Shownotes

In this episode of the Thoughtful Entrepreneur, your host Josh Elledge speaks to the Chief Executive Officer of EmergeLabs, Brad Hunter. As software development continues to evolve, there is no doubt that AI is playing an increasingly important role. But what impact does it have on the industry? Brad Hunter, the President and Founder of EmergeLabs, shares his thoughts in a recent podcast episode. According to Brad, AI can be a valuable tool in software development, especially for chat GPT, which can quickly solve problems. However, he notes that AI is not taking over the industry, as some may believe. While it can assist with coding, it cannot replace the need for human expertise and a holistic approach to software development. Brad emphasizes the importance of taking a balanced approach to software development, combining technical skills with a broader understanding of business operations. This allows development teams to create a successful end product considering the client's entire business and long-term strategy. In addition to his insights on AI, Brad also highlights the importance of communication when working with development teams. He suggests that communicating directly with the developers can help avoid misunderstandings and frustration. Over-communicating in the beginning stages of a project is also crucial to ensure that everyone is on the same page.
