This project was more about the process and execution, and less about the idea itself. It was my first time taking the Startup School course, attending group sessions, getting feedback about the idea, and talking to users… all before writing a single line of code. Usually I start with code šŸ™ƒ. I learned a lot this way, like how to really focus on the problem and the why.
