How Developers Can Build a Product That Sells | Advice From UX and Product Leaders


I can't emphasize enough how valuable software engineers are. When I polled my community, 91% of you said that you would love to build a side project that made you additional income or even replaced your full-time job. Sometimes developers can develop the habit of jumping into the code too quickly (me included). I brought on leaders in the UX and Product space to share how they would go about validating an idea and building out an MVP with features that actually provide value to users. Even if you're an aspiring developer that's just struggling to come up with project ideas, we went over some ways to help you do that.
