Launched, open beta!

Francisco Carriedo Scher @FCScher

Researched, talked with first early adopters, built prototypes that solved problems just to get feedback, saw some common pain points and decided to jump into development.

As I imagined, this was a whole project, where I had most of the expertise I needed (the hardest one to acquire, backend and API), but not all of it: UI/UX, legal paperwork, website development, marketing, promotion, copy writing...

Nothing you cannot do with time, effort and some Fiverr for the design parts where I honestly suck... lol

Let's see what is to come, but I definitely wanted to share this big milestone with the community and the podcast, who have been of great support throughout the process!

Check the result here, I would be happy to know what you think of it!

Cheers everyone!
