July Meeting - Peaks and Pitfalls in Creating Commercial Software

Speaker: Kendall Miller
Topic: Peaks and Pitfalls in Creating Commercial Software

Location: Heavy Seas Alehouse
1300 Bank St‎
Baltimore, Maryland 21231

Date: Wednesday, July 17th, networking begins at 6:30

Abstract:
Kendall Miller, Co-founder of Gibraltar Software (A Baltimore-based Independent Software Vendor) pulls back the curtain and talks about the challenges and difficult decisions that come along with creating a business around commercial software.
• Creating Product Strategy – One of these three doors is the path to greatness, the other two go nowhere. Guess which.
• Connecting with Customers – Trying to not be the best product no one ever heard of.
• Finding the Right Talent – Collecting the team to knock it out of the park
We’ll go through real examples from the history of our software products – things that have worked out and things that have gone awry. Sometimes comical, sometimes tragic – it’s never boring when you’re building your reputation and your company.
