MVP Reached

alexoverend

It's been nearly a year since I started learning to be a full stack web developer using the free online bootcamp The Odin Project. It has been very hard to get this far but I have finally actually made a non trivial web application.

To be honest the project should have been done over a month ago. It was functional and accepting payments, however my front end skills are not were they need to be. As a result I spent so long fighting with templates and CSS that I don't even know how to look at the design of the site objectively anymore.

I am hoping that I can get some good feedback on the design from my peers here on Indie Hackers. Other than that, I am going to start actively promoting the site this week.

I have low expectations for the project and therefore any small wins will be cherished. If I can manage to get a few subscribers in my first month or two I will be over the moon.
