For geeks who like making things


MegaMaker is for geeks who ❤️ making things. We help developers, designers, and product people:

  • Make better stuff on the web.
  • Earn a better living from what they make.


For some folks, “earning a better living” will mean bootstrapping a product business, but for others, it might mean building a side-project that earns $2k / year and helps them take their family to Disneyland.


Basically, we’re web workers who want more than a regular 9-5.

Our history


In 2012, Kyle Fox and I started an interview podcast called Product People. We chatted with developers, designers, and founders about the process of making digital products. Folks like Jason Fried, Nathan Barry, and Adam Wathan.


Then, in 2013, I created a community for makers. I discovered that there were lots of indie web creators who had similar struggles: isolation, motivation, getting good feedback, and making better things.


In 2016, the MegaMaker podcast launched (search for “MegaMaker” in your podcast player).


Today, the MegaMaker Club is home to over 400+ members, from all over the world.

Every week we share our progress, get feedback on our projects, and help each other when we launch something new.


Who are our members?


Software developers, designers, product manager, marketing managers… really anyone who’s building and launching projects. Some folks have launched full-time SaaS businesses, while others have built fun side-projects. Everyone is welcome!


It’s working: I’m extremely proud of what members have accomplished. Our alumni list includes Ryan Hoover (who started Product Hunt), William Channer (who started Panda), Espree Dvora (who started LA Tech), and Robert Williams (who credits the club as the birthplace of Workshop):


“Having people you can ask questions to is extremely valuable. The club was literally the birthplace for my service, Workshop. They helped me start it a year ago and continue to help me improve it today.”
