The Promise and Pitfalls of Outsourcing Technology Development

Where: District Hall Providence

When: November 14

If technology is your secret sauce, can it really be entrusted to a third-party? Offshore development holds great promise, but there are horror stories as well. Hear from Dave Durfee, founder of Bay Computer and adjunct professor at Brown University, and Aidan Petrie, founding partner of NEMIC (New England Medical Innovation Center) and co-founder of Ximedica, as they offer a primer based on decades of experience. Durfee and Petrie will explore such topics as:

  • When does paying more per hour actually save you money?
  • When does paying the lowest possible price for coding actually spell disaster?
  • How does intellectual property change the dynamic?
