Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. Tell us a little bit about your background, and ultimately what led you to co-found ZenHub?
Topic 2 - Let’s start by talking about what ZenHub delivers. We’re very interested in the potential of GitHub and the things it’s doing directy, but we’re also interested in this ecosystem that’s enhancing GitHub. * *
Topic 3 - What are some best-practices around road mapping and prioritizing activities that could be shared?
Topic 4 - What are some best-practices around allowing greater transparency of roadmaps with multiple teams? (what are the pros and cons)?
Topic 5 - ZenHub is an example of a toolset that's built entirely around GitHub capabilities. Do you think we'll begin to see more companies just built around GitHub and move away from externally-connected toolsets? * *
Topic 6 - Are most of your interactions with software companies, or are you also interacting with businesses whose primary focus is something other than being a software company?
