If You're Not Embarrassed When You Ship Your First Version, You Waited Too Long!

The quote above comes from Matt Mullenweg, founding developer of WordPress. The goal of Dconstrct // Startups is to show how famous startups came from humble beginnings. It proves that good businesses with great valuations take years to build, not months or weeks. Things you can learn from following this series:

How the UX and UI of apps/website have been changing in the recent years?
How the internal structure and expansion strategies change as startups grow?
What is the thought process behind the rebranding of startups?
Many more.


The current iteration of Dconstrct // Startup is just the first iteration (version 0.1). I have plans to make it the most complete startup history or timeline library in the interwebz. I absolutely believe every startup should publish their product timelines so that users/fans will have something to look forward to. Hence, here's the progress bar that shows how far are we from version 1.0.
