While I have never participated in a physical barn-raising myself, the good folks at Tech Birmingham have managed to stage an awe-inspiring event this weekend. The plan is starting tomorrow, November 9 and finishing Sunday night, November 11, to complete a beta release of an Internet startup.
If you are interested in the concept, or participating, you can get more information at Startup Birmingham.
Unfortunately, I will not be participating this year, as I have previously committed to speaking at SQL Saturday. See you Saturday if you are in the Orlando area.
