# How to start and grow a side project to a profitable SaaS

A while ago I created a PHP powered uptime service as a side project. It can perform uptime checks, certificate checks, detect mixed content and broken links. This service managed to become profitable.

In this talk you’ll learn the story of how and why I created the service. Besides a technical code dive on how to build and test an uptime service in PHP you will get actionable tips on how to start and grow your own side project.
