You’ve got a great idea and you’ve started building and it’s a race to get an MVP so you can test your idea. And what happens when it works? What are your next steps? How big is your technical debt?  

No matter the maturity of a startup, we often cut corners that eventually have to be dealt with. In this session, Spencer Kimball, CEO and co-founder of Cockroach Labs will talk through his personal journey across a series of startups as he dealt with his mountains of technical debt.

We will talk through his personal experience with these startup issues:

  • The minimal viable tech stack for your MVP
  • Where it makes sense to cut corners
  • What next-gen tech will get you to MVP faster
  • How to start fast but still build for scale
  • The role of the database in all this, of course!

This conversation will be valuable for anyone working on an impactful project who wants to avoid future tech debt.

We will be giving away 5 physical copies of O’Reilly’s “CockroachDB: The Definitive Guide” during the session to those who come with the best questions. Currently only shipping to North America and Europe at this time.
