Idea to launch in days. Executed Python-style.

Speaker: Mike Jones

There's lots of ways to get an idea built these days with new frameworks and "best practices" every time you refresh HackerNews. This talk will detail how the Western Cape Labs team built a new service from scratch in days powered by the Flask framework paired with selected items in rest of their familiar tool kit like Bootstrap and Vumi Go to make something useful and beautifully simple.

The talk will also touch on the business challenges of building products and services in South Africa that people actually use (and pay for), not just admire.

Return to schedule.
