Pitch to Developers Message Board › Post Event Question - Group Composition

Post Event Question - Group Composition

A former member
Post #: 6
This is a post event question for members that go to this evening's event.

What did you think of the group composition?
I ask because I've attempted to limit the membership to basically just Developers and Entrepreneurs that are ready to pitch.
Would you like a more diverse makeup (Marketers, Designers, etc.)?
Would you like a more focused group (just developers and presenters)?
Does it seem good the way it is?

Also, please let me know if you were a Developer, Entrepreneur, or Presenter

Hi Alon,

I signed up initially as a developer, but have since started my own project.

I like the mix and the target audience. When I was looking for something to work on, I saw a number of posts around the net that complained about how hard it is to find a tech co-founder or initial developer. This group serves that sweet spot nicely.

From my perspective, it was good to be there as a potential future presenter (still not sure if I want to bring on a co-founder). But I also chatted with a few of the presenters wearing my developer hat, just to offer insight or to hear more about what they're doing. In one case, I have a developer friend that I'm going to contact since he may be interested in one of the projects. The point I'm trying to make is that I wouldn't limit to developers that are looking and entrepreneurs that are ready to pitch. Other entrepreneurs and non-available developers may have something to add to the conversation. (At least, I hope I had something useful to add. wink)

From the point of view of efficiency, limiting the meeting to entrepreneurs and developers is good - even that is gets pretty diverse inasmuch as coding skills are specialized. e.g. I'm currently working in Rails, having dumped PHP & Python and don't have any interest in mobile (probably wrong, but . . .)

I think that there is an illusion that it would be more efficient for Entrepreneurs to have all the potential resources in the same room at the same time - like a buffet. Specialized meetings will allow them to be more focused on their needs in specific areas - which should help them link up with the correct people. If an Entrepreneur can't focus on what's needed, then they're not much use.

Again, I write code
