Harper Reed – Startupfest 2014

Tech isn’t magic

While it seems like you can launch a startup out of thin air, there’s actually a. Lot of hard-core engineering under the covers. Ignore it at your peril. Prepare for it when your competitors haven’t, and you’ll win.

Join Harper Reed for an unfiltered look at the infrastructure it takes to win a market, an attack, or an election. Using examples from Threadless, Obama for America, and elsewhere, he’ll peel back the layers of the disaster onion, showing you why you can’t sit on the shoulders of giants without also looking them squarely in the eyes.
