How to get your tech built

Dan Sofer, Founders and Coders

1. Start with a clear view of the problem

but don't anticipate the solution

2 Before you build anything, test your assumptions

by talking to your users

3. By all means outsource the tech

but not the product management

4. Carve out time to learn

attend a design hop

sign up for Tech for Better

5 Build incrementally

seek value at every step

6 Test, test, test

with users,

at every step

7. Communicate effectively

use tools like GitHub or Trello,

avoid email

8. Try not to get locked in

get your developers to document everything

9. Set a launch date early

nothing is ever perfect,

be prepared to (soft) launch before you think you are ready
