Things to Avoid in Selecting an Executive Job with Dave Kellogg

Buckle your seatbelts for a fast-paced conversation with Dave Kellogg. Dave and I first met back in the early 80s at Ingres, when I was a pre-sales engineer and Dave was a technical support rep. We’ve each spent over 25 years in enterprise software, in mixed roles that involve both technology and sales & marketing. We reconnected recently and met up up in Chicago at ParkerGale’s “intergalactic headquarters” for a pretty broad-ranging conversation about a recent blog post that Dave wrote (Things to Avoid in Selecting an Executive Job at a Startup) along with a lot of interaction about differences between PE-land and VC-land. Come have a listen -- where else are you going to hear the phrase "Axe Battle of Differentiation"?

CEO Interview with Conrad Clemson of EditShare

Do you really need continuous delivery to write production software?

More madness with the Mad Scotsman, Alan Williamson and special guest Tom Shore. We talk about the just how much automation and software tooling do you need to write applications. The big social media software companies would claim that nothing short of continuous delivery is enough. But is this really necessary for smaller companies that are delivering enterprise-class applications?
