Fireside Chat: Build Your Application Without Getting Burnt
Thu, 18 May 2017, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM EDT
Are you interested in building some piece of software? Just about every business needs custom software at some point in its lifetime, be it for a simple web site, a web based application, mobile app, or even code to run machinery.
Maybe you know a little, or next to nothing, about what it takes to get the best deal and get the job done right? That’s not unusual, and in this chat, experts from Coder Scoop Inc, a London based software development firm, will help you navigate these waters successfully with insider tips that will keep you in full control of the process.
We’ll look at what options you have in terms of software developers, from big brick and mortar companies, through offshoring, to lone freelancers, outlining the advantages and disadvantages as well the relative cost of each. We’ll also explain estimates:
• Non-disclosure agreements and service contracts
• Should you do it yourself?
• How to make a project description that covers all the bases
• Minimizing scope creep
• Which technology is suitable for your project?
• Beware the dirty tricks and bad habits of some developers
• Using and customizing open source software to save you money
• Commercial software packages and SaaS (software as a service)
• Are patents and trademarks necessary?
Join us for this no-holds-barred Fireside Chat with Coder Scoop on Thursday May 18th from 3:00-4:00pm in the MVP Lab! To RSVP for the event, sign up on Eventbrite.
