Hey From The Future
// A platform that allows people to share advice they wish they had at younger ages
About The Project
Hey From The Future is an advice sharing website that allowed users to submit anonymous advice they wish they had at a particular age. Simply sign up with your birthday, and you can submit advice to your younger self, advice for the younger generation, or tidbits of information you want to pass on. Users can then vote on which advice they found the most helpful.
Why Build It?
I actually built it as a project on my birthday. I had the idea floating around in my head for maybe a year prior, but never did anything about it. Turning another year older gave me the kick in the butt to sit down for a few days, code up a MVP, deploy it, and launch - it's been giving advice ever since.
The website mostly runs itself, but from time to time I do need to remove a few spam comments. This is more of an art project than it is a website or a business, which is why I never have plans to monetize it. It's a project I come back to every year on my birthday, and if it helps me - hopefully it helps someone else.
Let's Work Together
I solve problems with DevOps, Developer Relations, IoT, and Artificial Intelligence.
