Joel Worrall is a software architect and consultant. Formerly VP of Engineering for a mid-sized software company, in 2009 he joined forces with the children’s charity CURE International.
He now serves as the VP of cure.org because Vice President of Technology, Marketing, and Communications doesn’t fit on a business card.
Be Smart, Get Things Done, and Change the World!
The IT used to solve the world’s big problems deserves to be the best. That’s a belief that – three years ago – inspired a small team of software architects and entrepreneurs to join an international medical charity called CURE to use their skills to literally help crippled children walk. By applying software business and marketing principles and through partnership with platforms like WordPress and Google Apps, the way a global nonprofit “does business” can be transformed – from fundraising to employee communication to even inside the operating theatre. Nonprofits deserve better than the software industry has previously offered *and* vise versa; this talk will hopefully inspire charities and software professionals alike to think about how we can better engage each other to change the world.
BUSINESS OF SOFTWARE – FOR PEOPLE BUILDING GREAT SOFTWARE BUSINESSES.
This year will be the 7th Business of Software, a three day conference for founders who want to build sustainable, profitable software businesses. BoS has always been a special conference for our delegates and we want to keep it special.
Attendance is restricted to just 400 attendees in 2013 and we have 200 places taken and the next 100 tickets (as of April 20th) will be sold at the second Early Bird Rate.
If you want to see all of the action from Business of Software 2012, the videos of the talks are available in one place now:
