As David Weekly explains in the video below, it’s important to “make the main thing people do with your product as simple as possible” to attract users and give them a feeling of confidence. 

David Weekly is the founder of  PBworks and the HackerDojo . He is also partner at Mexican.vc,  and a cofounder of the SuperHappyDevHouse .  

In this talk from last year's San Francisco Founder Institute, David explains that the you need to build products with empathy for the user to create something that resonates.
