Powering a Lean Startup With Drupal

Click here to watch Powering a Lean Startup With Drupal.

This session is a case study about how Drupal can be leveraged to create successive business models that build on one another to create success, regardless of how you define it. We're going to discuss how the technical and marketing advantages of Drupal, as well as step outside of Drupal and look at the big picture. How does spinning up a startup impact normal life? How can you fight entropy and keep on top of everything that's going on?

Chris Shattuck is the creator of BuildAModule, a Drupal training site used by thousands of universities, fortune 500 companies, non-profits and freelancers around the world. He's heard repeatedly about how difficult it is to make the transitions from employee to freelancer, and from freelancer to business owner. Gems from over a decade of experience building a thriving company is distilled into this short session.

+1 for this. Would love to hear you talk about it.

This sounds like a great topic for DrupalCon.

Demand for Drupal developers is exploding, many former employees are now freelancers, and freelancers are now companies with staffs. Anything to avoid the potholes is going to be valuable.

I like this topic idea because it expands on the technology and provides insight into lessons learned starting a new business. +1

I would love to go to this event. It would be very interesting the lessons we could learn.

Good one.. Would definitely attend

Looking forward to your talk Chris! Many Thanks for all of your work over the last year and, I think, that I am a better programmer for it! - Cheers.
