About the Talk
Mark Michael told the interesting story of the founding of DevHub.com, a free website builder that evolved from a tool for buiulding small business websites into a back end platform for publishing that is used by many of the world's most successful yellow page companies.
After seeing a free website builder, Daniel scoffed that it was "easy" to build something like that. Mark responded with a bet - he challenged Daniel to prove it by building an equivalent system from scratch within 30 days. Daniel accomplished that feat, and the rest is history. The prototype led to several rounds of funding and the growth of a successful (profitable) Seattle startup.
