Coudal and the Seed crew promised free entry into their conference, provided you make ’em something awesome.
Back in 2008, I wanted to attend the Seed Conference held in Chicago to learn from the likes of from Carlos Segura, Jason Fried, Jim Coudal, Jake Nickell, Jeffrey Kalmikoff and Gary Vaynerchuk. I was in luck.
The Seed folks offered an invitation to create something—anything—that was impressive, in return for free conference pass. I spent a weekend writing, designing and developing a website for them.
