An Overview of our PH Launch for AskMakers v2.0

Kitze launched AskMakers 2.0 on Product Hunt and has been monitoring it almost without sleeping. The first version of it was launched about 10 months ago. It got over 100 upvotes within 24 hours for the first time. It took 10 months to add more features to launch, and I felt like I can never launch it…I should not try to be perfect. The comments feature is very important, therefore I added the commenting feature! You receive an email notification when you receive an answer, an upvote on your answer, your answer gets bookmarked, or someone comments on your answers.

Oh…I am so sleepy…because I launched AskMakers 2.0 on Product Hunt and I have been monitoring it almost without sleeping😪

The first version of it was launched about 10 months ago.
I worked so hard on it and it got over 100 upvotes within 24 hours for the first time🤩To make an app useful, I sent emails to ask successful makers to join AskMakers.
I am nobody, just a software developer from Tokyo (currently in Vancouver), however, some of them signed up on and support it!! Unbelievable🤯

Thank you JustinHariAmieJonathan, and Jaime😆

After that, it took 10 months until the launch of 2.0…
I always thought like I need to add more features to launch, and I felt like I can never launch it…I should not try to be perfect.

This post pushed my back very hard.
The saddest “Just Ship It” story ever | by Kitze | Jun, 2020 | Medium

Eventually, I decide to launch AskMakers 2.0!

BTW, it’s live on Product Hunt.

🛠 New stack

I know most users don’t care what kind of technology the product use but…yeah, I just did.
・Next.js for SSR
・Totally new design with Tailwind CSS
I used to use Nuxt.js and Bulma for AskMakers, but I wanted to make SSR and use React, so I chose Next.js.

🎨 Renewed UI

I have worked so hard to make it better for users to browse AskMakers.
I am not a designer so I did research, learned, and applied my new knowledge to AskMakers.

When I sent an email to @dinkydani21 about AskMakers, she told me the categories and search functionality are absolutely necessary for AskMakers.
I agree! What kind of web applications like this doesn’t have these functionalities?
I wrote a code and implemented it ASAP.
Thank you for the kind feedback @dinkydani21 😊
