Happy Monday, everyone!

We made it to the 23rd issue! Thank you to everyone who read last week’s issue ❤️

📆 Today’s issue is the last issue of 2020 🥳 Being the last issue of the year, it seemed appropriate to do a review of this year and all of the indie dev’s that have so graciously answered my questions!

Going into this year, I had very little knowledge of the indie dev community. I knew of some indie devs but I wasn’t specifically paying attention to anything. I ended up discovering Charlie Chapman and his Launched podcast. Charlie has a very inspirational story himself but also interviews other indie developers about their app launches and stories. I binge listened to a bunch of Launched episodes in one day and it snowballed into an indie dev addiction 🙂

On July 21st, I announced my launch of Indie Dev Monday. You can read it (again) here. One of my goals with Indie Dev Monday was a little bit selfish 😇 I wanted to connect with and learn more about other indie developers. I wanted to learn their stories, what drives them, and where their inspirations comes from. I’m happy to say I succeed at this goal 😉 But I didn’t want to keep all of this to myself. The result was weekly newsletters with spotlights on one or two indie developers.

The final numbers for this year were 39 indie developers across 19 different countries!

You can read all of their stories here.

Below is a map and index of all of the indie devs 👇

This map will also always be available at indiedevmonday.com/map and will be updated after every new issue 💪
