Hug it out: Why business and development should be fwbs

We are delighted to have Arlin Schaffel of Noodlecake Studios and Chris Dejong from Point2 here to talk to us about the interplay between development and business.

We hear it all the time; "Business people just don't get code." Or how about: "We just stick the developers in a corner and let them crank out the software." Sometimes, it seems that there's more that divides us than brings us together.

Chris and Arlin are going to show us why that is all complete rubbish. Why business and developers need each other, and how they're actually working towards the same goals.

Even better, they're going to give us practical tips on how developers and business people can not just get along, but kick ass, together!

As before, there will be a cash bar. The prices are basically cost recovery prices, so bring your loonies and twonies. Also, pizza.

    For a business that either has in-house programmers or offers software programming services this meetup would have likely been very relevant and worthwhile. For businesses that are not primarily in software programming businesses or have in-house software programmers for support....it was not as valuable. As a business professional that does not deal much with software developers it would have been a great opportunity to showcase the advantages and steps in choosing a reputable programming company to work with when those opportunities did arise!

    100% biased, so I can't give an accurate measurement, but it was rad... ;)

    Very valuable discussion. Basically comes down to respecting your co-workers- personally and professionally

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
