👩🏽‍💻🚀 Side Projects for Fun and Profit - 2019 Edition

by Adeel Ahmad | at MinneBar 14 | 1:55 – 2:40 in Theater | View Schedule

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.
