I recently gave a talk at 1871 titled "Working with Developers as a Non-Technical Person." Below is an abstract of the talk, which will appear again at 1871 in the future. I also wanted to make the slides available, which can be found here.
BENEFITS OF ATTENDING:
-Learn & understand technical terminology so you can understand what your developers mean when they use industry lingo.
-Understand available technologies & when/why you should consider using each.
-Learn how to define scope & requirements in a way that will communicate your product vision to developers.
-Learn how to communicate with developers in a way that keeps you in the loop, but isn't disruptive.
