Meet LA's top dev shops, who'll describe key things you need to think about or ask when you hire someone to build your website, app, or B2B SaaS platform. We will discuss interplay of product features, cross-platform use, launch, design, budget, scale, and more. We will also discuss how to avoid scope creep, streamline communication on a project, and keys to successful launch and ongoing maintenance. We will focus on needs of funded startups and companies with development budgets, and include a few considerations for just-started startups. The event will also include a reverse pitch, where companies will discuss their real immediate project need for 5 minutes, with speakers responding with their solution, or questions/advice.
