Technical cofounding 101: How to find and work with a technical cofounder.
Monday, 2 April 2012 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EST)
A primer to help non-technical founders of web and mobile business startups get a better idea of how to find and work with potential technical partners or cofounders.
The technology that goes into starting a startup can be pretty daunting to the non-technical entrepreneur. Technological assistance for building startups come in many forms, from freelance developers to finding cofounders with technical skill to incubators and accelerators, and whether to seek assistance locally or offshore. Then there's all the technical jargon. The development world is filled with buzzwords from Ruby on Rails to PHP, Java, Servers, HTML5 and a gazillion others.
In this talk I will explore and help demystify some of these topics and give the non-techies some intellectual ammunition and confidence in seeking a technical partner. To provide a broad overview of what to look for and the right questions to ask when evaluating options. How to understand the development process and what practices are used to manage software development projects. How to prioritise and ensure the technical solution reflects the desired direction of the business. Help make sure your ambitions are achievable technically.
Come along, it will be informative and fun!
