Shipped the MVP

KP @trulykp

I finished putting the final touches and shipped the MVP on Monday Oct 21st 2019 to a bunch of friends and fellow makers on Twitter.

Got really encouraging feedback from people who either loved the landing page, clean simple design or the idea itself. I wrote a Twitter thread explaining my 16 step manual (Do things that don't scale!) way of updating the data on the site and a few developers offered interesting insights on how to automate some of the work.

I wrote a blog post on how the launch went and snippets of feedback/support received from the community. (link below)
