Show Notes

Build a SaaS app!" they said... "It'll be great!" they said...it turns out, running an online service Is a big pain in the SaaS. In this talk I will tell you all about designing, building, selling, scaling, maintaining and supporting balsamiq.cloud, the online version of Balsamiq Wireframes. I'll focus on 'the things they don't tell you' and even give you the dirt about a massive data-loss incident from May 2018. Fasten your seatbelts, there will be turbulence!

Giacomo 'Peldi' Guilizzoni is a programmer turned entrepreneur, who founded Balsamiq in 2008 and has been learning how to run and grow the company ever since. He has spoken at Microconf a few times along the way, to share his learnings and, mostly, his mistakes. He still loves to code, when he's allowed to by his team. :)

The 2021 State of Independe SaaS Report

Comprehensive data about the state for bootstrapped (or mostly) founders and how to use the report to make meaningful change in 2021.   To access the full report, head over to https://stateofindiesaas.com.   For nearly a decade MicroConf has helped startup founders grow faster through access to world-class experts, and the world’s most trusted community of ambitious, bootstrapped and mostly bootstrapped founders. MicroConf has become the mothership for founders like yourself looking to learn and share strategies, tactics, advice, and inspiration.   The beauty of creating this 2nd report is our ability to draw comparisons from one year to the next. While the overall structure is very similar to last year, you’ll notice we’ve drawn comparisons wherever the data deviated to a point that it became interesting.   In addition, we’ve mixed up the visuals in many areas from simple bar and pie charts to now include word clouds and micro-infographics. The idea is to optimize the presentation of this information to help you understand it at a deeper level.   This all lines up with our mission to help you be successful, faster.   MicroConf Connect ➡️  http://microconfconnect.com Twitter ➡️  https://twitter.com/MicroConf E-mail ➡️  [email protected]   MicroConf 2021 Headline Partners   Stripe https://stripe.com Twitter ➡️ https://twitter.com/Stripe   Hey https://hey.com @heyhey ...
