By Matthew Rideout, Founder of Strict Chef & Owner of Rideout
To Matthew Rideout, app development isn’t for technical people – it’s for those who are passionate about making an impact, who are willing to put in the painstaking work of customer discovery and market research. After finding that dietary changes eliminated his symptoms of Ankylosing Spondylitis, Rideout discovered his passion for helping others use food as medicine (a concept he never before believed in), and built Strict Chef.
In his TechTalk, Rideout will review everything that goes into developing an app, the cutting-edge tech powering Strict Chef, and making an app into a business – it’s so much more than code. He’ll also discuss his background, struggles with autoimmune disease, and his vision for Strict Chef’s future.
