Build It

There is this idea you keep telling friends about… you know it is promising because a day or two after you mention it, they circle back via email “I’ve been thinking about X and it would be pretty cool, any progress with the website / app?”

Or perhaps you just found some new tech that seems promising… no justification to implement it at work, but you are itching to take it for a test drive.

Well sometimes you just have to build it. 

Put it out in the world. Even a rough prototype. And if it is interesting… it might take on a life of it’s own. Who knows were it might lead… a startup? a new job? fame? fortune? Often enough big things have pretty humble beginnings.

Still on the fence? Fine, let us sweeten the pot. How about you build something awesome this weekend (anything you want) and we (care of LinkedIn Hackday) give you a new Macbook Air (assuming it is the most awesome thing built at the hackday). I’ll be the judge of awesome (well a few of us)… but I can already tell, what you are going to build is awesome!

This week LinkedIn Hackday comes to Toronto. It is free. You keep your code. The only rule? Start development Friday (advance planning is fine).

    Totally agree … but sometimes you should do some market studies and in many cases that will give you as much validation about your idea as building it.
