How to Speak Technology

Cloud. Back-end. Front-end. Database. Server. API. What does it all mean? Phil Greenwald from Code Undercover is back again, this time to teach us how to “speak tech.” In this workshop, you’ll learn all the basics behind how to talk to developers and what you should speak about to get your website, app, or other type of software built. Topics discussed will include:

* Back-end vs Front-end
* Databases and Servers
* Open-source
* Apps vs. Websites
* Language vs. Framework
* Abstraction
* API’s and Libraries
and what the heck is a STACK?

This workshop is perfect for any non-technical founder and other aspiring entrepreneurs who need a primer to help them communicate with, evaluate, and manage developers.

For VIP teams, Harvard students, and Harvard alumni/staff/faculty only.
