This is a great resource full of actionable steps to take when designing something new or improving something you've already shipped. I've already referenced it a handful of times in the past few weeks for some projects I'm working on.

Hey PH! 👋 Lindsey from thoughtbot here. Long time fan, first time maker. We're really excited to launch this first iteration of Purpose-built and get some feedback from folks like you who appreciate great products! If you're familiar with thoughtbot, you know the team has been providing amazing open source and knowledge-sharing to the developer community for 15 years. While we continue to do that, we also want to help lesser-technical entrepreneurs who are just as passionate about building game-changing web and mobile products. After some user interviews, we honed in on the following areas where entrepreneurs want help, and where thoughtbot and our network can provide expertise: - Validate or Fail Fast - De-risk your Business - Accelerate Time to Market - Ensure Product Quality Would love to hear what kind of content and tools you think would be helpful to add. We're here to answer questions - thanks!

These are great. I have learned so much through Thoughtbot's resources over the years. These are well curated content. I am a visual learner, so I think creating videos on these valuable content will be awesome too.

I like this. This is a detailed and useful set of steps that can be done quickly. Really helpful idea as it helps to both be rigorous and emphatic in making choices, and most importantly doing it quickly. (p.s. have added this as an answer here https://www.producthunt.com/ask/...)
