Hello Indie Hackers👋,
The devmates.co hit 1000 users. It’s a special moment for me. Thanks, everyone for the support.
Below I’ve shared some thoughts which helped me do it.
🐣 Start small
When I start working on something I have a lot of ideas and awesome features in my head. But the trick is to start small. Don’t try to automate everything or build a complex system from the beginning. Just try to resolve the user’s problem immediately.
🚀 Provide real value.
Try to resolve some problem. With this product, I’m resolving my own problem - preparing for the coding interviews. I’ve received a few invites to FAANGs interviews. When I start preparing for this I realized that coding interviews doesn’t correlate with the real job at all.
Сoding interviewing - it's a skill which you should develop. I’ve started searching and resolving problems which were asked by companies. To be more accountable on this process I decide to do it together with someone. I made a newsletter from this and now we solve these problems together
