Build your startup product using Rapid Product Development

Description

Synopsis

“Building the right product requires systematically and relentlessly testing that vision to discover which elements of it are brilliant, and which are crazy" - Eric Ries, Lean Startup

You have a startup idea sitting in the drawer. Perhaps your idea is to build an AirBNB for photographers, to find the best shopping deal in the town, or as simple as a restaurant management system. You want to build the product, get it to the market and show it to your users and picturing them using your app happily. But, you don't have a co-founder, and you don't have the technical know-how.


If that's the problem you are currently facing, this workshop is for you, whether you are working on a project and wish to present to stakeholders, want to gather early feedback from users, or iterate faster to raise funds. This 2 days action packed workshop will guide you on how to develop your product rapidly, to build, and to deploy the web applications to servers. We will show you the quickest ways to turn your idea into reality, using some freely available online resources.
