Drew and James open the show with a hello to the new listeners on BetaKit. If you ever wondered how to say BetaKit, or GIF, then keep listening. There is also a discussion on the events that occurred the last week in the YVRDev slack, and why there are more dev slacks now. The guest this week our guest is Tim Abdulla, co-founder of Rise (formerly PaySavvy).
Tim Abdulla, co-founder of Rise (formerly PaySavvy), joins us on the show to talk about working with family, growing to 60 people, not hiring a-holes, and dealing with "not-so-micro-services".
Do you have an event we should include? Do you have an opinion on something we discussed? We would love to hear your feedback or talk about your meetup.
