I have software development skills, I want to get into business - solve a problem, sell a product.
My biggest issue is coming up with that problem to solve - what people need. Has anyone else been in the same boat?
5 years with windows development (WPF/C#).
Currently working in a web environment - AngularJS/Bootstrap/js front end, WebAPI (C#) backend.
Pretty 'well rounded' and considered a utility player at one former job, by no means a genius but I get work done.
Also it might helps to look at software which is necessary for some people but has not improved the last 5 to 10 years. Then create something similar but in a more intuitive way to solve the problem. Just as an example where problem-solving software could be needed: Ergonomics
Good luck anon
>>1089502 I have a friend of mine who lives with Tourette's and is a indie movie director. Regardless, if someone is willing to offer me a cheaper and comparable (quality wise) solution for a problem my company has I would go with the small guy. It cuts down on costs. I'm a small time web dev (for now) and business is good. Sure no big money just yet. But I figure I keep growing my portfolio before expanding for bigger contracts. Maybe hire some people eventually.
