From napkin plan to mega-zillion product. About technology, usability, entrepreneurship and start-ups.

Hello there! Thank you for stopping by my blog.

A Beginning

I’ve been planning to start a blog for over a year now, but having too much work and giving this a low priority had its toll. Finally I found the time to go ahead and do it, and here we are… you reading this, me planning my next posts…

A sense of purpose

As a freelance CTO (Chief Technology Officer), I work with many start-up companies and entrepreneurs, spanning many domains and industries. I get to examine and learn interesting new stuff all the time and I’d like to share. I plan to write analysis, tips, insights and pitfalls from my day to day experiences. It should be fun.

I have a lot to say, and if you are interested in my thoughts and knowledge, I suggest you click the subscribe button… thanks!

A short summary of my life

By the age of 17 I had started my own computer games development company. I’ve served as a software developer in the Israeli Military (a Mamram programmer in the Navy, to be exact). I completed my Computer Science degree on weekends. I worked for several tech companies, including IBM Research and a couple of start-ups, starting as a software developer and ending as VP R&D. I got married, have three daughters, and two cats. In recent years I’ve been working as a freelancer/consultant, mostly in the role of a hired gun CTO. I had the pleasure of working with more than a dozen start-up companies over the years. There are very few domains, technologies, programming languages or platforms that I did not happen to touch in some way or another (I dare you to challenge me!). I love learning and I make it habit to learn several new things each week. For a more complete overview, check out my LinkedIN profile or my (not up to date updated) web site, or my company.

Thanks for getting this far down the page. See you on my next post. :)

    Doron, Congratulations on the new blog. I look
    forward to your future posts. That’s a great attitude in how you like to be challenged especially people are in doubt. The biggest motivation is when one is challenged and doubt by others only to a point when the doubters expectations of you were outperformed. God Bless!
