They were calling us (Thursday, 5pm) because they had designed a webpage for some startup, but the RoR developer hired by the startup didn’t finish the work and disappeared. The real challenge is that the website needed to be shown to investors in a demo on next Friday (in less than 24 hours!). We took a moment to...

 

MVP means Minimum Viable Product and it’s a core component of Lean Startup methodology [1]. An MVP is not a minimal product [2]. The technique involves the development of a product or website with the sufficient features to satisfy early adopters.This subset of possible customers are thought to be more forgiving, more likely to give feedback, and able to grasp a product vision from an early prototype or marketing information [3].
