About this Episode

Is something bugging you? Need to get away from everything? Derrick can’t wait to once again ride rugged waters on Minnesota’s many lakes. Not unlike startups, it isn’t always easy to stay afloat when under pressure.

Heeelllloooo! Are you there? Still interested? Ask and you shall receive. Ben shipped a major feature for Tuple. Drumroll please…video support. I’ll Tuple you!

Today’s Topics Include:

  • Sensible Deprivation: Some suffering can be good; makes you appreciate things more
  • Get Over It, and Gain Confidence: Design and develop video support prototype
  • Official Launch Date for Tuple: Some time in August; Ben’s still trying to shake the perception he’s charging people for beta product
  • Security Vulnerabilities Happen: Ben’s reaction to recent issues with Zoom and Slack
  • Mistakes Ben Might Make: Free Tuple trial to increase conversion and expansion
  • Derrick’s Building Product: Initial version of StaticKit and form collection component
  • Security ROI: Short-circuiting pushback with strong write-up for SOC 2 and ISO 27001
  • 3+ Tuple team? Someday, Ben wants to hire a part-time designer and developer
