Excited about Startup School 2013

At the moment, I’m sitting in my hotel room in San Jose after a decent morning relaxing and enjoying a great day outside. While it’s a bit chilly at home (66 degrees or so), and it’s about 80 degrees who am I to complain.

I am in San Jose to attend 2013’s Startup School . It is being put on by Y-Combinator and it has been going on for the last 5 years it seems. This is the first time I applied and was accepted so I am super excited. This year’s speakers doesn’t look to disappoint at all.
