Leader: Chris McCoy, @chrisamccoy
The most expensive thing any tech startup does is ship code. Cost of hiring engineers here in is stratospheric. Even then, executing back-end of an application is one layer in what is a complex process of dreaming up, building UI, approving UI/UX, and then putting into back-end production (and therefore front-end integration).
Smartest thing any entrepreneur can do is lower their cost of production so more resources can be used for front-end perfection and execution.
There’s an army of talented engineers around the world. They may not invent like you (us), but they sure can execute code given the right direction, architecture, and product flow.
This session designed to show you how to build a product factory in India from recruiting, to communication, to cloud-based product management, to achieving continuous integration.
We’ve executed this model at YourSports and are in process of scaling: http://dev.yoursports.com/mocks/pages/russell.php#/played
