MASTERCLASS 9: WORKING WITH TECHNICAL PEOPLE

Almost every startup is now at least partially a tech business. In this masterclass we’ll help you demystify the terminology, processes and people needed for working on tech products, to give you the confidence to embrace the software or hardware component of your startup. By the end of it, you should have the tools you need to understand what’s being built without having to become a coder yourself.


IN THIS MASTERCLASS YOU'LL

    • Learn how to work with developers to plan how much something will cost to build
    • Develop an understanding of technical risks, and how to mitigate them
    • Get an understanding of how developers think and communicate
    • Hear what developers need from the non-technical people around them
    • Go over the output of developers. What does it mean to own code, and how much is it worth?
    • Investigate the idea of technical quality

              This 2-hour workshop is delivered in person in Melbourne CBD and will include easy-to-understand theory, a lot of discussion, case studies and hands-on activities. You don’t need to bring anything along, but can bring a laptop or notepad and pen for notes if you wish.

              ABOUT YOUR FACILITATOR

              Craig Ambrose

              Craig has been building software for two decades, mostly for startups, and is now a Lead Developer at Cogent. He’s worked with product teams all around the world, and likes to think he can speak to normal humans as well as to developers. Don’t be fooled though, he’s unashamedly a geek, and spends his spare time reading science fiction and building period furniture reproductions.
