Interested in attracting software developers as customers? Portland’s Adam DuVander could write a book about it. And did.

Chat with the coauthor of The Startup Community Way, the follow up to Brad Feld’s Startup Communities

One of those books is Startup Communities by Brad Feld, in which he describes his “Boulder Thesis” around how startup communities are built. I reread it about every six months or so.
