@bentossell Thanks! This book is the "Hello, World" tutorial for building a startup. I wish I had something like it back in college. By the time I graduated, I had a BS, a Masters, a bunch of internship experiences—and absolutely no idea what I was doing. What technologies should I learn and use? How do I build a product that doesn't look terrible? How do I negotiate a job offer? Should I negotiate for more salary or more equity? What is equity, anyway? I learned the answers to most of these questions the hard way. So did many other people, as I learned from interviewing programmers from some of the most successful startups of the last decade—including Google, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, GitHub, Stripe, Instagram, and many others. I hope everyone can learn from our mistakes :)
