If there’s one thing we rely on as indies, it’s inspiration. We wouldn’t be here if we didn’t have it, and learning how to feed it and channel it is a core part of what we need to do to survive. Alice, Jelly and Curtis take a look at where they get inspiration from, what they do when it’s not flowing, how they think they could get better at fostering it.

Every year at WWDC, Apple drops a bunch of new things for app developers to work on, and 2019 is no different… in fact, it may be the biggest year we’ve had for a while. Alice, Curtis and Jelly talk about what they tend to take from the developer conference each year, and how to approach integrating the new features into their various apps.
Alice is the co-creator of Gus on the Go, a series of language learning apps for young kids. She focuses on developing educational content, business development and devising a marketing strategy on an indie budget.
In a former life (i.e. pre-kids), Alice and her husband used to run a fun food photography blog: eataduckimust.com. These days, they dream of raising their boys to be globe-trotting polyglots… but will also just settle for them becoming adventurous eaters.
Curtis Herbert is an independent iOS app creator, writer, speaker, and Apple enthusiast. These days he spends most of his time working on Slopes, a tracking app for skiers and snowboarders.
Curtis spends his free time snowboarding, gaming, and enjoying life in the suburbs of Philadelphia.
Daniel “Jelly” Farrelly
The creator of GIFwrapped, Jelly spends his days as an independent developer, moonlighting as a freelancer where it suits his whims.
When he’s not working on code, Jelly spends his time illustrating, building Lego, thinking about a future controlled by robots, or occasionally unpacking the dishwasher.
