How StatusPage.io Was Built
Scott recently took some time to discuss the early stages of StatusPage with Yonas Beshawred, Founder of Leanstack.io. Here are a few highlights and you can also read through the interview in it's entirety to learn more about building our MVP.
“Empathy is the single most scarce resource that we have as human beings…When we came up with the MVP, we had to stop thinking “what’s the cool tech we can build” or “what’s gonna be fun to work on” from a developer’s perspective.”
“We design for the novice, configure for the pro. But where you put that line in the sand for designing for the novice is up for debate. And a lot of times, you have to talk to a lot of people to figure out where that line is.”
“We were live for about six weeks and accepting payments from real customers before we had even launched on HackerNews… That’s one of the big disconnects with people that build products. You think that you just code in your basement and then you flip the switch and TechCrunch writes an article about you. And that’s usually not at all how it goes.”
