As we continually chase the latest tech trends, let’s not forget the value in embracing ‘boring’ but reliable technology. I personally aspire to emulate the likes of Pieter Levels, a well-known Indie Hacker. Utilizing tried-and-true tools like PHP and jQuery, he’s built a consistent monthly SaaS revenue stream of $250,000. His success is a testament to the fact that stable technology, mastered and applied effectively, often outweighs the allure of the newest trends. It’s a reminder that mastery of the fundamentals can lead to substantial success.
The strategies effective for a solopreneur without any stakeholders, deadlines or code-sharing responsibilities may not translate as efficiently to the context of a medium to large-scale enterprise. There are no silver bullets, but Levels does seem to be Blade!
