Let’s say you found an idea for a project. You started to do it, did the first MVP, received the first users, and realized that you could not support it anymore.
The reason can be anything. The project is not inspiring you anymore, you’ve found another idea, or maybe you don’t have enough time. Selling your side project is an excellent opportunity to make some money for the spent time and efforts. But how and where to sell it? How does it work? And how to receive money? Below you will find answers to all these questions.

“Oh, I heard you are a programmer. Can you help me to create a site?”
This question I receive a couple of times each year from photographers, trainers, writers, and artisans. And you know what? In 2021, you don’t need a website if you’re a creator of any kind.
I want to share this guide with people who don’t know how to promote or sell their products or services on the internet.
In most cases, Instagram is enough to show your work. It’s the best choice if you are a local photographer and you are looking for clients.

Two years ago, I decided to create a planning poker app. It’s a gamified estimation tool where the team can estimate future tasks like playing the game. I made it because most apps were auto-banned as gambling sites in a customer’s private network.
Later, I started to scale the project. I added different features: boards for online retrospectives, reports, multiple scrum masters support, chat, and many more.
After these years, I am so proud of the results and my experiences that I wanted to share what I learned with you. …
Almost any of them has the same issues while learning, so I decided to list them and talk about avoiding them.

Generating PDF files is one of the most used features in SaaS projects. I even saw people ask the Firebase team on Twitter to implement an extension for this functionality. In this tutorial, we will generate a PDF document using a Cloud Function. For saving money on cloud computation, we will store the file in Cloud Storage for Firebase.
Imagine you need to create an app that displays some places on the map around the user. Let’s say something like Foursquare or a banking app with nearby ATMs. The main feature of this app is geo querying. It’s when you can search for the objects in some radius around specific coordinates.
Google just announced some updates for Google Chrome on Android devices. One of the updates is Floom. It’s an amusing tool, which shows in augmented reality the hole through the Earth near you. So you can see what is on the other side of the planet from the place where you are standing right now.
I’m an Angular developer since the very firsts AngularJS versions. During this time, I had a chance to work and deliver projects of different sizes. And I always was satisfied with my primary framework selection. Today it’s still my favorite framework. Currently, I have three active, long-term, and heavy-loaded projects. So let me share the most frequent traps on such projects and how to deal with them.
Let’s say you work with an extensive application. And you need to provide some widgets, which represent some parts of your app to other apps. Developers can write these apps on any framework, so your widgets should be framework-agnostic. What technology stack will you choose?
As for me, the first that comes to mind when I hear “framework-agnostic” — web components. We can implement them in vanilla js way or use libraries to simplify the developer’s life. In this story, I will share why we decided to use LitElement.
