Startup Weekend: Build A Startup In 54 Hours



Startup Weekend

Startup Weekend, a 54-hour long event which happens in more than 700 cities and has already created 13,000+ startups in the line. The weekend event is meant to gather developers, marketers, product managers, and startup enthusiasts to boost the spirit of Entrepreneurship through various means including technology.

Powered by Google for Entrepreneurs, Startup Weekend allocates a platform for entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs to test whether their ideas look good with ‘feasible’ label or not. Half of the weekenders at the event are of technical (or design) background, and the rest have entrepreneurial background. Linear to that, the exclusive weekend is globally partnered by Amazon Web Services (AWS), Coca-Cola, Go.Co, and of-course my favorite Google.

Kicking-off the open mic pitches on Friday, the participants express their respective ideas and designs onboard and rouse other attendees to come and join their team for a Minimal Viable Product (MVP), at-least for them. After initializing the team, the weekenders start working on it to make their startup a real game-changer.

The LEAN Startup methodologies, idea validation and customer development gets the spotlight under the mentorship of the team’s respective mentors (experts) on Saturday and Sunday, as the final presentation (demo) of their Startup goes live on Sunday evening. During that Sunday evening, Startup prototypes are reviewed and arbitrated by the panel of judges with their valuable feedback and more.

The event protocol is same for all 700+ cities where Startup Weekend is happening, or is scheduled to happen.

Watch Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2019 Live

“The Future Unfolds.”



Galaxy Unpacked 2019 Piazza del Duomo Rome

Samsung is set to reveal the next Galaxy line-up on Wednesday in San Fransisco. The company has been actively promoting the Galaxy Unpacked 2019 launch event over the past few weeks around the world.

Samsung’s announcement at Unpacked 2019 will see the tenth-anniversary Galaxy phone (more likely the S10). Citing reliable sources and several leaks in the past few months, the new Galaxy line-up will have a punch-hole display, triple camera setup, and possibly a consumer-ready foldable display on offer. That said, all these features are likely to sit on different models in the same line-up. And, that’s how Samsung does so many phones a year!

The Galaxy Unpacked 2019 starts at 11am PT/2am ET at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Fransisco. Samsung will be live-streaming the event as well. You can watch the Unpacked 2019 keynote here.

Apple Special Event scheduled for October 30, new iPad and Macs incoming

Apple loves New York, too!



Apple Special Event October 2018

Apple today sent out invites to the media for a Special Event on Tuesday, October 30. Surprisingly enough, the event will take place at the Howard Gilman Opera House in Brooklyn, New York instead of the Steve Jobs Theater in Apple Park, where Apple unveiled the iPhone Xs and iPhone XR last month.

The Special Event invite reads “There’s more in the making,” and doesn’t come in one single design teaser like past Apple event invites. Apple has used a slew of unique designs for the invite, which makes it no easy to decode or guess what in particular is in the making. Following the leaks and rumors that have been suggesting this event for some time now, however, we’re very likely to witness new iPad Pro and Mac hardware updates at the event.

New iPad & Macs

Apple is expected to bring Face ID on the iPad Pro with slimmer bezels and larger display. This will be the first time we’ll see Face ID on a device that’s not an iPhone. The company is also rumored to ditch Lightning port in favor of USB Type-C, which I still don’t think could be the case (but it should be).

Apple’s October Special Event is also for customers who’ve been waiting for an upgrade to the MacBook Air. As Bloomberg reported in August, the new MacBook Air will have slimmer bezels and a high-resolution Retina display to fit for Apple’s low-cost MacBook Air. That’s not all…! We could also see an upgraded Mac mini at the event, which will be targeted at power users.

Also, there are some chances that Apple will talk about the Apple Watch Series 4’s ECG app and the long-forgotten AirPower wireless charging mat that’s supposed to ship later this year. Yes, it’s been more than a year since Apple announced the AirPower charging mat.

Apple Special Event will be live streamed on Apple Events page so tune in at 10am ET on Tuesday, October 30 to watch the keynote live from New York. Stay tuned!
