We had 130 RSVPs for this Product Tank Dublin talk on software, strategy and product management. Held in the Custom House underground vaults that originally held whiskey and wine!
What: Four Laws of Software Economics
Where: Dogpatch Labs,CHQ Building Custom House Quay, Dublin Docklands
When: Thursday, April 7
There are some fundamental laws of software economics that should drive executive-level decisions about business and product strategies. It’s easy to forget them, or decide they don’t apply to our special situation. (Gravity’s not just a good idea, it’s the law.) We talked through a few:
- Your development team will never (ever) be big enough
- All of the profits are in the nth subscriber or copy
- Software bits are not the (whole) product
- You can’t outsource your strategy
Elicited a few laughs, a few cries, and some groans.
