At Vol Court this year, we had a lot of non-technical people wanting to develop web-based or mobile applications, but they needed to connect with a developer to help the idea become a reality. It’s a lot more difficult to make those connections than anyone expects.
One of our Memphis colleagues has written a great blog on why these connections are so hard to make. Interestingly, he suggests that using the process we teach in Vol Court is a way to make those connections happen faster and with deeper commitment.
