Looking back on 2022, I learned valuable lessons that helped me become wiser.

Creating a 2022 lessons thread to look back in the future.

I'll keep adding to it over the next 2 weeks 🗓

What's the most essential building block of a landing page trying to validate ideas with potential customers?

Day 7 of #BuildInPublic

Gloomy weather all day, but at least the team did well #ItsComingHome 🤞🏼

Beautiful Sunday with the kiddies 🥰

But no rest for the wicked 😜

If there was ever a must read for the #buildinpublic movement, it is this book!

"Make stuff you love and talk about stuff you love, and you'll attract people who love that kind of stuff. It's that simple."

This is the most beautiful definition of #BuildInPublic I have seen thus far ❤
Day 5 of #BuildInPublic


• Two user interviews. I spoke about both UKVCs and Microjournal and received more interest in the latter 🤔
• Pushing landing page copy to the weekend
• Exploring multi-user apps on @softr_io; custom styling is a challenge.

@100daysnocode 2/4

⚠ Not convinced that the current feature set is a painkiller problem 😐

⚠ Need to think carefully about the scope to complete in 3.5 weeks

🔹Idea of creating a public #buildinpublic journal is also appealing. Test the waters with fellow nocoders 🤔


Day 4 of #BuildInPublic with @100daysnocode Bootcamp


🔹1 User interview. Matchmaking, founder-investor fit and thesis, big concern 🤔

🔸Landing page copy in progress, interesting discussions and insights on slack on the topic, timely

@100daysnocode 2/3


✅No session, refreshing API concepts

🔸API assignment pending, will tackle tomorrow

🔸Excited to use APIs w #NoCode, new ideas emerge 🤯
