Bootstrapping for Developers
Thursday 21st March 6:00pm at The Manchester Digital Laboratory (MadLab)
Do you have ambitions to be your own boss? Have you ever had a side-project that you wanted to turn into a product and charge people money for? Well then this talk is for you…
Whats the Deal?
Most developers at some point or another have had an idea for an app or side project and wondered if they could take things a step further and turn it into an actual business. This talk will explore some of the ideas and common pitfalls that developers will face when trying to build a business like this in their spare time.
Tekin Suleyman is a Ruby freelancer and founder of crowd.fm. He is also one of the founders and organiser of Bootstrap Business Club, a group for aspiring startup founders trying to build their own bootstrapped startups. He will be talking about bootstrapping as a developer at this year’s Nordic Ruby Conference. This talk will explore some of the ideas he’ll be presenting there this summer. This month’s talk is kindly sponsored by 37signals.
