Great ideas for software are doomed if the requirements remain unclear. But where do you start? While a pre-defined template can offer important guidelines for your project, technical teams need more than just a template to successfully develop software. The best software starts with a conversation.

Eve’s first computer opened her eyes to the ways technology can connect people. For her, it’s a tool that can make the world a better place.
Since those early days in front of her family’s Gateway 486 computer, Eve has excelled in many roles — from Solutions Engineer Manager to Product Manager and Network Technician. She once led a team of developers to create a system facilitating the management of the second largest private network in the world, successfully juggling the requirements of ten stakeholders.
Eve brings the same energy to every challenge. At MentorMate, she ensures that project managers, designers, and developers provide pragmatic solutions that meet clients’ unique business needs. Eve advocates for women and girls in STEM-related fields as a board member of Technovation[MN] and is a judge for MN Cup competition.

TechnovationMN marked the second opportunity for young women to design, code and pitch mobile apps encouraged and critiqued by panels of industry professionals. I experienced it all from the judge’s panel.
There’s more to developing an app than choosing features and writing code that will bring the idea to life. There’s an important decision before all that. Who’s your target audience? Defining this group is critical to the success of any app.
