THIS SLIDES ARE NOT INSPIRATIONAL, RATHER FULL OF
MISTAKES ;)
I START, BUT FAIL TO LAUNCH.
#1 : TREATED SIDEPROJECT AS EXPERIMENT

Treat sideproject and experiments differently
#2 : USING UNKNOWN FRAMEWORKS

Use the known frameworks and libraries
Known frameworks = less learning curve
#3 : DIDN'T KEEP TRACK OF TIME

Schedule the roadmap and stick with it.
#4 : PLANNED A TON OF FEATURES

Make it minimalistic
Cut down features
#5 : PERFECTIONISM

Don't worry about design
Ship it. we people will report the bugs.
#6 : DIDN'T OPENSOURCE

someone intrested may come forward and help you.
#7 : MULTITASKING

One app at a time
Again, scheduling may help you.
