Tech Clinic #4 in partnership with CodeBase: Developing your product

April 26, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

This workshop, led by Julie Grieve, for early stage female/non-binary founders will focus on developing your idea and experimenting to prove customer value, so that you can start to turn it into a viable software product.

We’ll cover the following topics:

  • What problem are you solving? Ensuring you have a clear problem statement to use for hypothesis testing & development
  • Will it actually work? Thinking critically about your solution and testing components in real life
  • How to talk about it and work with developers? Using the language of product development and understanding the product development cycle

This will be a practical and interactive workshop, with lots of opportunities to work with other founders and gain practical, actionable feedback on your ideas. You will leave the session with a clear idea of the next steps you need to take to turn your idea into a product you can build and take to market.

Preparation: Please bring along a problem statement that describes your idea.

Format: This is a hybrid session at CodeBase Edinburgh, and you can attend in person or online depending on your preference. Please just let us know how you plan to attend when you sign up using ‘Attend In-person’ or ‘Attend online’ tickets.

This hybrid event will take place in person at CODEBASE Edinburgh and can also be joined virtually by selecting “attending online” when registering via the AccelerateHER Eventbrite.
