It's finally here, the end of season 1 of the podcast is upon us! To celebrate, Santa is bringing something special - entrepreneurship advice for all the would-be founders of the world, ages 1 to 92.
Brian Singer, co-founder & CPO of Nobl9, sits down with Dev Interrupted to help us close out season 1 with a conversation on what it takes to found your own company. Having founded a pair of companies, one of which he sold to Google, Brian has a deep understanding of what it takes to successfully found and scale a startup. More than that, he knows what VCs are looking for.
In addition to our conversation on entrepreneurship, we also discuss Service Level Objectives, the ins and outs of Nobl9’s SLO platform and why SLOs and error budgets will become commonplace approaches in the industry, much in the same way we practice Agile today.
From the entire team at Dev Interrupted, we want to give a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has supported us and continued on this journey with us. Producing this podcast every week has been an absolute pleasure and we are so thankful for the outpouring of support we have received this past year. Expect big things - and even bigger stories - in season 2 of the podcast.
Have a wonderful New Year, we’ll return on January 8th with a HUGE episode for the official start of season 2.
Episode Highlights Include:
- Why VCs don’t like single founder companies
- Scaling beyond the first 20 employees
- What are SLOs?
- Understanding when tech debt matters
- The reason sales is the #1 skill for an entrepreneur
