Last year, I launched with a friend Japan Direct, an itinerary app for Japan travellers. Even if the first version came up quite quickly, I kept iterate but always staying focus on customer feedback first. Almost a year later, it’s good time for synthesis, see what worked and how we created a customer focused app.
From my first year studying computer science, I’ve always wanted to do more on my free time and create simple projects that could be useful for others. I won’t lie, I wish I was able to monetise them but regardless the outcome, learning was always part of the journey.
I recently followed a growth marketing course, introducing mindset and methodology to make a company grow. I learnt a lot from it and since, I try to apply this knowledge on a daily basis. After more reflection on it, a lot of ideas looked very similar to software development job, this is the part I would like to share.
