Indie Hackers interview with Oh Dear!

Tuesday, September 11, 2018

I recently did an interview with Indie Hackers about our newly launched Oh Dear! monitoring service.

Some fun questions that I hope give more insight into how the idea came to be, where we are now and what our plans are for the future.

Hi! My name is Mattias Geniar and together with my partner Freek Van der Herten we founded Oh Dear!, a new tool focused on monitoring websites.

We both got fed up with existing tools that didn't fit our needs precisely. Most came close, but there was always something — whether settings or design choices — that we just didn't like. Being engineers, the obvious next step was to just build it ourselves!

Oh Dear! launched in private beta earlier this year and has been running in production for a few months now.

Some more details are available in the forum discussion about our launch.
