Hello all! Here is the second installment in my weekly debrief on the Startup in a Month project. https://startupinamonth.net/month-one-week-two/ I've had a lot of community members from Slack and Reddit join me in the stream already, and it's been a lot of fun to have you around! I'll be streaming tomorrow and all next week if you want to join me, check the blog for a link to Twitch/YouTube.
I love these summaries! About letting a problem sit, this talk is a great talk that's related, by Rich Hickey (creator of Clojure, but I suppose you know that). https://youtu.be/f84n5oFoZBc
If you haven't watched any of his talks, they're very enlightening, in my experience, and you can find a lot more of them here: https://github.com/tallesl/Rich-Hickey-fanclub. But, I don't want to distract you from the startups 😄, just something for later if you're so inclined.
I loved Hammock Driven Development, I can't believe I forgot to include a link to it in that section of the blog. Especially nowadays where we've all got our noses endlessly pointed at the Here and the Now, it's such an appealing idea that some problems are best left to simmer for a while. Possibly a long time. I'm a big fan of Simple Made Easy too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oytL881p-nQ. Seeing this obviously incredibly smart guy talk about the limitations of your mind and how you need to work in such a way that you keep things simple and understandable was a big breath of fresh air.
