The Business of Side Projects

A session at DDD North 2012

Like many developers I have started and abandonned my fair share of side projects. There are so many great ideas but it never seems like there is the time to finish them. I decided that if I wanted to spend more time on my side projects, they were going to have to start paying for themselves.

In this talk I will discuss how I've started to do that and how the new app store markets are hopefully making it possible for more people to make a living (or a percentage of one) from their own software.

I'll talk about creating the app Font Picker and getting it into the Mac App and soon the Windows 8 store. I'll let you know how well it's gone so far, and try to extrapolate how feasable it is to make a living completely out of my own sofware in the future.
