Hello everyone - Know it's been a hectic two weeks, but I know I am a bit behind on publishing here. With that said, I am immersing myself in On Deck No-Code and have learned and grown a ton in a short amount of time. KP challenged the group to ship one "dumb" app - an app with limited functionality, built on a no-code platform (Softr, Rows, or Xano).
My biggest frustration early on was not having any ideas that I thought were worthwhile to work on. After days of wrangling my brain, I realized that the problem was a viable solution.
I was able to ship v1 last week and frankly did feel a bit embarrassed with how much I thought needed to be done (which is a good indicator).
Here is what the MVP is supposed to do for users:
- Allow people to submit their own problems to determine if there is a true need to solve their problems.
- Give people an opportunity to explore and upvote problems that they believe are issues in their own lives.
Items to think about (my own and sourced from the ODNC2 community:
- The point of hitting a critical mass of content of Q&A’s on the site (huge SEO benefit à la Quora)
- An opportunity for the I’d pay X for this (a Zaarly for not immediate local requests). If a solution exists, people will link to it. If not, it validates the problem, and people will create solutions.
- A paradigm focus on ideas to real problems - a reason why most people don't succeed. Validation is needed.
