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.
