“Working with Developers”

5:30pm-8:00pm
Register!


Are you a non-technical startup founder who’s challenged by working with technical people?  Having trouble recruiting them?  Aren’t sure if your team is executing very well?  Not sure if they are building things the right way?  Can’t understand how you can be relatively clear about what you want only to find they’ve built something different from what you said, and it took longer and even that doesn’t work quite right?  Find that talking with them often seems like more work than it should? 

 

Many non-technical founders find this to be their experience. Dr. Tony Karrer has been bridging the gap between non-technical founders and technical resources for the past 20+ years. 

 

His presentation looks at:

Basics of recruiting and working with technical people.  Communications, motivators/demotivators.

  • Founder Developer Gap.  Recognizing it and how to close it.
  • Symptoms of a Poor Development Team and what to do about it.
  • Product and Project Management.  Documenting for developers.
 

You will walk away with a better understanding of how to effectively work with your CTO and developers.
