From Startup to Corporate (The Kenya story…)
November 13 @ 17:30 - 19:00 SAST
I have had the good fortune of being able to develop an entirely new product, from scratch, within only one team. How did that good fortune work out, and which lessons did I take from it? – A slightly longer story.
Few of us will have the opportunity to be on a project to seed a start-up in an exotic foreign country; a project to create an innovative offer with a direct impact on open market customers… this is mostly a story about that exact scenario, and what happened to one software engineer, the lessons he learned about people, about teams and about a constantly shifting landscape.
What did it all mean in terms of team structures? Which are The Focal Points when focus is constantly morphing? These and many more questions will NOT be answered in this exciting, mesmerizing, stay-up-all-night and tell-all-your-friends triumph, story of loss and obsession, survival and self-invention, and the ruthless machinations of fate in this blockbuster-of-the-year rollercoaster ride.
Also, there may be complimentary snacks served.
