Becoming a better developer requires us to understand the business side of our solutions.  Therefore, this series of topics is highly valuable.  They also help our goal of becoming a better entrepreneur.  This first episode provides an overview of what to expect from the business-focused category.

Why Business-Focused?

One of the big complaints about developers is a lack of building solutions for the “real world.”  Thus, we want to spend time looking at how to tie our latest technical advances back to well-grounded business needs.  In the long run, this will help us avoid building solutions in an ivory tower.  This approach also helps us build solutions that sell.  Therefore, adding to our bottom line rather than purely an academic exercise.

Although our site starts out with a blog and a content business, this is not our only focus.  We will discuss the product and service-based businesses as well.  Our goal is to provide value every episode regardless of your entrepreneurial bias.  If you find this interesting, please share with your friends and subscribe to our podcast.
