🤩🤘🏽 Side Projects for Fun and Profit - 2018 Edition

by Adeel Ahmad | at MinneBar 13

This is a follow up to last year's popular session with new advice and updated slides. Here they are!

This took will be super fast-paced but fun and informative...

I'll go over things like:

  • why do a side project?

  • what if I don't have the coding skills?

  • how can I learn what I need to code?

  • how should an experienced coder approach side projects?

  • what if I don't have the money?

  • how do I get users?

  • how do I validate it?

  • how much time will this take?

  • what about XYZ myth that says I can't do this?

  • what about XYZ reason to keep procrastinating?

I'll also go over my own progress on projects since last Minnebar.
