Some missing pictures. Sorry (cc Trey and a couple others)
I'd like to thank a couple of great people:
All the mentors and mine Ben Reinhart.
Kevin Willer and Caity Moran for letting us drink beer at 1871. When I should I move in?
Troy. You missed my presentation. That's ok. Just follow me on twitter or review my Excelerate application. No biggies.
Thanks to Code Academy for making this dream a reality
And to my people that supported me and inspired me including my brother Carlos Ordonez, my CTO Zeljko Dakic, my classmates Marcel and Chris. And the people that have inspired a lot through the last few months:John Schewe from Fricket, Mark Lawrence from Spothero and Seth Kravitz from Technori.
