Coding Community

What do you guys think?

Hi everyone!

So, I’m building a few apps that are fitness and nutrition related.

It got me thinking that building a community around build in public and mixing it with fitness could be really cool. Like “fit in public.”

We’re all at our desks working on our startups all day, or doing some computer day job and working on our dreams at night. It seems like from a bit of temperature checking that there seems to be an interest.

Is there a space that I could maybe fill that the dev/BIP community as a whole might be interested in?

I love communities and I think that people really sick accountability. Specially for things that sometimes might be harder to keep up like fitness.

Maybe a discord community

You should talk with <@U045QK0GJK1>. She makes accountability workshop. Here is her WBE page: https://wannabe-entrepreneur.com/members/ida-radovanovic/

also is the plan to make money with it?

Not directly, it would definitely help support build a community with our fitness apps, but I wouldn’t monetize the discord itself. Anyone would be welcome, not just our app users 😊

Just keep in mind that managing a community takes time for your day. Is not really passive

I like the “Fit in public” concept.

Also it reminded me this article (with funny animations): https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/health/workout-at-work/

Possible viral idea: it would be fun to start a challenge to film yourself doing some exercises at a workplace and make it a new habit.

joke aside, I think there’s a real demand for accountability groups (I see it with my self-help apps)
