After thinking about it for a few days, I decided to start recording interviews with indie makers as a way to generate content for Quicktalks and try to get some traffic and opinions.
I reached out to a couple of indie makers I know from Twitter and some of them agreed to have a quick chat with me about their products and share some tips and lessons learned while building them.
I recorded the first interview with Felix Scholz (@scholz_felix on Twitter) and it was great! We talked about the fear of launching a product for the first time, benefits of building in public and how the indie community is always super supportive.
I plan to edit the interview this week while I keep reaching out to other makers for the next interviews.
If you want to share your history and a few tips that can be helpful to other makers, send me a message in the link below and we can have a quicktalk 😉
After the MVP, I received a few messages with some feedback on how to improve the copy of the landing page and some issues so I put I the 🚧 work in progress 🚧 on the site while I addressed everything.
After a couple of weeks changing most of the backend and improving the copy, I think this new version is way better and ready to use. I still have some features in my todo-list but the sooner it's out in the hands of the users, the better.
QuickTalks.io is live and I've even scheduled the first talk on it.
If you're like me and have an idea for a talk, don't be shy a schedule one! I've scheduled one about how I built QuickTalks and I'd be super grateful if you could attend, try QuickTalks and let me know how it goes!
I've been working on and off for two weeks and I think the MVP is ready. I even bougth a domain and the web is already live on quicktalks.io.
Next step is to share it with some of my Twitter contacts, friends and here on IndieHackers to get some feedback. If you're reading this, go ahead and take a look!.
Do you have an idea for a talk? Create it on QuickTalks!
I decided to build a project in just a few days. The idea is pretty simple: a place where users can share and schedule a talk.
It will be focused on talks for small audiences and it will use Google Calendar and Google Meet under the hood. Talks will be publicly available to browse but only authenticated users can create new talks or attend to one.
I'll build it with Firebase and Vue.js 🤘
Building a successful product takes time and a lot of effort. Getting real-life stories and first-hand experiences from other indie makers can help you learn valuable lessons you can apply to your products.
