Finally started on a new exciting project for myself. That ticks a lot of boxes for me.

  • My wife likes the idea
  • I like the idea
  • It's reasonable in scope while still having challenge
  • It fills a need I've wanted
  • Saw people on the internet having the same need.

That's amazing! specially if the scope is reasonable.
One thing I do on my side projects is try to plan ahead and break each feature into small tasks. In that way, the remaining tasks seams easy to complete and reduce the friction to keep moving forward. Good luck!

So there are plenty of events apps. But I'm trying to build something out that doesn't require the people you invite to have to make an account to use it.

The use case in my mind really helps with non-profits and grassroots groups.

There are quite a few orgs that still use Facebook for their events. That's pretty gated. I would like to interact with them too but I don't want to use Facebook.

Most of these orgs also have a mailing list. So I would like to have these two be able to be combined. That way you can see info about the orgs events as well as be notified without ever making an account anywhere.

It also works for personal use. You might have a family outing. You have the family emails but not everyone is on one platform. Being able to send an email out with a private link to your event where you can have info and discussion all without having them ever make an account is really nice.

That would remove a lot of friction and makes a lot of sense, especially for people that aren't on Facebook. I suggest checking the eVite flow, they do something like that (not requiring log in) for RSVPs. Good luck :)
