Indie Hackers is indie again!

Courtland Allen:

Exactly six years ago (to the day!), Stripe acquired Indie Hackers to help us grow and inspire millions of people building online businesses.

Today, I’m happy to announce that @channingallen and I are indie hackers again!

So what now?

Well, if we want to survive and thrive, we’re going to have to generate revenue just like any other business! I’m an entrepreneur at heart and always have been. In fact, working at Stripe was my first and only salaried job.

Right now we’re sitting at exactly $0 in MRR, so the journey is just now (re)starting.

Welcome back to the club, guys! Exciting times 💯

Am I too old to do a coding bootcamp?

Imposter syndrome is alive and well. It’s up to us, the community, to fight back against the voice inside our heads telling us we don’t belong, or we can’t do it. Here are some of my favorite responses…

Never too old. Do it!

I’m 60 years old and just launched my own venture…

You don’t have to “fit into the tech scene” to be a developer.

I was 33 when I went through a coding boot camp after almost 16 years of being a fire fighter…that was 4 years ago.

I’m currently in a coding bootcamp and I’m 36 years old.

I’m 71 and I program every day.

You are !imposter
