so I started developing my own solution. Only problem is my skills are completely designed focused. I knew HTML and CSS back before all the improvements (HTML5, LESS, just read about Tailwind for the first time today).

    So I decided to refresh on some coding and took up learning Flutter & Dart. Getting that under my belt while learning how to market/grow a small SaaS in the meantime. Big goals, probably not very efficient, but I do love the challenge.

  20. 1

    Thank you i will Learn alot here.

    Hey, y'all!

    I'm Fatu. Excited to be here and to connect with folks who are building the future.

    I launched a newsletter called Big Tech This Week (https://www.getrevue.co/profile/BigTechThisWeek) a month ago, with an engaged audience and a 58% open rate 💃🏽. Eager to learn from fellow indie hackers. Let's get it!

  28. 1

    Hi everyone! :)

    I've been following the community for years now, and finally had the courage to leave the shadow and the comfort of my cubicle office to start my own venture. Building a B2B platform to assist SMBs and startups to navigate the complex decision making process of hiring a CFO.

    After spending a decade in the financial services (investment banking & advisory) industry and even being a CFO of a fast growing startup myself, I think I developed a good grasp of "dos and don'ts" that could be helpful for a lot of business owners out there and avoid making expensive mistakes of hiring a CFO too fast (or too slow).

    Can't wait to share this journey with this fantastic community!


  29. 1

    The past 12 months have been a roller coaster to say the least. I hung up my uniform as a Marine Corps Captain and decided to pursue my greatest passion: software and entrepreneurship.

    I am currently sharpening my skills as a Software Engineer & wrapping up work as a Program Manager (of sorts) for a successful Tech Founder in the Bay Area as he worked on multiple varying projects (hospitality, cryptographic designs, media).

    I was introduced to this community by an old friend from college. I am over the top to find a gathering of awesome people and I am looking forward to learning and 'hopefully' pairing with others to turn a passion project into a real business.

    So there in itself is my goal: "In the next 6 months, create a viable MVP of a current social media idea, create a business & launch plan, and attempt to make a fledgling business."

    Look forward to pursuing this together.

    Hello, my name is Leo.

    Last year I officially parted ways from previous career of sales for exotic cars and rentals. I have spent that past almost year now dedicating all of time and effort to becoming a self taught full stack developer.

    In the past I had tried to learn programming, but like many fell off for any number of reasons. Each time though I had gotten a little further. This time it is my sole dedication and I have now progressed much farther than I had thought possible in the past.

    My goal now is to get hired using the skills I have learned. I have spent this past year in the Microsoft ecosystem using C#, .net, asp.net framework and core. In my first major project I also learned docker and Kubernetes to deploy my app. Now I am transitioning to the JS world, more particularly Typescript.

    To help me learn a new technology stack I will be creating a website for find part-time positions for developers.

    My goal is to get the website up and running as fast as possible while learning a new stack and try to reach any profitability from the site, even if it's just $1.

    Hey Indiehackers,
    My name is Ali Irtaza. I'm a final year Computer Science student. I've been actively learning about the ecom business for 6 months now. I want to launch a private-label business that later in the future I can flip and make wealth out of it. My primary goal is to build a profitable e-commerce business. Because as much as I want to build a business, I also want a business that consumes less of my daily hours. I want automation in my business and the most important of em all is peace of mind. I hope using this platform I can partner with someone who also wants to build a profitable business that can potentially make millions of dollars in the future. Coz dream big, dream comes ture.

    Good day! This is Z. I have been thinking about launching my own projects for years. Tried a few but none of them survived, here are few examples:

    • tried to build a social network in 2011, but it's hard to get the network effect to make it grow.
    • tried to build a Quora-like website but for students who wants to study abroad, couldn't make it grow.

    Currently I am working on a small Google Sheet addon to get cryptocurrency price quote, hopefully it will last longer than previous ones :D

    Hi i am bob and build 3 failed statup

    Now the point is I am totally negative, depressed and thinking about leaving my IH dreams plus I am really out of ideas or more previously problems which I faced

    So yeh I am here let's see🔬🔬🔬

    1. 1

      If it's a dream, why give up? I like to think you're always going to have setbacks, believe me I've had them. But I still want to make something that makes a mark. I always thought the Pieter Levels approach of working on many projects over a series of months a good way to get motivation. May help. I'm Anders btw, nice to meet ya.

      1. 1

        Hey thanks, but what happens with me that I have no problems sounds "really" and if try to build something energy is 100% initially but soon I realised so many good stuff similar to what I am trying to build already exists i just drop off the project entirely and thanks for your suggestions
