A community for bootstrappers

MegaMaker is for geeks who ❤️ making things. We help developers, designers, and product people:

  • Make better stuff on the web.
  • Earn a better living from what they make.

For some folks, “earning a better living” will mean bootstrapping a product business, but for others, it might mean building a side-project that earns $2k / year and helps them take their family to Disneyland.

Basically, we’re web workers who want more than a regular 9-5.
