In Courtland’s own words:
Greetings people of Hacker Noon!
I’m Courtland, the creator of Indie Hackers. In 2016 I was bored of working my job as a developer and itching to do something on my own. But I couldn’t find much online about building a profitable business as a developer, aside from raising money from VCs and doing the whole startup thing.
