Tropo is a cloud communications platform for voice, SMS, and IM. In addition to the hosted service, we have opened the source of the core platform. In this session, we’ll talk about the lessons learned from running a cloud service and a parallel open source project. We did a lot wrong, and we got many things right. We’ll discuss what we’ve learned about product management, release management, marketing, and third party licensing.
Adam Kalsey has been an internet entrepreneur since 1995. He’s the Product Manager for Tropo and and a developer advocate at Voxeo, evangelizing Voxeo to developers and startups. He was a co-founder of IMified, where he created the leading platform for Instant Messaging applications, and joined Voxeo through the acquisition of IMified in June 2009.
