Every year, many students have ideas for web-based businesses but no real tech background, and they begin to consider how much they really need to understand “coding,” what specifically they should learn, and how best to learn it. They also wonder what they need to understand to manage a technical team and are often frustrated by their attempts to find and work with developers, especially those in off-shore locations. Moderated by Professor Mike Roberts, this panel will feature some students who have tackled these issues as they built their businesses. Co-sponsored by the Rock Center and Harvard i-lab.
