The High-Ticket Mentor
I know what you’re thinking:
How on Earth is this guy a public speaker, a pro copywriter… and also a Programmer?
Yes, I know.
But I started programing computers WAY before the Internet came about.
And of course, getting involved in software engineering again came naturally to me, especially after seeing the explosion of SAAS companies that has taking place over the last decade or so.
But to be completely honest here, I was as intimidated as you probably are right now seeing the literally THOUSANDS of choices that need to be made before building your SAAS… including programming languages, frameworks, libraries and so on.
I even considered seriously using a non-code platform like Bubble to build my first SAAS project, but after months tinkering around I decided that if I was going to do this, I needed to (re)learn to code by myself.
Non-code platforms sound great on paper, but then your business is locked into a third-party software…
Paying through the nose for basic server capacity, and at the mercy of whatever that company plans are.
What if they go out of business?
What happens to YOUR business then?
What if your users ask you for a feature that your non-code provider doesn’t support… and have no plans to support in the foreseeable future?
What do you do then?
I’ve seen people using Bubble and other similar platforms paying hundreds of dollars a month for a feature that would, literally, take less than 20 lines of code to implement by yourself!
That’s when I decided to go all in, and re-sharpen my by then ancient software engineering skills.
And man it was hard!
I won’t lie to you: understanding how software works did help…
But there were so many things I still needed to figure out by myself!
“What’s the best framework for a Micro-SAAS?”
“What’s the best language?
And talking about libraries…
“What’s the best front-end library for my project?”
“Which ones are a total overkill for a Micro-SAAS company?”
“What server-side technologies should I use?”
“Is a single-page app the way to go?”
“Or will it kill my chances to rank in Google?”
“Should I deploy to my own servers?”
“Or use Amazon AWS/Google Cloud/Microsoft Azure?”
“Should I build a “monolithic” app, or go for the “microservices architecture”?”
“Should I use Docker or other container platform?”
“Kubernetes or Docker Swarm”?
“And what webserver?”
“Apache is still the thing?”
“Or is Nginx better for my purposes?”
“And what about Traffik?”
“Do I need to use an “Edge Proxy”?
“Which one and how to configure it properly to go along my tech stack?”
“Do I need to learn Linux to manage my server?”
“What Distribution of Linux, though?”
"...And what about Bash?”
Oh, and going back to the app itself….
“Should I use Python along with Dyango?”
“Or is Flask better for my project?”
“What about RapidAPI?”
“What template engine?”
And talking about RapidAPI…
“Should I use the API architecture instead of a more traditional frontend-backend architecture?”
(I wasted a good part of a YEAR of work because I didn’t properly understand this!)
“But what kind of API?”
“RESTful or GraphQL?”
But I heard that Python is slow…
“Maybe Node is a better option for my requirements?”
“Oh boy… but Node comes with more than 200k packages to choose from!”
(Have you heard the heaviest object in the Universe joke?)
“Which node module is the best option for each particular task?”
“For instance, what’s the best way of implementing a user login system? (EVERY SAAS needs one of those!)”
“Good old Cookies and Sessions”
“JWT tokens and cookies?”
“And what about security?”
“How do I reduce the chances of being hacked and my users’ information leaked? THAT is REALLY BAD for business!”
Oh, and talking about users, I know that I need a database but…
“Which one is the best?”
“MySQL or Postgres?”
“And what about Mongo and all of those NoSQL databases?”
“Should I outsource the Database to Google Firebase or use AWS Amplify instead?”
“Why most projects built in Node use Mongo as a database?”
“Oh, and what if my app needs to do work in parallel (concurrency)?”
“How do I manage that?”
And if we use Node, we should probably be using a JS frontend library or framework with it, don’t we?
“But WHICH ONE?”
“But is not Deno supposed to replace Node?”
“And Deno is completely written in Rust which is SO much better than C++ for what I’ve heard!”
Oh, and by the way…
“...How am I supposed to take payments in my app??”
So… WHERE TO START??
Let me tell you this:
You don’t have to start from scratch like I did, and risk losing an entire year of your life and, most likely, a few tens of thousands of dollars to find your way through this crazy tech maze.
I have already done this for you!
Just jump onto a call with me, tell me more about what you’re trying to build -under strict NDA terms, of course- and I’ll put you on the right track.
No painful mistakes needed.
There is no one-size-fits-all in the software business!
Your project will most likely have specific constrains that will more or less dictate the specific technologies you should be looking at.
In my own software projects, I’ve used very different tech stacks each time, because the specifications of each project called for it.
So far, these are some of the technologies I’ve personally worked with:
Nginx Edge Proxy
Traffik Edge Proxy
Mongo Databases (NoSQL)
Firebase Databases (NoSQL)
And learning new tricks every passing day!
Now, let me be completely upfront here:
You will find thousands of articles, videos and even full courses covering each one of the technologies listed above, at a fraction of the cost of this Software Consultation call.
But how many of those programmers are, also, marketing experts on their own right?
How many of them have built their own SAAS company from the ground up, including writing every line of code that went into the software…
AND every piece of sales copy and marketing material too?
Yes, THAT'S WHY I CAN HELP YOU
See you on the call!
