Friday Tech Talk: Challenges & Solutions for Software Beyond Borders

Building software to function across international borders takes more work than simply sending the micro-copy to a translater.


What do different cultures need out of their UI and functionality? How do environmental factors play out when building for worlds far different than our own?


MAC OS developer (and SDW Tech Talk regular) Douglas Welton of Einstein's Legacy will walk us through a survey of the language, cultural, and environmental issues that make building software for international distribution "more fun".


This presentation provides an overview of the issues involved in creating software that "just works" in a multi-national marketplace. In particular, Douglas will focus on the structural, implementation and cultural considerations that have to be integrated into the software development process in order to achieve successful results.

    My name is David Newman and I am an experienced tax attorney/business executive specializing in high tech companies. I am also a senior advisor to Secure Strategy Group, which is a boutique banking and advisory firm that backs emerging high tech companies and provides capital and M&A to fund the growth of our clients. Our advisory practice helps to position and build their business. We build the business by providing, if there is a need, organizational and sales expertise, CFO expertise and tax expertise. The basic objective is to position the high tech firm to either go public or be acquired by a large high tech player. Our primary focus is on small high tech firms with modest sales and interesting products or innovation. We have important connections with potential acquisition partners both within the United States and in foreign countries.

    I would love to meetup with anyone in the group who feels that the above mentioned service could be of benefit to his or her firm.
