ProducT Driven Development
Code Confab is a collaborative partner helping you architect and build products that drive revenue.
We believe business goals come first, tools and processes second. We also believe that customers are more important than the technology. We believe that getting product-market fit before building a deep product or even a robust roadmap ensures that once built, the product will generate sustainable revenue.
We collaborate with you from product strategy to execution on the back end. Our work is strategic, focused on the architecture of the product or integration rather than being project management focused.
- Building products from scratch
- Integrating newly acquired products with existing ones
- Orphaned software where the technical lead is no longer involved
Who We Work With
We've done a number of projects which aim to transform and/or shift perception of industry. We love to build software that increases the quality of life for a particular community.
