CtrlAlt.CC is an indie maker tools directory and a free community that gathers startup founders, digital creators, and indie makers.
This community's purpose is to help people find cool tools built by indie makers worldwide. These tools sometimes fly under the radar but can make your life easier.
The directory gets manually updated every Friday with products that Daniela, the founder, came across that week. Friday is also when she sends her newsletter, "Product of the Week". Here, she features a useful tool from the directory. She also shares community updates, maker stories, member articles, and new launches from the community's timeline.
(If you have a product on the directory, keep in mind that the more "Helpful tool" nominations your product gets, the more likely it will become "Product of the week " and it'll get a free feature on the newsletter).
It's completely free to register, create a new user profile, and start participating in the community. If you have one, you can add your product to the directory to get it in front of other makers, designers, engineers, developers, startup founders, and anybody who just loves startup tools.
Submitting your product costs £9.99. However, one of your product's users can submit it for free. They only have to include a few words on how it helps with their tasks. Just keep in mind that products uploaded for free enter a queue of approximately 30 days.
Besides uploading your product, you can also connect with potential users by sharing your maker story in your profile. On the other hand, makers can also share new features of their products as they launch them, as well as articles and tools they use on a daily basis to run their businesses.
This way, you can connect with like-minded people, see what they are building, and which tools they are using. Overall, CtrlAltCC is a great platform to get more eyeballs on your product while you meet other founders and makers and create collaboration opportunities together.

"Daniela @nerddoingsocial has built a super helpful discovery site for indie maker tools over at ctrlalt.cc. She also made my day last Friday by making @joinquda product of the week and left a product review. Thanks, Daniela!" -Justin
