Event Description: 


 The driving force behind a web and tech business is often not a programmer, or software engineer however s/he can regularly have to make choices that require some level of technical know-how. This can range from what programming framework to use – is it Ruby, Joomla, Drupal, or PhP – to deciding what programmer to hire and how to keep them on target. It is their job to translate a project from the idea stages into a realistic plan that can be implemented within budget and on time.

For this event Jay will go through the various considerations needed to be taken when structuring and managing a team and a project. Topics covered will include:

  • Key components of software development management
  • Where to begin the recruitment process
  • What incentives start-ups have to offer
  • Due diligence 
  • Contracts 
  • Outsourced v’s in-house work
  • Agile software management
  • Web development management tools
  • Quality control
  • How to deal with problems when they arise 

Our speaker for this event will be: George Berkowski, Head of Product at Hailo.

Doors open at 6.00pm for a 6.30pm start, please arrive in good time so as not to disrupt the presentation. Drinks and snacks will be provided as we appreciate you'll probably have been working hard all day.
