This is the first of a series of talks by local innovators on the topic of what it takes to succeed in the modern digital startup economy. If you have ever considered bootstrapping a startup company, this series is for you. Our first speaker is a bit of a legend among programmers. Scott Smith created coderbits, an intelligent portfolio site for developers and designers, and then sold it to Appirio to power their topcoder platform. Scott has certainly succeeded in this marketplace and continues to innovate and build new ideas. Come out to hear Scott talk about what it took to succeed and the struggles, triumphs, high and low points of his journey to success with the coderbits platform and beyond.
After the talk we will be moving over to Commonwealth to hang out as a community.
