Startup Weekend Seattle

The smell of stale pizza and socks filled the hallway as I strolled searching for the action at the Adobe campus. What does a Startup Weekend look like? Who will be there? All questions I didn't have the answers to. Then I saw it. The largest collection of nerds geniuses I had ever seen. They were connected to each other with laptops and cords resembling a little newborn still feeding from it's mother. And then I spotted my contact.

My contact being my friend Donald DeSantis, asked me to take some photos at last weekend's Startup Weekend event. "Startup Weekend is a 54 hour startup event that provides networking, resources and incentives for individuals and teams to go from idea to launch."

Basically, it's a bunch of tech gurus ranging from developers to designers who get together to come up with an idea for a company and have it rolling by Sunday. Amazing.

These guys developed iPhone apps and websites from ground zero to launch in three days. It was awesome. At 6pm on Sunday they presented their creations with live demos and all.

Here are some shots from the event.

If anyone at the event would like all the photos I edited from the event just shoot me an email though my site and I will send over a zip.
