About the Talk

As technologists, we love to build things. And we sometimes forget that our customers (or potential customers) don’t care about what we’re building – they care about what they’re building, doing, or feeling. In this talk, we explore methodologies that help us continually focus on our customers’ needs, building just enough to learn and iterate toward their desired outcomes. Coming away from this, you’ll have a few more tools in the toolbox for your lean startup.
