From March 20th to March 29th, 2020, join me and the other entrepreneurial developers in this community in building a minimum viable product for your next software-as-a-service idea.
What is the Seven Day SaaS challenge?
The 7DSaaS challenge is a software development jam designed to help you, an entrepreneurially minded full-stack web developer, to build a fully-functional MVP for your next SaaS idea within a seven day period.
If you're serious about launching a successful SaaS, you should validate your current problem + solution hypothesis as quickly as possible, so you can either start making a profit or discard it and move on to the next product.
This challenge will help you do just that.
Why is this a thing?
I was planning for a week-long game jam, and realized I'd rather spend the time building a software startup and working towards financial independence.
As developers, the biggest challenge we face is figuring out how to avoid spending all of our time coding. Software is only 10% of what constitutes a successful SaaS, and the rest lies in finding a good problem, determining product-market fit, sales, and all of the other not-so-fun stuff that we like to pretend doesn't have to happen.
But it does have to happen. And I wanted a community to hold me accountable to only spending a week building my MVP, so that after doing the "fun stuff," I could be freed up to focus on what really mattered.
So... welcome to 7DSaaS – a jam for building a profitable software product.
But the 20th to the 29th is nine days!
Yep, you read that right. You get to pick the seven-day stretch that works best for you within those nine days. But you have to stick to those seven days – scout's honor.
Who are you, anyway?
Glad you asked! I'm a full-stack software developer and startup consultant based in Providence, RI. I've launched three non-software-related startups, and now I'm focusing on leveraging my developer skills to build a profitable SaaS.
