Proof-of-Concept Delight

“The best way to have a good idea is to have a lot of ideas.” — Linus Pauling

But how do we know which of our ideas are good? By building prototypes, the faster the better!

In this talk, Joel will discuss how (and why) he builds as many proofs of concept as he can, as fast as he can; and how he makes sure his customers love them.
