Should We Build This?

We're pivoting from a code marketplace to a machine learning marketplace. Is this useful? I could use your advice.

We’re pivoting to a machine learning marketplace, and I could really use your advice.

Hi, I’m Andrew. I’m the founder of SugarKubes. I wanted to thank you for signing up. I know you haven’t heard much from me but I’ve given the code marketplace a year. It wasn’t working and it’s time for a change.

As many of you noticed, the code marketplace was relatively empty. Turns out bootstrapping a marketplace that’s better than GitHub is (VERY) hard.

I’ve decided to narrow the scope of SugarKubes to just machine learning. We will package the best in class machine learning models into docker containers that are easy to run and deploy.

But, I could use your advice:

  • Would you buy docker containers that have beautifully documented machine learning models?

  • Should I kill this idea and shut it down?

  • Is there a better niche to go after?

Getting feedback from early adopters like yourselves is really damn hard, and I’d deeply appreciate your quick thoughts.

As always feel free to reach out to me over email at
