As a developer who enjoys working alone, it's always inspiring to see awesome products created entirely by a team of one. What are some products you use or know of?
- This game was created by one developer over a period of about 4 years. It's grossed over an estimated $20 mil USD since its release last year.
- A plugin to connect your WordPress site with your MailChimp account. Built by just me in late 2013 from a hospital bed in Vietnam (I had acute appendicitis). It's being used on 800.000+ sites, grossed $4.000 in its first month and is now at ~$40k per month. It's still just me taking care of everything, with a little help to handle first level support queries.
- Built by @ajlkn, this is an amazing tool to build landing and marketing pages, portfolios, and simple websites, without having to code.
- Mitch Colleran made this productA simple SaaS solution for medium-sized nonprofits to manage their members. Currently, only a single full-time employee (yours truly! 🙌🏽 ). I started this journey back in September 2016 -- and choosing to bootstrap the company on my own has been my best professional decision to-date. :)
- This guy curated all best developer books by crawling stackoverflow with tags and categories. I am really amazed, how such a simple project is helpful for so many people. He has also put up a post on medium to used affiliate marketing on Amazon to get few bucks out of it.
