Don't Just Build Things

Peteris Erins over at posts:

Build it because it is cool or build it to sell — somewhere between these two approaches lies the sweet spot. Better than the product only you would use and the product that people would blindly buy is a meaningful and valuable product.

I completely agree.


My name is Matt Coneybeare, I design and develop for iOS (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch), Mac OS X and the Web out of New York. In 2008 I started a software company called Urban Apps that has made some pretty popular apps such as Ambiance and Hourly News. My current Stack Overflow reputation is about 27k.

I was a Rockstar a decade ago, but then went back to school and collected a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science from U.C. Berkeley. Now I am settled down with my beautiful wife Di and our dog Hamachi. When not at my desk, I love exploring New York City as a Yelp Elite, or training for marathons.
