Alpha Complete

Joe Thomas @JT_io

I have just completed building out the alpha version of Realms Writer and I couldn't be happier. It features pretty solid approximations of all the functionality I want it to have alongside cross-platform support and an auto-updating function.

Big questions on the horizon now:

  1. When should I get this out to users for testing?
  2. What is the best way to get this to market?
  3. Do I need to get some investment? If so, how to get about it?

Thank goodness I stumbled across indie-hackers. This seems like a great supportive community where hopefully I can get some advice, while giving it where I can.

Can't wait!
