June 22nd, 2022
Our first ever meeting! Side Project Side launched June 22nd, 2022. We were lucky enough to have 15 people show up.
During the meeting, we focused a lot on what our audience wanted to gain from our group. We, the founders, have a ton of ideas. But what were the expectations of everyone else? We dove into this with an activity called Lean Coffee. Everyone had a chance to share what topics were most interesting to them.
Some of the most common topics were
- Revenue Generation (how to make money, at what point to monetize, when to start thinking about revenue…)
- Who care (how to validate, testing, feedback…)
After Lean Coffee, we dove into a showcase by the founder, Danyal Mahmud. He talked about a React Native template project he uses to help streamline the start of new mobile app projects. He used this template to create an app called, Rising Quotes.
Rising quotes is a motivational quote app. You can scroll through different quotes, favorite them, change backgrounds, and share them with your friends.
We closed out the meeting with some networking.
