Just be careful when validating an idea with the #buildinpublic community. πŸ‘‡πŸ»
As wonderful as it is, peeps. are often a little bit too supportive.
Make it clear that you welcome constructive criticism, otherwise people tend to feedback only the good stuff.
Validating your SaaS idea is simply verifying that you're not building something no one cares about.

If you get some initial interest - great!

But don't consider that a guarantee.
Everything is still incredibly uncertain past that point.
A controversial topic in the Indie world... but I'm very thankful to have tests covering all my API endpoints logic. πŸ™πŸ»

I haven't worked on the API in a while and it's refreshing to know I'm not breaking anything, hopefully... πŸ˜…

Strong coffee to start the day β˜•οΈ

Do you want to meet local #buildinpublic folks for a β˜•οΈ?

Find people by country/city and inscribe yourself:
I've looped back round to automated server provisioning w/ @ansible ready to host my marketing site πŸ™‚

It's just a one pager for now but it explains what it is, the problem it solves and I'm hoping it'll spark a little excitement.

Agency work finished for the week - time to get back to building! πŸ₯³

I've been very slack with keeping up with my updates but I've been v. busy behind the scenes (+ COVID got me for a couple of weeks) πŸ™‚

Hope everyone's having a good week!

What are you working on?

@robertodigital_ "Half, not half-assed" as the saying goes. (HT @dhh and @jasonfried)

It doesn't have to be perfect, but you should be proud to put your name on any product you release.
Boo 😞 COVID took me out for ~two weeks.
The one thing I wasn't prepared for was the hit on my mental health.
Feeling a bit lost/trying to work out where I left off re. my SaaS 😿
@mjwhansen This πŸ˜‚
I’m laid up on the sofa but I’m itching to do some work πŸ₯Ά

Never underestimate the power of a simple gesture
French TV show invited people with unusual laughs to sit together….. the outcome is fucking brilliant. πŸ˜‚
Manage user permissions and roles

Filters, sorting etc.

@spatie_be I haven’t forgotten your postcard!

Am I right to be switching away from Next.js to Create React App (with React Router) for a static SPA please?

Re. static - I don’t want to get involved with Node.js hosting… 🫣

Eep, I've been a bit quiet! Busy behind the scenes 🫣 Will share some updates soon. πŸ™‚

Hope all you Indie creators out there have had a productive week.

What have you been working on?

Me learning the ropes in React/Next.js (TypeScript).πŸ€ͺ
Jokes aside, the beginnings of the SPA are starting to take shape.πŸ™‚
@ThePeterMick Hi Peter,
I’m Mike πŸ‘‹πŸ» (new follower here!), I've been an agency web developer for many years and I’ve recently dropped down to part-time hours to give things a go for myself, sharing my journey and learnings along the way.
I’m also here to make friends. πŸ™‚

Today marks the end of my first β€œofficial” month of indie life.
Happy despite progress feeling slow - slightly overwhelmed by the sheer amount there is to do working independently!
Excited for the months to come. πŸ₯³
