Taste of IT 2023 Recap

We had a blast sponsoring and speaking at Technology First’s Taste of IT conference earlier this month. From connecting with industry leading professionals, to presenting on how to lead software teams to proven success, to eating lots of homemade bread, it was a sweet time! If you were unable to attend our presentation at the event, read some of the highlights and key takeaways.


Just because it is Spooky Season doesn’t mean your current software project needs to be scary too. In the shadowy world of software development, the most frightening horror stories aren’t those about ghosts, zombies, and monsters – but rather, missed deadlines, overrun budgets, and never-ending quality issues. Zoinks!


If your current software project feels like a never-ending road trip where you’re continuously missing exits (release dates) and having to reroute, we can help. With our project navigation service, you will never have to ask, “how much longer?” or “how much more money?” again. Know where your project is at, where it’s going, and how much time, money and effort it will take to get there in real-time.


On-Time Software Development

No matter the size or scale of your software projects, you likely rely on one or more third-party vendors to get the job done.  But, if you’re not writing quality criteria into your contracts, you might be stuck overpaying when they under-deliver.
