Why is “v2 a lie”? This site started with a frustration towards MVPs that are not actually “viable” because core features of the overall product vision were ripped out just to get a product live. It would often be stated that those features would be added into v2 of the product – we’re being “agile“. However, too often I see a lack of iteration within a product lifecycle. V1/MVP exists in the market for far too long, impacting usability and retention. You may only get one chance to impress a user. If your v1 doesn’t impress, they won’t even be around for v2.
I aim to change the perception of “v2 is a lie” by delivering not just viable products to market, but amazing products in v1.
