4 Caffeinated Strangers Launch a Product, Live

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Watch this fast-paced experiment where four strangers come together to launch a product in an hour.
One supercoder will launch the back-end for an e-commerce website.
One design guru will bang out stylesheets and logos.
One statistics savant will build a forecast exploring an industry trend.
One moderator will keep the flow moving.
At the end of the hour, the industry forecast template will be available to the world. Seriously.
Join us to watch specialists actually do the work to create a knowledge product and sell it online. Our analyst will build a spreadsheet model to explore an industry trend. His advanced demo will use time-series analysis and Markov chains. The product will be listed on a WordPress powered site with payments through Stripe and a download management system. Our front-end designer will implement a template and give the site a custom feel with CSS tweaks. Then we all cross our fingers and click "launch."
