Nebraska Code Follow-up

by Doug Durham 3/20/2015

We were overwhelmed by the attendance and response to the presentation we gave at the 2015 Nebraska Code conference on how we approach product development at Nebraska Global / Don’t Panic Labs. It was great to have so many people interested in what we do and how we do it.

Afterwards, we were asked by several people if they could get a copy of our slide deck for their reference.To that we say, “But of course!” You can download it here.
