Work in Progress is a community of makers. We help each other stay accountable and focussed on building, shipping, and growing our products.
We publicly share our todos, celebrate our successes, discuss our failures, track our goals, and provide each other with actionable feedback.
Don't ship by yourself, ship together!
I've gotten more done in the last 9 days than I have in the last 2 months.Cons:
The first thing on my mind when I wake up is what I'm going to ship today. I've gotten some big rocks done tasks that ordinarily would've taken me a month or 2-3 weeks to do I've gotten done in a day because I'm held accountable.Jonathan Kosgei has used this product for one week.
Great community of makers, makes me more productive, gives me a real sense of progressCons:
Lack of industry/product diversity
I've been a paying member for 3 months now and I have no doubt I'll be a lifetime member. Seeing makers ship just about everyday, combined with the social task list and streak counter were critical to me finishing my first ARKit app, Word Vomit 3D, in a short two months.
I will also never forget my first interaction with the community: I was instantly greeted by a crowd of friendly people including Marc, who all seemed genuinely curious to know what I was working on. I shared a few screens, got great feedback, and even got a full tutorial on how to get set up my project on wip.chat. Then we all talked about chocolate milk https://imgur.com/e9HvKyP.png
My only critique as of now is that the community feels much more geared towards software-for-startups, nomad, web, and subscription type companies, and could benefit from some product diversity.
