I was lucky enough to attend the 2013 Business of Software conference in Boston a couple weeks back. & I was lucky enough to go with the good folks from Formstack.

I learned a lot & I really hope I get to go back.

Here are a few lessons/thoughts/ideas I picked up.

1. Start small. Fail small. Fail fast.

2.  Make little bets – win or lose – learn from them & make more little bets.

3. Embrace skeptics; eject cynics.

4. Yesterday’s assumptions don’t hold up to today’s realities.

5. Many many rules & policies & guidelines can be boiled down to:                      Use Good Judgement.
