How a Florida kid’s “stupid app” saved his family’s home and landed him on the main stage at Facebook

>For me, the key is to take 30 minutes on Sunday afternoon or evening and plan my week. I start with a new page in my notebook and draw the days of the week out vertically (Saturday and Sunday share the last row).

It involves multiple iterations of in-person, one-on-one interviews with target customers.  Every major startup pivot and some micro-pivots should be validated.  And the process should never stop.

Getting shit done with a computer is at the end of the day, what I’d like every kid to be able to do. Regardless of what you call my subject, I’ll always teach students how to get shit done with a computer, as that’s what I think they need to know.
