Today we talk to Curtis Herbert about his iOS app Slopes and his work to bring it to Android. Curtis shares the story of hiring and firing an Android developer and the effect that this year’s weather and pandemic had on revenue. Then we dig into the risks of continuing development on the Android version, and his current thinking on whether to postpone the project.
