Has anyone been to a startup weekend before? As a Developer? Designer? Visitor?

http://startupweekend.org

I’m attending my first one shortly – will be pitching some ideas just for kicks – they probably wont get picked but it’ll be good to get some feedback. Looking forward to forming a team with complete randoms and having a massive coding party over the weekend.

I have a friend that is part of startupweekend.org and he helps organize them. I’ve been to a few of the pitches but haven’t had the time to participate yet. There are some great ideas that come through there and you won’t believe how much Mt. Dew and energy drinks get consumed!

You will have fun. You get to meet and work with some really smart people that have great ideas as well. Keep us posted on how you do and what you thought about it.

My startup idea didn’t get voted in the top 8 ideas :( but I’ll share it here a bit later.

I joined another team and we’re working on an app called “Foodifyhttp://foodify.launchrock.com

Share great meals and places to get them with your friends. Cook up a storm and make people jealous of your kitchen skills. Unlock achievements, go on ‘food quests’ and show off your inner foody.

I’m looking forward to trying out some “food quests”. What’s everyones thoughts?

Well we built a quick prototype (mobile + web autodetect) at http://foodifyapp.co and our team came 3rd out of all the competitors over the weekend. Woo! They liked some of our ideas in the presentation and the fact we had a working prototype built so quickly.

I would highly recommend that everybody attend a startup weekend in your area. Have a look at http://startupweekend.org and keep an eye out for one near you.

It was awesome :)

Attended one last year and we were the runner-up team – http://e27.co/?p=20362

Not much fun because what they really want is just the idea and the prototype. We present using a static html page. However, the fun part is actually able to work with a few awesome people, meeting new people, and enjoy the food in that country :)

Off to another startup weekend starting this Friday. Can’t wait!

Anybody else attending a startup weekend at the same time? This weekend is a bit special, they have organised heaps of events around the world to take place at the same time – apparently cities will compete against eachother for some uber grand prizes :)

http://startupweekend.org/events/

Hopefully there’s an startup weekend happening near you!
