Summary: This is a live coding session. In this session I am producing a quote card for a psychologist. The quote card is basically a graphics image that people, such as independent professionals, may use to communicate with their audiences. When doing this work in a half-automated half-manual approach I am putting myself in a spot for learning thus to feedback the design and discovery lean process of the MVP.
Parent project: mini sites platform, a platform for individuals and their multiple roles in life
This is a live coding session with an entrepreneurial touch. In this session I am producing a quote card for a psychologist. The quote card is basically a graphics image that people, such as independent professionals (authors, psychologists, nutritionists, etc) can share with the audiences using social networks.
The hypothesis here, an assumption or guess, is that the individual professional may need, from time to time, to generate these images for sharing purposes. The hypothesis for this work is to check if they might be interested in a system that helps to produce the quote cards in alignment with their web site identity — matching colors, fonts, and referring to the site address, for example.
In the first part of this session I do a quick overview of the platform, then I move on to do the quote card for her. Notice that this is an MVP, a minimum viable product, that includes serious piece of software but it can be confusing that I am doing certain things by hand, being an entrepreneur in the middle of the process. This is by design, not to make things more difficult but to make sure I am monitoring, learning with them.
