This was a talk from The Business of Software I enjoyed quite a bit. In this talk, Balsamiq's CEO, Peldi Guilizzoni, talks about the jumps, sacrifices and rewards of starting a new venture in the world of technology and software. Every entrepreneur should watch this video:
Warning: It's an hour-long video, but well worth it!
I'm starting a new project/product now. Let's see how it goes, I have very high expectations with this new product and I'll let things slip thru as it takes shape. I still have to make a new company for it, so I can get some tax benefits too. I keep postponing the company creation thing for tomorrow and then for tomorrow. One more time, I'll do it tomorrow (and this time I'll really do it). I'll kick things up with .NET 4.0 and some Entity Framework. This is my first time working with the ADO.NET entity framework and I like very much what I've seen so far. Initially I thought to use something different from .NET, like RoR (Ruby) or Django, the Python Web framework; but I ended up going back to the land I know the best: .NET world. The reason was simply the speed at which I can work and produce code is important at this time, since I'm the only one writing code on this thing.
I'll try to keep posting about my progress here and the new challenges I face as I move forward.
