In September, Denny Cherry (MVP) spoke to San Gabriel Valley user group on the topic of SQL Server Indexing for the .NET Developer. We have a great line up of speakers in coming months including Rob Walling (MVP, SoftwarebyRob.com), Daniel Egan (Microsoft) and Volkan Uzun. I encourage you to attend and get the most out of these informative events. Best of all, they are free!
For our meeting this month, we welcome back our user group co-founder, author, speaker, developer turned successful entrepreneur Rob Walling to discuss “Turning Your Idea into a Software Product”. Our October meeting is with esteemed Rob Walling on Wed, 20th Oct with the topic of “Turning Your Idea Into a Software Product”. Rob is a serial entrepreneur, a great developer and a wonderful friend. He is very well known in the software start-up community and I highly recommend his talk for everyone who is looking to micropreneurship.
In this meeting, Rob Walling takes a detailed look at the nuts and bolts of launching a software product while working full-time. Topics include: our beloved startup myths, what you didn't know about taking outside investment, the reason most products never launch, the most likely reason your product fail, how to evaluate a product idea without spending money, and the 3 best approaches to marketing your product (hint: none of them are social media).
Rob Walling is a Microsoft MVP in ASP.NET and a ten-year veteran of software entrepreneurship. Rob owns several revenue-generating products including ASP.NET invoicing software DotNetInvoice and runs the first online membership community for developer entrepreneurs and microISVs, called the Micropreneur Academy. Rob blogs to about 10,000 monthly readers at Software by Rob and is the author of numerous technical articles for asp.netPRO magazine, asp101.com, dotnetbips.com and others.
In Nov we have Volkan talking about Identity management with WCF in his straight up no-fluff-all-code style.
