01 - Birdhouses as a Service

Dan talks about switching to Docker, changing Nodewood's deploy methods, and about updating the Nodewood license. Steven brings us up to speed on consulting, learning about data science and ML/AI, and how to work that into a product. The episode wraps up with a frank discussion about the value you get from rapid iteration of business prototypes versus responsibilities to customers and employees.
