Don’t worry – build your app…
Allocate your fear properly
When it comes to building a web app, some things create more fear than they should…
Fear: It won’t scale
Truth: You’re not going to be Google overnight.
Fear: Too many bugs
Truth: As long as they don’t wipe the database, you can live with most bugs for a while.
Fear: Too few features
Truth: You can always add features later.
Fear: Never go down
Truth: Once-in-a-while downtime won’t scare people away.
Fear: It’s too simple
Truth: Simple solutions are fine if they get the job done.
Fear: They’ll copy us
Truth: It’s about the execution, not the idea.
Fear: We must sound serious
Truth: Trying to sound serious all the time makes you bland and unremarkable. It’s ok to be playful and have personality.
