    NOTABLE! Help! How do I sell my SaaS application to HVAC, Plumbing, Electrical, Maid Service, Yard Care, etc., Companies?

    Are the two companies you do business with in the same industry? Looking at your home page, it seems like you may want to conquer one niche to start, then expand. At my day job I work with very similar CRM systems for Home Inspection companies, and there are so many small but killer features...

    The Oft-Repeated Pattern of Stakeholder Demotion and Entrepreneurial Opportunity

    So glad there's a good competitor to Adobe now. I downloaded Affinity a couple months ago to do some quick wireframes and its 99% of what I wanted from similar Adobe tools and really fast to boot. I have the iPad and desktop apps and both are fantastic.

    HOT TOPIC Fastest Way to Build an App?

    How so? Right now is the easiest time in history to get started in application development. You have a wealth of templates, courses, and hard problems productized out for you to build off of (Stripe, Cloud Providers, etc.).

    OFF-TOPIC Must See Movies, Recommendations?

    I agree with you on Disney, Marvel, action movies with cars and gun chases. But... if you want to give action movies a try, I would totally recommend Baby Driver. Thought I would hate it from the trailer. Friend had to drag me to the movie theatre, but damn its one of my favorite overall...

    HOT TOPIC Which programming language do you use most?

    Haha, I think python is here to stay for quite a while. And the best language is the one you know and are already productive in.

    HOT TOPIC Which programming language do you use most?

    Elixir is its own language. Phoenix is a library for Elixir. Postgres is its own database. Turbolinks, Stimulus, and React are all javacript libraries. The libraries were outside of the scope of the original question, but felt like they were worth mentioning if anyone was interested

    HOT TOPIC Which programming language do you use most?

    I do a lot of web development. I've worked with lots of languages of the past 8 years. For the past two years I've been happily coding with Elixir. Elixir is a weird mix of Ruby syntax on top of the Erlang VM. Looks hipster at first but... I first got into Elixir actually through watching a...
