Testimonials

This course was made for founders looking to hire developers and Ryan also stated that developers probably wouldn't find much use in it. Although I'm a developer, my end goal has started and always been "founder" so I found his lessons insightful for future use cases. In fact, I always thought about how hiring my first developer would go before I actually learned to code myself.

This short course is a must-see for all non-tech founders who are looking to work with technical talent in the future. Taking this course has given me the chops to write a solid spec for my projects saving me unwanted frustration and misunderstanding with engineers. I can now confidently vet, manage and hire the right team for the right projects without any wasted resources!
