Quick Lefters read a lot! Here's a sampling of the books that have heavily influenced individuals at Quick Left. From technology to economy, and even children's books, there's quite a variety. We hope you'll find our list useful!
As most of you know, Quick Left is very much embedded in the startup community. We understand the challenges entrepreneurs experience with regard to technological innovation, fundraising, expediting product launches, and hiring exceptional technical talent. Having worked with Techstars grads and Foundry Group-backed startups as well as established companies like Ping Identity, Red Robin and Photobucket, we decided it would be nice to give back to the startup community which has provided the support for us to grow and expand our offices, tech talent, and offerings.
Enter the Adopt a Startup competition hosted by Quick Left. This accelerator-esque startup competition offers pre-Series A companies the chance to apply to win a month ($64,000 value) of custom software development with a pair of our expert full-stack developers in exchange for value equivalent convertible notes. We’re accepting applications now through December 15 for work to begin January 5th.

Reminder from part 1: In this tutorial we’ll build a game that interacts with the Twitter API and challenges users to match a given Tweet with its author. The game is called Following, and you can play the fully-built version of it here: http://followingapp.herokuapp.com.
