It’s DockerCon this week…

A16Z U.S. Technology Funding — What’s Going On?

What’s “ROI”?

  • I’ve been trying to figure this out of late.
  • Saving money on one option vs. another?
  • Creating growth?
  • Proof that you made a good choice?
  • ROI = (Gains – Cost)/Cost; e.g. ($20,000 – $10,000)/$10,000 = 100% ROI (yes, I made it a percentage, math nerds)
  • Theory: ROI is only a useful metric for comparing costs of things, and if the gain is well understood and predictable.

Misc.
