I’ve been an entrepreneur since high school when I was a partner in a mobile DJ company with Mitch over at Sensory Metrics. And, in the business I’m in (software development, engineering and consulting) I run into a ton of people every day.
But every now and then, you run into someone pretty impressive – who shares my ideas and ideals in software engineering and development – and who’s also doing some pretty cool entrepreneurial stuff. Stephane over at FollowSteph.com is one of those guys. He’s built a decent business selling his property management software – an app that is being used by everyone from people who own one property – to cities – to manage tons of sites.
Steph and I had a nice talk recently – covering JoelOnSoftware.com, development environments and procedures, daily builds, Story-based development, Subversion, and on and on. Where I’m normally the mentor in such things, I kept having to run over to my PC to make notes about some of the cool technologies Steph was recommending (NSIS, CruiseControl). I even found that one of the reviews of a Help Desk package (HelpSpot) I’ve been considering was written by Steph!
Steph also understands the power of blogging, and has built a respectable following for his blog – following along on his entrepreneurial journey.
