Ben is the founder of Ocelot Uproar, a company focused on training and building products loved by users. Ben enjoys looking for the next challenges to solve, usually over an occasional beer. Ocelot Uproar recently launched Katacoda, an interactive learning environment for software engineers.
Everyone has one idea that could be the next big thing, either a revenue generating startup, or a side-project as a passive income. Generating revenue is hard, but also a rewarding aspect of building something successful. In this session, Ben will share his experience of building Katacoda, an interactive learning platform for software developers. The aim is to help attendees get started by providing practical and real world advice on both the product and technical level about how they can take a high-level idea and turn it into reality.
