Just came across the community and fell in love. I am curious about:

  1. Hashnode's UI/UX looks great. Who designs the UI/UX?
  2. Where is your team based? India? US? Remote? Earth? Mars?
  3. How many people in your team?
  4. I don't want you guys to shutdown, do you have any plans to make money? Patreon might be an option as well.

Thanks for the nice words -- my co-founder Syed Fazle Rahman is the designer.

Where is your team based? India? US? Remote? Earth? Mars?

It's fully remote.

Engineering team: Girish Patil, Mohd Shad Mirza and Vamsi Rao from India.

Devrel and Marketing: Bolaji Ayodeji and Edidiong Asikpo from Nigeria.

How many people in your team?

7 full-time, including Fazle and me.

I don't want you guys to shutdown, do you have any plans to make money? Patreon might be an option as well.

We have raised 1M in seed funding so far. We might raise more in future if needed. However, monetization remains #1 priority for us. I have outlined some of the potential monetization plans here: hashnode.com/post/hashnode-is-changing-more..

Don't worry -- we are here to stay. 🍻
