Getting Started
The goal is for you to bring your idea to life in 50 hours or less. Here are roughly the steps (these are just guidelines). Some of these steps can be done in parallel. The idea is to simulate the activities of an early stage startup in an accelerated mode.

  1. Coming up with an idea
  2. Pitching to the group
  3. Recruiting a team
  4. Ideation and Validation - Identifying the customer, market, some rough sizing
  5. Sketching a User Interface 
  6. Identifying the core features for the first functional prototype, and  defining mini-milestones 
  7. Working on each mini-milestone and getting some early feedback
In addition to these seven steps, as a community we will do the following
  1. Buddy Testing
  2. Review and Feedback

We will describe each step in more detail
