What I learned from Makers Up

2 min read

Seems like this is my first Post ever... Hello World! 👋

Maybe I should first introduce myself... I'm An, a 16yo student who loves to code in his freetime :) I thought myself how to code when I was 13 (basically I started with Scratch when I was 12, but that's no real coding, isn't it?). Back then I did some HTML and I was about to start with PHP. Afterwards I learned CSS and basic JavaScript. Today I can fluently code in HTML, PHP, CSS, JS, Java, C and a bunch of other languages like BASIC 😅. I already coded basic stuff in Python too (shout-out to my friend Peter 😉).

So as the Title of this Post suggests, I want to talk a little bit about Makers Up today. Makers Up is a News Source for Indie Makers. I discovered it a little over a Month ago and it sounded great. It was founded by Zachary and he was searching for volunteers to help him. I said yes. Honestly, I didn't had much freetime but I said I could help a bit. I enjoy being part of such a great team. We covered the 24hrstartup Callenge and I basically helped to tweet News every day. I met great people on Twitter back then (looking at you Sergio, Ethan, Kerr, Adith, Miguel and all of you others). It was fun! When we finally launched on 3rd of January we got over 300 upvotes on ProductHunt in the first 24 hours being #2 Product Of The Day 🤗

So what did I learn?

  1. Offer your help Seriously, even if you don't have much freetime: you can always help a little bit.

  2. Be friendly If you find something useful, just message the Maker a short "Thank you for this helpful Product! 🙌" and you made his/her day!

Thank you

This is for all of those who read this far: Thank you! 😀

So apparently this was my first Post - I hope you liked it! I'm planning to write as often as I can. Maybe about some more tech-related stuff too. If you want, you can always contact me on Twitter or Telegram.

Bye 👋
Stay healthy & keep coding!
