In this talk you'll learn how I have built and scaled apps and services that are used by millions of people.
Here's a short list of my successful services:
When I was 22 I built, scaled and sold Orangoo Spell, an Ajax based spell checker that could spell check 28 languages . Orangoo Spell has been used over 1billion times to spell check text for millions of users.
In 2007 I started Todoist, a powerful online based todo list. Today Todoist has more than 1.2million users and has helped people complete millions of tasks and projects. Right now Todoist has an awesome team of 15 working on it, including me.
From age 23 to 26 I co-founded and lead development of Plurk.com, a micro blogging network that is big in Asia-Pacific, especially Taiwan. Plurk has today over 10million users, 8 billion+ unique messages and a million+ dollar funding.
How and why did I start and grow these? And what did I learn in the process? In this talk I want to share my secrets with you. I think many hackers have the potential to create amazing services, you just need to unlock this ability.
