Hey Product Hunt! 37signals started an indie SaaS revolution when they launched Basecamp and Ruby on Rails. Since 2004, thousands of entrepreneurs, developers, designers, and product people have tried to capture some of that success by launching their own web apps. But what does it take to launch a Software as a Service business in 2018? "Build Your SaaS" follows our journey as we launch Transistor.fm. We cover topics like finding a cofounder, why we're using Rails, and how to validate your idea. Have a question you'd like us to cover on the show? Ask below!

@realnegotiator we answered that question in this episode: "Six screens and a power glove." https://saas.transistor.fm/episo...

I'm a fan of Justin's previous podcasts. I like the authenticity he brings to the table when describe his personal wins or fails, and doesn't ignore the hard parts. The parts where opportunity and timing intersect to make or break a significant progression for a business. While lots of other podcasts focus solely on the wins, this podcast takes a wholesome view to building a business in 2018.

Pros:

Experienced speakers get to the nitty gritty of modern SaaS building

Cons:

Non yet

@lenmarkidan thanks! We really feel there was a need for an honest show about building a SaaS nowadays.
This is an *awesome* idea @mijustin -> things sure have changed a lot since 37signals released Basecamp. Love the first few episodes and I’m looking forward to following along on the journey and learning what you learn! This is a must listen podcast for anyone even just thinking about SaaS today.
