Links for January 12, 2018

NYTimes: A terrific photo story of a pencil factory, gives you a better feel for the backstory of I, Pencil.

Book and Ledger: Introduction to forming a business, good overview, especially the part of different business structures (LLC, etc).

IndieHackers: Some links to interviews and info on no-code programming. I think this is fine for people who want to put together strawman products or MVP apps, but I am not sure this would be a good base for a “for-real” business. But – who am I to say this? I am no entrepreneur!

HackerNoon: A story of what a person did over last year to go from zero knowledge of web development and Javascript to becoming a full-time web development employee. There was a little bit of deception to me in that near the end of the article, the author adds that he did have programming experience prior to starting his education effort.  That greatly reduces the effect of rags-to-riches, in my opinion.

Joshua Lyman: What I learned about bootstrapping in 2017 – the article breaks his experience into seven lessons. I liked the details he shared about his stumbles as well as his successes.
