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.

    Addictive

    Realtively short and lively. Reading it causes addiction. The advice in the book needs to be contrasted and weighted but it is in general very useful.

    Un buon libro denso di consigli su come avviare una impresa online rimanendo semplici, agili e concentrati solo su quello che conta veramente.

    Dall'esperienza di 37 Signals (Basecamp, Rails ...)

    Ett måste om du jobbar med någon form av affärsutveckling och nätet. Det behöver inte nödvändigtvis vara med programmering, som är bokens utgångspunkt, då den ger bra idéer om hur man ska jobba för att jobba smart, snabbt och med låga kostnader.
