This is the third year doing this talk and will be packed with new tips, project hacks, anecdotes and #realtalk to inspire you to start (and finish) that project.
This talk is always fast-paced, 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.
