In 2019, the failure rate of startups was 90%. Technology Startups (aka. Tech Startups) had the highest rate of failures at 63%. One of the causes of this high rate in tech startups can be wrong technical decisions and practices. In this session, I describe 6 technical tips that can help tech startups truly become “Lean” to pave the way for success. The 6 technical tips will cover areas such as programming languages, development platforms, cloud-native architectures, testing, and big data. The session will conclude with BONUS technical tips for all startups and not just tech startups. These bonus tips will prove very useful for: 1- Startups wishing to launch new apps with very little experience in software development OR 2- Companies wishing to initiate startup projects as part of their digital transformation. I highly recommend this session for entrepreneurs who are about to start developing an innovative idea. It is also recommended for startups that have already started their journey and wish to improve.
