One of my goals as a software developer is to build something in my spare time that others can use. Preferably some kind of online service.
I think this that this is something that a lot of developers and even non developers would like to achieve one day.
Since I still haven’t found something to build I keep looking online for what other people have built or launched.
I noticed on Medium that there are a lot of stories about how people launched their products. So I will add the first 10(almost the first 10) that I have found and then add a link for the search term at the end of the article.
