If there’s something that I learned in Novu - ride hypes.
WaspLang is a framework for React, Node.js, and Prisma.
What’s their connection to ChatGPT? Not much, however:
You might think, ok, but ChatGPT has nothing to do with my product - well, it can be, and it doesn’t have to be ChatGPT. Choose any hype: LangChain, Stable Diffusion, llama, Gen2, Apple VR 😎
You will not implement ChatGPT in your app - that will be wild 🤪 especially if you are an open-source library.
Think about a product that can complete your product.
It can be anything of:
Here are a few examples:
Once you have developed your new product (by-product), you must buy a new domain (not a subdomain, that’s important). It has to serve as a “new brand.”
Next, create a DEV guide on how you made the tool and the call to action for the tool.
Try to post it on Hackernews on “Show HN:” - please ensure it looks good so they accept you.
Post it on Reddit - find the right channel for you that can be any of: /r/selfhosted
And last and most important - Release it on Product Hunt
That’s the Wasp framework that generated 7k users (so far) for them.
I like this story because the product is just good, and the community around it is vast (junior developers). They have got around 1k views on DEV (I usually get at least 10k) and got to be trending on GitHub.
Actually, I am not surprised that one of the most trending articles I have on Medium is building a resume with AI (maybe that’s your next by-product?)
Maybe you think that’s not a lot, but that's huge for somebody with 820 followers.

Definitely going to repeat that every week. It’s so low effort and so popular that I hate it a bit - but as somebody told me, “If it works, don’t touch it.”
See you next week.
