Many #mtpcon speakers have offered advice on ways to build a product from scratch. Here are a few of the standout talks on the topic from recent years.
From pandemic to pingdemic – Building through uncertainty
This 2021 #mtpcon London talk from Randeep Sidhu – who is also delivering a keynote at #mtpcon London this year – describes the challenges of building the UK’s NHS Covid app – the fastest downloaded app in UK history, and one that was instrumental in helping to reduce the spread of Covid19 during the pandemic. It’s a talk full of fantastic advice: from managing stakeholders to using frameworks and sharing feedback.
Key takeaway: Hard to pick a key takeaway from so much interesting insight – when gathering feedback, create quality assets and multiple ways for people to share their insights.
Going from 0 to 1 in product discovery by Merci Grace
This #mtpcon SanFrancisco talk from one-time Head of Growth at Slack and angel investor Merci Grace offers an iterative framework to plan and execute the product discovery phase that provides value to your customer.
Key takeaway: Look out for ideas that your consumers can use on their own and focus on something that solves a problem your customer faces.
How to Find the Product by Tom Coates
In this 2018 #mtpcon San Francisco talk technologist Tom Coates says that while the outcome of putting a finished product into the world is fun, the experience of making things can be even more enjoyable. He runs through ways to bring focus to an idea and get enough information to have something to test.
