    Where UX Meets Code: Get Started On Web & Mobile Development

    The front-end web and mobile development is where UX meets code.

    By Frances Advincula (Software Engineer, Accenture)

    When I was young, I wanted to be a fashion designer. But then I grew up and realized I actually have to be able to eat food and pay rent, so I became a software engineer instead.

    Now that I’ve slept a bit, I thought I’d post about the Mega Startup Weekend held at Microsoft this past Friday through Sunday. This one was a bit different than others I’ve been to because the organizers pre-selected three verticals: Health, Education, and Gaming.

    The weekend started off with a Mega-wide speech by Reid Hoffman, who encouraged everyone to “think big — it takes the same amount of work and pain as thinking small.”
