Event to build entrepreneurial software in 48 hours over a weekend

Over the last weekend, I participated in an event to build software product in two days and present it to investors at the end.

My goal of participating the event was to work on Ruby on Rails development and to get familiar with local start-up scene because they are the ones who are using Ruby on Rails most.

Our team lead was very professional in skills, knowledge and the manner he conducted business throughout the project. I was able to enjoy the development fully.

During the event, series of experts in business, entrepreneurship, and technology visited each team and gave us advices. It was very interesting to see how the project was being shaped as a result of this interaction and how the direction changed along the way.

The presentations by investors and accounting professional, etc. at the beginning of the event were very informative also. And I was able to meet various technical people during the event.

My goal was more than fulfilled.
