Paperback, 194 Pages
Ships in 3-5 business days.
Getting Real details the business, design, programming, and marketing principles of 37signals. The book is packed with keep-it-simple insights, contrarian points of view, and unconventional approaches to software design. This is not a technical book or a design tutorial, it's a book of ideas. Anyone working on a web app — including entrepreneurs, designers, programmers, executives, or marketers — will find value and inspiration in this book. 37signals used the Getting Real process to launch five successful web-based applications (Basecamp, Campfire, Backpack, Writeboard, Ta-da List), and Ruby on Rails, an open-source web application framework, in just two years with no outside funding, no debt, and only 7 people (distributed across 7 time zones). Over 500,000 people around the world use these applications to get things done. Now you can find out how they did it and how you can do it too. It's not as hard as you think if you Get Real.

Sep 11, 2009"Well worth the dollars" I outsource most of my programing needs, I often find it time consuming getting all my ideas across to my programmers in an efficient way. This book has made this easier, a lot easier. As stated it is not a technical book, it is a book of ideas and methodologies. Well worth the dollars if your involved in any type of web app programing (even non technical sides). Thanks Matt office chairs
