What's your full name?

Risa Gu

Please introduce yourself. Tell us what you do and how it relates to tech startups. Also, please use a real profile photo. Thanks!

Previous PM at TpT. Currently freelancing and looking for opportunities to join a team to continue build things.

What are some things you've built? What clever features or challenging solutions are you proud of?

My personal website (still in progress). I did it because I want to dig under the hood and learn everything about building a website.

Have you experienced building something that did not work out? What do you wish you had known earlier?

Yes. I managed the development of a feature that ended up buggy. It touched too many components. If I would do it all over again, I would break it down into even smaller iterations, and actually understand the logics that we were using in the code (part of it was due to poor documentation and logics on the development side).

Are you open to being a featured guest? If you're a technologist or founder working on an interesting product or company we'd love for you to come and share your story.
