Apple is launching a search engine called “Spotlight,” at a pace of 3% a quarter -- if you have an iPhone or Mac you’ve been using it for a while!Google has gone from unstoppable to “about to be stopped,” in the minds of the smartest folks in the industry. Search ads are Google’s cash cow; unfortunately, for them, it seems that Google is not advancing the platform (outside of slamming massive amounts of “paid inclusion”).“Paid Inclusion” is basic...

Slack has grown rapidly since launching publicly in 2014 racking up 10, 000 new users each week is mind-blowing. With 705,000 daily active users it just felt that Testlauncher's first official public integration had to be Slack. At first, when reaching out to read and understand the capabilities of Slack's API, within 10 seconds I knew that this was going to be a breeze with so many PHP wrappers to choose from. But, the first 2 wrappers were outd...

Story
Tagline
Founder Testlauncher.com
Introduction
After working with over 100 startups with funding totalling more than $10M as a Full-stack Freelance Sr. Lead Web Developer and Consultant I decided to take the plunge and bootstrap my own startup ... Testlauncher.com in 2014. 

The largest issue I found after 15 years in the Software / Custom Development and Technology industry was the lack of quality testing often completed by the developers and/or founders themselves resulting in unprofessional looking and functioning websites which often hurts user acquisition and user retention rates (churn) - all silent killers. 

So, I'm on a mission to improve the QA landscape with a product I built that is integrated with a number of reliable technology partners that can reduce a companies overall QA budget in addition to increasing revenue by uncovering meaningful daily insights.
