Does anybody else use 'TRUNCATE table' often during development because you don't like a messy database and want your test ids to start at 1...

just me....OK, you can consider this my public confession that I have a bit of OCD.

Close to wrapping things up: NumbersQ.com. Realized I needed encryption on some db fields before launch (instead of after launch) so everything got set back a bit.

✅ Encryption

As long as I don't think of anything else, should be on final stretch😀

The more you develop, the more you realize you need to do.

What is your best launch day secret? (My goal, assuming I can get some final items wrapped up, is to launch startup #1 sometime tomorrow.)

#QThursday #BuildInPublic #Startups #12s12m
The original scheduled launch for Startup 1 was Wednesday, July 27th. I'm still working through some things and need to push back the launch a couple days to Friday, July 29th.

DashboardQ - Update #2 - Twitter Trouble

Finding out your Twitter account is being reply deboosted was a rough way to start off my Twitter marketing journey.

Fighting with the Stripe API. Building a custom subscription system to save cards & charge later. API has changed since I last used it, trying to understand the SetupIntents that isn't explained well in docs. Found example repo which helps. #BuildInPublic

Yesterday spent time following new people here. It takes a lot of time to get started with Twitter! Also wrapped up a blog post that I'll be posting next week.

The weekend focus is on development. Launch day for Startup #1 is coming up quick on Wed, July 27th!

Finding out replies are deboosted is a rough way to start your Twitter journey.

Yesterday, posted my first long thread (20 tweets). Then I replied to a few people I didn't follow and then realized my tweets were showing up underneath the "show offensive" button.

@mmmykolas My win today was that I sent out my first ever Twitter thread giving an update on my #BuildInPublic status.

DashboardQ - Update #1

From time to time, I plan to post updates about my "12 Startups in 12 Months (Open Source Edition)" journey to Twitter and IndieHackers. I plan to use my blog for more long form, general updates.

I'm planning to do these updates as often as I can. I think it helps to see a journal of other peoples' journeys when you are planning your own startup.

I like to celebrate the small wins. Eventually those small wins will become big wins.

My follower count has moved from 1 digit to 2 digits!
