Hey everyone 👋
Let’s open this newsletter with a powerful quote ⬇️

KP
Reminder:

Building in public is not about chasing vanity metrics like followers counts, likes and retweets

It’s about increasing your luck surface area on the Internet ⚡️

Fix your North Star, rest will follow
Luck surface area. Aka serendipity. Aka helping relevant and like-minded people find you through your content. That’s what building in public is all about.
With that said, get ready for October’s community edition highlighting key launches and wins from founders, makers, and creators in the #buildinpublic community.
Without further ado, let’s get rolling 🏀

Maker Spotlight 🔅
As a surprise addition, today, I wanted to feature a maker who caught my eye on the original thread.
It is Ramsri Goutham Golla who is building Questgen in public, which is an AI microSaaS platform. Think of it like Copy.ai but for edtech to autogenerate assessments like MCQs, True/False from any text. I was impressed by his tweets and the fact that he was leveraging no-code tools so I did a quick interview with him about his lessons. Here they are:
What’s one lesson you learned from building this product?
Coming from Data Science background, I tried several times to learn enough frontend and backend to put together an AI app and launch.
But because of the sheer complexity involved in it, my projects never saw the light for the day.
Nocode tools like Bubble just blew me away with their capabilities. In a month of learning Bubble, my app was live with payments integrated.
What’s your no-code stack?
Dorik (Landing Page), Bubble (Main App), GPT-3, and text processing API on AWS (low-code)
What are some impressive stats about your product?
800+ signups, 10,000+ MCQs generated, and 4 paid users ($68 revenue) in 2 months of launch.
