Direct connect passion
23 February 2016 | by johnapplerSee all my reviews

This movie conveys so well the passion, energy and responsibility which is created when developers of products work directly for consumers of products.

Developers don't work for a boss in the way who theorizes about his view of what people want - they work for users who want their product.

The excitement of the financial gain is portrayed well by the real-time updates but so too is the associated product delivery responsibility.

Of particular interest was the "Freaker" product whose off-beat personality made him completely unable to obtain funding via traditional channels.

The developer / buyer connection displayed here portends well for this movement - loved the production !
