From law to web apps

Working as a finance lawyer at a large firm, I soon developed desires to improve the efficiency with which lawyers operate. This talk describes how end-user need has driven the evolution of a legal web application, starting from learning to code, through the creation of simple Drupal Views, to making customised editable Views and finally ending up with a partially de-coupled JS application running off a RESTful API. This will be set in my experience of entrepreneurship and product-based work.
