WeightLess Postmortem

January 17, 2020


I just launched v1.0 of WeightLess today after 3 days of working on it, and I thought I'd reflect!

This was the first app where I had a Figma design first before diving into code, which was epic! Knowing where you're going makes it much faster to get there.

A lot of the code is directly ripped from another similar project, so the process went by super quick since I had experience.

There's a lot more I wanted to add, but in the spirit of quick iteration/feedback, I released an MVP. This was great because I got super useful and actionable feature requests I hadn't thought of!

Tip: leave every day on an interesting solvable problem for the next morning, so the activation energy to get back in is low
