Hello my co-founder Dzmitry and I made https://dropconfig.com.
Ask me anything about making a product, what tools we use, what our stack is or how to use DropConfig.

Hey Clay, just wanted to ask that, did you have any moments when you thought "Should we even be doing this?" (I get demotivated midway in projects and end up leaving them, wanted to have other's perspective on it)

Oh totally. I have that idea litteraly every week! We're still trying to gain more traction in the market so it's always there.

One thing that helps me is it's still fun! I like building for DropConfig. The challenges are fun and it's still interesting to me.
I think that's a big aspect.

But also sometimes you do have to know when to quit. And think: Okay I don't love this idea and it's not longer fun either.
You didn't waste your time you learned a lot! And maybe the next idea you have will get more attention and you'll love it more.

Final thing is getting together the core idea. Not getting distracted going off into other paths initially until you have something to show people. An MVP. Then you can reassess where you're at after some feedback

Hi, I'm wondering what made you decide to found a company, how did you get started and how do you choose what tech stack to use?

Well the thing we wanted to make didn't exist. At least not a form we liked. That's the big reason for starting DropConfig.

We got started by just coming up with a rough idea of what how we wanted it to work. I firmly believe that having a big detailed plan is a water of time. You need to be able to react to changes and new information.

We chose technology that we knew and what we could do quickly. I have Node.js and react experience so we did that to be fast. We could have gone with any number of technologies and that'd be fine.
