Starting a Technology Company - By a Non-Tech Founder

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Have an idea for a tech startup but not the technical chops to know where to start? Do terms like Javascript, Rails, and APIs leave you clueless or make your head spin? If so, this session is for you. Believe it or not, you don't have to be a coding whiz to bring a technical product to life. That being said, it certainly helps to learn enough to be "dangerous." Do you want to be able to effectively communicate with and have credibility with developers? Understand what it takes to build an app? Speak to your product? Manage your development budget? Of course you do! And it's not as hard as you think. In this session, we'll discuss ways to approach launching a technology business as a non-technical founder. The session will cover tips and tricks for getting quickly "spun up" up on the latest and greatest languages, frameworks, and terminology that will help you to feel more confident talking the talk and working with developers to bring your ideas to life.
