Preparing For Sea: A Captain’s Guide For Shipping A Mobile Product
Captain Dan Shipton will be sharing stories straight from his logbook about his experiences shipping a mobile product. While swinging the lamp, he’ll discuss how to prepare your product for sea by focusing on foundational design first and avoiding feature creep. He’ll also cover how to make your design process more efficient, especially for future voyages.
The Captain will end his chat with lessons for navigating choppy waters, including the hazards of being mobile, how to approach testing, and the challenges of rejection. By the end of his talk, you’ll feel your sea legs kicking in–enough to batten down the hatches and cast off on your own mobile adventure.
