Episode details

I'm working on a new SaaS, and I'm sharing the journey from day one.

Today, I'll introduce you to my market, early tech stack choices, the financials of the business, and how I am setting deadlines to make sure I don't over-engineer the whole thing.

Say hello to https://podline.fm, my newest project! A voice messaging system that focuses on podcasters who need to manage significant amounts of audio messages.

Step by step, I'll take you along the journey of idea, market validation, budget analysis, tech selection, and early implementation challenges. If you want to follow a seasoned developer along the path of building a profitable software business, this is a great place to start. Oh, and I'll share just how impactful AI tooling has been for my first week of prototyping!
