1⃣ I’ve written a 5-pager marketing plan for the prelaunch phase of the startup, which covers the basics but also has room for improvement. Here is a summary of what I covered:

I started by doing keyword research using Moz and Google Trends.

#buildinpublic
The development of the app is started now & we set a soft deadline by October for launching the beta version. There's so much to be done. The first thing would be to write a marketing plan for the prelaunch phase & implement it. That's on my agenda for this week.

#buildinpublic
This week, we are going to have some interviews with those interested in mental growth about the app idea. Interested? Drop me a line. :)

#buildinpublic #Mindfulness
After thinking more in detail about the app, we have come to realize it has the potential to be generic. We are recategorizing it as a 'life reminder', a reminder for living a life with intention. It now includes mindfulness as one part of it.

#buildinpublic
We are having solid progress in our app project. The design is almost finalized, after many revisions and now we are working on the landing page and a video presentation of the app to next introduce it to our users.

Exciting times are finally coming.

#buildinpublic
4 pages of thinking and drafting the scheduling algorithm of the app boiled down into only 2 formulas.

Hopefully tests show if simplicity is the best option in this case or not, before starting the implementation.

Day 89 of #100DaysOfCode :

I started learning about CUDA and parallel processing in Python. Only scratched the surface as I don't have much knowledge in that area & needed to go slowly.

Also continued prototyping in Figma, & got the basic functionalities ready.

#buildinpublic
So, recently I had the app project on hold because I was building a team. 2 people have joined me. One is a developer, & the other is mainly the project manager but like me, has a more fluid role in this.

& so the building has restarted.

#buildinpublic #startup
Nothing to show yet, it’s going under so many revisions atm, but something is taking shape underneath and eventually sprouts, hopefully soon.

In the middle of working with Sketch, I got confused & switched to Figma. Neither was easy enough to work intuitively with. I need to read some docs I guess. Which one do you recommend I go with?

Day 45 of #100DaysOfCode :

I spent all day on my app & figured out how to set several random notifications. The only thing is, they run through a loop & only the last notification actually triggers. I cannot work anymore on it today, but I am eager to solve it.

Day 41 of #100DaysOfCode:

I spent half of today fine-tuning a CNN model & I finally ran it without overfitting.
In the second part of the day, I learned about Calendar, Date, & Date components in Swift. There's still a lot to learn, but I'm getting there.

#buildinpublic
Day 40 of #100DaysOfCode:

Today I worked mostly on paper to think about the possible solutions for the timing of my app. It was hard & I think a genius solution is still out there waiting to be found. But, I progressed well enough to call it a day.

#buildinpublic
Day 39 of #100DaysOfCode:

Worked on my app project today. Fixed a problem with segues that I figured out after a few hours of trying different things. But now I realize some part of the logic of the app is flawed and am trying to fix it efficiently.

#buildinpublic
Thanks to @elemntor & the free addons that complement it, design-wise I think it’s basically finished and now the content should be refined.

Day 36 of #100DaysOfCode:

I worked mostly on a python code today.
As for the app project, I built the landing page, designed a rather minimal logo & wrote some copies. There's still a long way to go, though.

One step at a time, it's taking shape.

#buildinpublic #womenintech
But it's only an MVP, & if my subpar coding skills can deliver the minimum functionality I want, until finding out whether there is a potential userbase, then all is good. What do you think?

#buildinpublic #startup
I got to create a simple opt-in form that finally delivered what I wanted to. But there are no design elements on the page & no content either.

Since I spent most of today on that, I decided that should mark the end of my work for today.

I bought a host to create a landing page for my app. I’m struggling with customizing the theme as I don’t have prior experience with that. If someone has a good resource for Wordpress website customization (& design) to learn from, please share :)

Day 33 of #100DaysOfCode:

I progressed in learning Keras & played with some sample codes.

I did some exciting startup-related things as well, which I'll announce next week:)
