In this episode, I talk to Tracy Lee. Tracy is the CEO and co-founder of This Dot Labs, a widely successful dev shop. She is also a speaker, conference organizer, and blogger.

We talk about:

  • how she dared to start her first start-up as soon as right out of college,
  • how she learned to program and fall in love with JavaScript and the community,
  • how she founded a successful development shop,
  • her advice in terms of a marketing-driven versus product-driven startup launch.
