How to come up with side project ideas 💡
Ryan Hoover

One of the best ways to come up with a side project is to talk to people outside your circle of influence. As hackers, marketers, product people – we often get insulated in our own worlds.

No doubt there is probably need for yet another JavaScript framework or a Chrome plugin for YouTube video downloader… But, the world is vast and most people don’t have access to the technical acumen of product builders.

Talk to the babysitter, handyman (or woman), your kid’s teacher, the guy that checks your electric meters. Find some problems they deal with that you might be able to solve with an app, a device, or a tool!
