38: Interview with Barry Schwartz Co-Founder & CEO of Rusty Brick

Fantastic interview with Barry Schwartz, co-founder with his twin brother Ronnie of Rusty Brick! Go behind the scenes with what went into developing the ArtScroll Shas App. Learn about some of the 30 Jewish Apps that they created as a service for the community. Have an idea for an App that can benefit the Jewish Community? Let them know and they just might build it! They have been in business since 1994 (Yes, 22 years!) which they started in High-School. They have some huge clients you have heard of such as Pitney Bowes, MTV, and Viacom and have a team of 20 people (mostly in house) ready to make your vision a reality! ShulCloud is one of their more successful software projects that they built and own and now they have just announced the launch of The Jewish Ad Network and a Kosher Restaurant Open Table+ App is also in the works!
