Launched on Hacker News! 209 upvotes! #4 position

Beto @natzar

I wrote an article about airovic.com and pushed it to hacker news.

It's cool because I teach how to scrape content using your browser only. After explaining the concept with practical examples I introduce my tool.

Seems it was perfect timing, because it's my first time getting more than 2 upvotes! Airovic recieved 209 upvotes! It's still in first page. It reached #4 position.

It's cool because I just was trying to get some feedback, because I was spending a lot of time with that article. And I thought that maybe no one is interested in Scraping, but it seems that is not the case.

Thanks to HN I learnt, that my tool is competing with Selenium. And that I need to focus on regular users, not just developers or tech people.

    I read somewhere that if you are not ashamed of your MVP then you launched too late. This is why this MVP still has wet paint that needs to be dried,
