"How is competing in the Rumble like working on a normal web project? How does it differ?"


"Is it possible to build a real product this way? Have you continued to develop your web apps? Why or why not?"


"What sort of up-front planning and design work did you do?"


"How did you plan for the 80/20 rule in building web apps within a 48-hour time period?"

(20% of small tasks take 80% of the time)


"Did you use automated testing when you built your application?"


"What plugins / gems / tools did you find most helpful to develop a quality app quickly?"


"How did you find other people to work with and decide that you could work with them?

How similar do you think this is to the challenge of finding cofounders for a startup?"


"There have been many advances in the Rails world since the first event (starter applications, better tools, etc).

How has this changed the competition?"


"Were you co-located with your teammates during the event? If not, what type of collaboration tools did your team use to stay connected and on task?

IRC? IM? Highrise? Campfire?"


"Besides knowing Ruby and Rails, what other skills should my team have to be successful in an event such as this?"


"If you had only a single choice, what would you say was the most rewarding part of being involved in an innovation competition event?"


Thanks!

The next Rails Rumble takes place August 22nd / 23rd
