I’m speaking soon at Wharton Web Conf and as I prepare, I’d love to get more personal experiences on how technical decisions are made, specifically about choosing frameworks. Here’s a little questionnaire below, but if you have more to say, please email me! If the form isn’t playing nicely, here’s the direct link. Loading…
