I kind of agree with Rodney. I think the larger issue here that's being missed is using the power of the community for the greater good of all. In the young lady's case, the community members could provide valuable feedback as sort of a pre-launch test marketing to see if her project is even worthy of going into development. In other cases, the community could help promote someone else's ongoing project, or assist with funding, or publicity, or beta-testing or any number of other ways that could help. The mentality of "You build it first then I'll give you my opinion if I think it's special" is not really the definition of what a community
should be, in my opinion. Lord knows, the app stores are full of projects that were probably a waste of time and money. The very first thing you do once you have an idea for an app is to determine if there is a market for it. A community that gives informative suggestions and advice about what might help a project succeed seems like the better course to take than criticizing how a person chooses to manage it.

Subject: [Orlando-iOS-Developer-Group] Orlando Startup Weekend event
I attended the previous Orlando Startup Weekend in Nov 2012 and I had a great time. Unfortunately I missed the recent April 12 Orlando Startupweekend.
Has anyone in the Orlando iOS Developer
Group attended the Orlando Startup Weekend on the April 12 at Heathrow?
If so, what did you think? Were the majority of the ideas based on the web or mobile-apps ?
