Oh…I am so sleepy…because I launched AskMakers 2.0 on Product Hunt and I have been monitoring it almost without sleeping😪
The first version of it was launched about 10 months ago. I worked so hard on it and it got over 100 upvotes within 24 hours for the first time🤩
To make an app useful, I sent emails to ask successful makers to join AskMakers. I am nobody, just a software developer from Tokyo (currently in Vancouver), however, some of them signed up on and support it!! Unbelievable🤯
After that, it took 10 months until the launch of 2.0… I always thought like I need to add more features to launch, and I felt like I can never launch it…I should not try to be perfect.

Eventually, I decide to launch AskMakers 2.0!
The new version of AskMakers is now LIVE on @ProductHunt 📢— Taishi@🇨🇦 (@askmakers_app) July 21, 2020
This is a Q&A web app for makers (You can say Quora for makers)💡
Thank you for the support @mijustin @1HaKr @hyper_yolo @jonathanbull @jtatsubana and many makers👩💻🧑💻🙏https://t.co/ufuB8O6JPb
BTW, it’s live on Product Hunt. Please check it AskMakers 2.0 - Ask experienced makers questions💡
I know most users don’t care what kind of technology the product use but…yeah, I just did. ・Next.js for SSR ・Totally new design with Tailwind CSS I used to use Nuxt.js and Bulma for AskMakers, but I wanted to make SSR and use React, so I chose Next.js.
I have worked so hard to make it better for users to browse AskMakers. I am not a designer so I did research, learned, and applied my new knowledge to AskMakers.
When I sent an email to @dinkydani21 about AskMakers, she told me the categories and search functionality are absolutely necessary for AskMakers. I agree! What kind of web applications like this doesn’t have these functionalities? I wrote a code and implemented it ASAP. Thank you for the kind feedback @dinkydani21 😊

I am very excited about the future!! I talked with my friend @shyamady and I think I got a very promising idea for the v3.0. Can’t wait to show you!
