How to stop making shit nobody cares about

Have you ever built something, launched it, and wondered...why isn't anybody using it? If you had hopes of selling what you made, you might've invested a lot of time and money only to learn that nobody's buying. It seems like startups and CEOs get all the glory, with piles of someone else's cash giving them the time to figure out a "product market fit". You're a maker, without all of the flash and resources. Can you get more people to use the things you make – and maybe even buy them – without "growth hacking" or other slimy sales tactics?

Come early for some food and refreshments sponsored by thoughtbot.
