What you'll learn
There you are, enjoying a hobby that you love, which gets you away from your screens and keyboard. Then, out of nowhere, an idea comes to mind. Maybe it is spurred by a problem that you encountered or a way that you could improve on a technique, you pull from your experiences, and decide to start a new project that helps to scratch that itch. Of course, since you are a tech professional, you find yourself building these solutions with the technologies we know, or wish to learn more about. In this talk, Joel Byler discusses the following questions: How do you get started? What do you do when you're not sure whether your users will like it? How do you do this on your own? How do you avoid burnout? Joel also intends to help folks who have these ideas and get stuck.
