As a writer, it used to be that everyone I came across would want me to hear about the book idea they’d been carrying around in their head for years. Now, when I mention that I write about technology and the Internet, I’m far more likely to hear about an individual’s app idea.
I tell would-be Internet entrepreneurs the same thing that I used to tell closet writers: get to work. Actually following through on an idea proves to be the barrier that prevents 90% of people with dreams of online success from getting started. For those that will not be denied, paying developers or the real work that goes into building (even with free tools) slams the door shut.
I prefer to encourage rather than discourage, so, startup warriors, let me throw another option at you if you’re looking to build something but find yourself stuck.
Codester is a marketplace where you can “buy and sell ready-to-use web development components. This includes PHP scripts, app source code, themes, templates, WordPress plugins and more.”
Codester is a much more affordable option than paying a developer, but much faster and less labor intensive than trying to do everything on your own. Development can take years, trying to learn how to do everything/assemble/test as you go. Who has the time or energy for that? Founders that never sleep, work multiple jobs, and operate under constant threat of running themselves into the ground early, that’s who.
With Codester, founders can find missing app and website pieces without breaking the bank. Plus, they already function properly! As satisfying as it might be to reinvent the wheel, you’d be hard pressed to convince anyone that your time couldn’t be spent on other projects. Nab what you need at Codester, and move on to the next task because, trust me, there will always be more.
Developers and designers win with Codester by having a destination to make their work available to a huge audience. For those that prefer to create rather than sell or look for clients, Codester lets them focus on making great components. The marketplace spares them from needing to set up a storefront, hunting for work on freelance platforms, or sharing their brilliance with just one employer.
Instead of those hustles, developers and designers can sell their tools with minimal effort on Codester, and keep on creating amazing tools, as they please. Greater freedom and quickened progress for all involved.
